The designer needs to stay on top of the latest design trends and as the year is ending I’ve listed the biggest, impactful UI/UX design trends for 2022
Brutalism seems to be a counter-trend for all the designs that are full of gradients, shadows and smiling 3d characters.
Brutalism embraces flat design, strong outlines, contrasting colors, bold typography and real/life photography. However, this new iteration of Brutalism forgoes one of its main defining factors — the seemingly absent grid. Currently, it uses all of the other traits but conforms to a more standard layout, often seen in other design styles.
2. Isometric illustrations
Isometric illustrations exist pretty much everywhere — in movies, video games, and adverts on the streets. According to statistics, this type of content can convert 7 times better than any other type of visual content. Today companies take more advantage of custom illustrations. Using custom illustrations, the company demonstrates the uniqueness of the values of its brand. This approach in design helps businesses get closer to their customers by making their experience with a brand more personalized.
3. Bold Typography
Bold typography is extremely popular this year, Bold typography is one of the easiest ways to grab users’ attention. It stands out from its surroundings and demands to be read. But it has to be an integral (and integrated) part of the overall aesthetic plus well thought out before implementing it in your design.
Neumorphism represents a very detailed and precise design style. Highlight, shadows, glow — attention to every detail is very impressive and definitely on spot. Neumorphism has already inspired a lot of designers from all over the world.
