In this section we will discuss the trends in web design which will dominate in 2020 and beyond. This includes current trends that in the near future will reach their peak, or new trends that have emerged recently from web design agencies around the world. So, let’s look at some of the key trends in Web design for 2020.
The days are gone when web designers used to follow a simple grid style. Further designers are expected to experiment with asymmetric or split grid architectures in 2020.
This will involve placing elements of the design in an unorganized way to give them a random look and feel. The key driver for this phenomenon will be the fact that the website is more innovative and adventurous with messy design elements. Breaking from tradition distinguishes those websites.
That is not only a recent trend, but in 2020 and beyond it will gain more attention.
This will be a growing trend with increasing awareness and understanding of the importance of making websites available to all. Many websites may seek to comply with ADA requirements and add features for accessibility.
Web design companies will incorporate usability solutions based on AI, such as accessiBle, to make ADA compliant websites open to all users. Powerful accessibility solutions such as these will detect any accessibility issues automatically and make websites accessible within days.

When people strive to give their websites more personality and character, more websites can incorporate these elements. Hand designs, doodles, sketches etc. bring beauty to the website and a human element.
Websites that contain such elements will stand out from the sea of websites out there, all trying to distinguish. This trend has been around for some time now but has yet to peak.
This is a web design trend which is still in its infancy but will grow stronger by 2020 and beyond. You can already see this on some beauty websites where you can upload your picture and try on the products for making up. The concept will also be followed in the future by other forms of retail websites such as clothing, home decor, etc. As technology advances, web designers will find it easier to incorporate these AR elements to their websites and apps. There are several resources like Artivive that let you add elements of AR design to your website without much trouble.
