Here are our top 5 tips to stay ahead of the web design trends in 2020.


1. Dark Mode


Not only does it look extremely modern but Dark mode web designs are really easy on the eyes and allow colours and design elements to stand out more.

Commonly, it’s the most visually pleasing website trends that have practical beginnings. Dark mode themes prove more effective for OLED screens, which extends screenlife span and saves power; the fact that they look good is a major added advantage. Using Dark Mode can improve the visibility of other colours to make your web design be more engaging. 

The Dark Mode trend fits in perfectly with the prevalent 2020 design trends that are seeing people use dark moody colour schemes matched with glowing neon not only online but throughout homes and office spaces. Keeping up with the trends and visually pleasing the user is half the battle.

2. Website Load Time and Page Speed Are Key


One of the most important website standards is having a super fast load time. Quick load times have been an essential aspect in SEO for many years and it continues to be one of the most important  things for websites to get well ranked and boost conversion rates. 

Recent studies have shown that more than half of internet users expect a website to load fast, no more than three seconds after clicking the link. If it takes more than four seconds most people trying to enter the site will leave, which gives a bad user experience; making it unlikely that the user will ever click on your website link again. 

It’s evident that website speed and load time have a critical impact on a businesses bottom line. Pinterest reduced perceived “wait times by 40%, and this increased search engine traffic and sign-ups by 15%.”
