As experienced designers, we are always searching for the best ways to build strong-performing websites. Here is a list of our top 5 website design trends for 2022.
1. Side Navigation
Opting for a side navigation menu allows you to beautifully showcase all of the most important content about your business. This does not mean you have to discount other internal pages. The pages on your menu can hold the most impactful information along with suitable links for viewers to engage with. Good navigation can allow visitors to search through your site for longer, giving them confidence in the services they can receive. This design option works incredibly well for mobile users, as they often scroll vertically in an automatic response. This is a perfect way to enhance your SEO.

2. Bold Colour Choices
Give your brand a statement! If your brand is loud, cultural, or just incredibly interesting then this might be the trend for you. This style isn’t the perfect fit for everyone, however, when bold colours are used in the correct way they can create stunning websites. Enhancing visuals with strong colour combinations is a great way to drive interest.

Simplicity is key when it comes to designing a website, especially with today’s minimalistic trends. It provides a sense of safety for viewers whilst allowing them to navigate through your site easily. A great way to enhance simplicity whilst working with a large amount of content is to keep ‘user experience’ in mind. Information can be stored within interactive elements, separate PDFs, brochures, and other internal pages. Keep organised when it comes to designing a website, always try to create an initial site map to refer back to, or simply cut back on information and content.

4. Cinematic Headers
Large videos and photographic headers are a fantastic way to show off your brand. They give the homepage a stronger overall look whilst increasing immediate interest from viewers. The trick is to reduce the amount of text when using a cinematic header. If you would like an overlaying statement make sure it’s readable and impactful.

5. Illustration & Animation
Illustrations are a great way to personalise your brand. Graphics provide visual information, add colour, and give structure to website content, all whilst reinforcing your brand. The main benefit of using illustrations throughout your website is to help viewers comprehend what they are reading. Adding motion to illustrations is a fantastic way to drive attention to a focal area.
