Comparing these portals with each other, recurring UX “trends” have emerged: it seems that the design choices are moving away from a minimalist visual and tend to include dynamic elements, very large titles, the inclusion of videos or animations within the content.
The flat design, more in vogue a few years ago, tends to be replaced by the material design, which aims to convey a sense of materiality and modernity.
What gives this type of approach its peculiarity is the use of UX design methods that are generally suitable for printing, the use of grid-based layouts, shadows, and animations.
Another trend expected from multiple sources for 2019, which aims to perfect the user experience of the user, the implementation of interfaces and 3D technologies. Using these techniques of representation, it is, in fact, possible in many contexts to create a deeper level of interaction through the game of three dimensions.
In this way, not only space is recovered through the third dimension, but it is also possible to present the contents in a more creative and engaging way.
However, the three-dimensionality also concerns the most strictly visual aspects: the widespread use of gradients gives depth to the image.
Among the other UX trends of 2019, they also configure voice commands and the frequent elimination of buttons on the screen, replaced by gestures: the scenarios in which the gestures replace the interaction elements of the interface are more and more frequent; this same approach leads to the facial recognition or the user fingerprinting.
