Observe Engage Listen to Understand your users

Explore the UI/UX design trends predictions for 2021. The pandemic will still be the main theme for UI/UX trends in 2021.

1. Accessibility

Accessibility is no longer an option but a must. Make your websites, apps, products and services accessible to everyone, including those with special needs, disabilities, or impairments. 

Utilize our WCAG Accessibility Audit service to audit your platform now.

2. UX Writing

The need for UX writing is on the rise to create a consistent brand voice and language across all online and offline interfaces. 

3. Remote UX Research

Demand for remote usability testing is increasing due to the social-distancing requirements for COVID-19. This trend will likely prevail for other UX research methods even after the pandemic. 

4. VR and AR

VR and AR are being used intensively to create an interactive and virtual environment for the users, especially in the service sector such as tourism, hospitality and education.

5. A COVID-19 section for IA

Brands will create a semi-permanent and collapsible section on their websites to feature important updates related to COVID-19, such as promotions, campaigns, restrictions, etc.

6. Sustainability

Sustainability is a hot topic for a few years now and it can be applied for UX design too. Sustainable UX design means improving findability for your websites/ platforms and reducing the steps needed to reach the right content, thus reducing the carbon footprint.

7. Large Typography

Use large font sizes for the relevant and catchy page content to attract users.

8. Cards of multiple dimensions

Apple has introduced widgets that come in cards of different sizes (small, medium and large) in the iOS 14 release. 

UX designers will need to design cards for 3 different sizes going forward.
