Morpht: UI design trends for 2021

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.

Animated background

The more courageous of the brands push their vivid colours even further with background gradient animations. Check out Qoals.

Glassmorphism

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.
