9 Summer Website Design Trends for 2019

You wouldn’t still rock ‘80s style blue eyeliner, leg warmers, or parachute pants, so your website shouldn’t be sporting old trends either. Like fashion, website design trends are new and improving every year. If you’re not keeping up with the latest successful website designs, then your business isn’t seeing the success it could be. Whether you’re an expert graphic designer or not, the direction of your company relies on understanding basic design elements.

In addition, one of the most successful trends is user generated content. Companies like Pura Vida and Daniel Wellington use images of customers using their products in everyday life. It doesn’t get any more authentic than that.

Rapper/singer Drake went out on a limb with his design for the album “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” but clearly he knew what he was doing. Since then, several businesses have used this technique – and it’s working.
