The infographic was inspired by 99Designs' list of web design trends. Over the past few years, vintage aesthetics have been taking over the design world, so it came as no surprise to see 'retro revolution' sitting on this trends list. 99Designs explains that, "The 2020s were once considered the future of design and technology. We are now turning our backs on the polished minimalism of the now and are looking to the past for inspiration". 

One trend we didn't expect to make the line up was 'moving type', where designers animate the text on their website. We've seen plenty of UI elements and graphics with animations on websites, but not a lot of moving text before. We're looking forward to seeing how creatives incorporate this trend into their designs though.

Equipped with this list and our very own roundup of web design trends for 2022, you'll have everything you need to create a beautiful and engaging website that stands out among the competition.
