Creating websites is not just about coding. This field, like any other, has its trends and requires adaptation to new technologies, user needs and aesthetic expectations. So that the effect is really good, pleasing to the eye, but also fulfills its functions.

What can we expect from the latest trends?

In 2024, we can expect websites to be even more immersive, interactive and intelligent, using advanced features and elements to increase user engagement and satisfaction.

We have selected for you some of the most popular trends that will dominate website design in 2024 🙂

Firstly, minimalism and simplicity

This trend is always in fashion. Nowadays, we experience information overload, which is why a minimalist approach to website design is becoming more and more popular. Simple, clear layouts, limited use of colors and graphics make websites clearer and easier to navigate.

Micro-interactions and micro-animations

Sounds complicated? In fact, it’s very simple. Micro-interactions and micro-animations are small animations that provide subtle feedback to users visiting websites. For example, when a user hovers over a link, the link may change color, size, or shape to indicate that it is clickable. These small details add life and dynamics to a website and improve its usability and enjoyment. In 2024, we can expect micro-interactions and micro-animations to become even more advanced and creative, using various effects, sounds and movements to surprise and delight users.

Dynamic cursors

The cursor is important, you can even say that it is one of the most important elements of what we see on the website. We can use the cursor to point, select and manipulate elements on the page. In 2024, we can expect cursors to be even more dynamic and adapted to the context in which they are located. For example, the cursor can change color, shape or size depending on what it is pointing at, or respond to the user’s movements and gestures. It sounds really interesting 😉 Thanks to this, you will have the impression of creating interactions with three-dimensional objects. Additionally, dynamic cursors can help with page navigation and orientation by highlighting important elements or indicating the direction of scrolling.

Interactive 3D models and content

Three-dimensional models and content are another trend that is gaining popularity in website design. Thanks to advances in WebGL technology, websites can now display realistic and detailed 3D images that can be rotated, zoomed in and out by the user. All this is intended to better present products, services, data, history or any other information that will increase its attractiveness and be more understandable thanks to its three-dimensional form. Additionally, they aim to make the user feel more present and engaged, especially when paired with VR or AR technology.

Gamified design

This trend involves using elements known from games to design websites. Its goal is to increase user motivation, engagement and loyalty by offering them fun, challenges, rewards and social interactions. Examples of gamified design could be point systems, levels, achievements, rankings, quizzes, avatars, missions, storylines, or any other elements that make the user feel like they are in the game. Gamified design can be used for various purposes such as education, marketing, e-commerce, health, entertainment or social.

Material design

Material design has been around since 2014, when it was first introduced by Google. However, it has since become one of the most popular and influential trends in web design. Material design is based on the metaphor of a physical material that has its own properties, such as shape, color, shadow, texture, movement and response to touch. It strives to create a consistent, intuitive and elegant user interface that complies with the principles of good design and accessibility. In 2024, it will evolve even more and experiment with new effects, colors and animations to give the website depth and character.


So this is what web design looks like for 2024 🙂 In short, we can say that it will be full of innovation and creativity, there will be no shortage of new technologies and opportunities. And all this so that websites not only please the eye with a nice design, but are also functional, useful and engaging. And these are just some of the many trends that we will see this year;) All those who design websites should also be up to date with emerging trends, not forgetting, of course, the principles of good design and adapting to the needs and preferences of their clients.
