3. Large typography, Creative and bold –
The reason of- why many websites and mobile apps use oversized headlines is here. By putting more visual weight on an important message you increase chances of users to read it. To do so, you need to add more room for messaging(means, use more negative space around the headlines). In most of the cases, typography is replacing background images and presents the main element of the page. This trend is known as Outline typography. These trends are mixed together and also combined with bold and large bodies.

As opposed to the resurgent color schemes famous in 2018, the minimalist design is coming. The severity of the interfaces is selected by the product companies, emphasizing the static nature, elitism and the high quality of their services and products. Minimalism is achieved by using a monochrome color palette and also bold font turns.
Trends in UX design
1. Voice in interfaces-
How frequently did you hear “OK, Google?” recently. Google, Alexa, and Siri are our everyday helpers. Practically 50% of all searches are being made using the voice because there are numerous advantages, for example, no need to use your hands.
Micro-interactions provide a highly natural view of the interface. People use micro-interactions in all software products. With fluid, animation makes, the interface looks more dynamic and lighter and it also makes ordinary interactions more entertaining.
With the output of buttonless phones, where the whole surface of the phone’s front panel occupies the screen, gesture control has become a vital way to deal with navigation. Now everybody needs to reduce the number of controls and increase the intuitive gesture control.
4. Thumb- friendly experience-
A years ago, the smart phones that were released by top mobile companies get large enough screens (5’7-‘6’2). This thing makes our fingers and hands practice at stretching. Thumb-oriented design transports all important and frequently used controls to the bottom of the screen. You can reach fundamental parts of your application with the use of only your thumb, without the help of your other hand. But, honestly, the moving of this trend began quite a while prior with the development of bottom navigation menus.
