UI design trends for 2021
Design trends come and go, some of which we can't help but adopt. We're currently building UI solutions to support those trends on our Drupal Starter site Convivial to get it ready for your next big site redesign.
Bright vivid colours
While this trend might be counteracted by another - brutalism - you’ll find a gluttony of sites brandishing a set of bright colours emboldened further with soft gradients. This of course poses some accessibility challenges with text overlapping such backgrounds. Check out Stripe.
The more courageous of the brands push their vivid colours even further with background gradient animations. Check out Qoals.
Peering through glass-like interface elements might hark back to Windows Vista times, and more recently with the latest builds of iOS. UI designers are taking it further with 'glassy' overlays to help text become a bit more accessible over gradients and bright backgrounds. Check out DesignCode.
Other trends to get you inspired
We’ll keep you updated as we release some of these and more on Convivial.
