Website Design, 25 Unique Ideas to Enhance Appearance and Functionality. – Part 1

Introduction:

We have compiled, from separate sources, 25 Website Design Ideas.


Neumorphism In User Interfaces

Imagine your classic iOS or Android interface for a music player. You have the background, on which we place several components, adding layers and creating depth. With neumorphism, you’d be creating a soft interface, in which the UI elements aren’t placed on the background – but behind it.

It gives a feel that components like buttons or cards are actually inside the background, and are only visible because they’re protruding from within. The general style is all about solid colors, low contrast and the right play of shadowing in the UI design.

Glassmorphism

If you like to keep your fingers on the pulse of the latest web design trends, you’ve probably already heard of Glassmorphism. Eye-catching and colourful, this trend favours transparency and multi-layered approaches. Designed to resemble milky glass surfaces, it has caught a lot of attention. Just like its cousin Neomorphism, which was all the hype last year, it shines bright – when applied correctly! Here is what you need to know before you start using this UI design trend!

What is Glassmorphism?

There is a new kid on the block (or should we say returning to the block) that is rapidly gaining popularity. Vividly coloured backgrounds, frosted-glass effects and seemingly translucent objects floating in space, the UI trend appropriately dubbed ‘Glassmorphism’ pushes and bends boundaries. And we can’t wait to explore it with you!

Comfortable Colors

When setting out to design a website, a top priority is perfecting your website’s color palette. The best way to do this is to look at existing websites and to research competitors, so we’ve done the leg work for you and compiled a list of 11 website color schemes that work perfectly for each brand.

But, hang on a minute. What if you already have a website color palette in mind that you know you want to use? Well, sure, that’s a great start but it’s important to consider what you want your website color scheme to say before rushing into anything…

Asymmetric Layouts

Some trends stay with us forever, turning into classic solutions. Others vanish without leaving a trace. You may think that all trends break into these two groups, but that’s not quite true. There is another category of trends whose life has its ups, downs and calm periods. Such trends keep appearing and disappearing all the time. One such trend is the use of split screens. The split screen took the web by storm several years ago. It was incredibly popular in those days. There were even premium WordPress themes built around this approach. And that’s a big deal. However, slowly but surely its enormous popularity faded away and we started to forget about this interesting layout solution for hero areas.

Recently, it has awoken and reminded everyone about its incredible charisma with some tiny changes in appearance. Asymmetrical split screens are a new twist on the old trend that ignites passion and excites the minds of web developers.

Gradient Color Scheme

If you’re looking for a fun and unique way to bring your clients’ websites to life, color gradients may be the web design trend to try this year. In this article, we’ll discuss the use of gradients and provide you with tips and inspiring examples.

Color gradients aren’t new to web design. Remember skeuomorphism? We used gradients back then to give digital objects a 3D look. But as minimal and flat design took over the web in the 2010s, we saw gradients fall more and more by the wayside. It wasn’t because they were outdated, it’s just that designers didn’t have much use for them with the current web design trends.
