Do you agree with the experts? Or have they missed a crucial web design trend? If you're after extra information on each of these trends, the experts have shared more detailed insights over on the Market Inspector site.
Breaking down each topic one by one, the minds behind the infographic give a reasoned look at why each trend was included. Bold colours and gradients appear to be the standout trend to take note of, while custom images and mobile designs continue to be important factors to consider. Virtual Reality is low on the list, but it's still worth taking note of. A lot can change in 12 months so who knows, perhaps it will be on the up in 2019.
