Innovative web design trends for 2022

The design of the website is future-oriented. Thanks to its relationship with technology, the digital sphere can be a showcase for new innovations in animation, interactivity and overall immersion every year.2022 has a lot to look forward to, as we will soon see from the next trends in web design.

Styles from the 80s and 90s are making a comeback, typography is taking over and live animation is reaching new heights. At the same time, visual styles range from the unexpectedly high-tech to the quirky and handmade.

Retro fonts

We’ve seen a lot of old things become cool again, and then in turn become even less cool. Think mom’s mustache and jeans. Ironically, the shelf life is short. The popularity of retro fonts goes through the same ups and downs, and many retro typefaces haven’t aged well.

However, retro typography is experiencing something of a revival. We don’t see the same lousy typefaces anymore. Instead, stylization and a bit of artistry are redefining vintage type.

Recent advances in internet technology have made the frosted glass effect easily achievable for websites. The fuzzy appearance of the element behind the frosted glass helps add color to the website, while allowing text or objects to appear in the image and remain legible.

Accessibility and usability

Inclusion and accessibility are not just a trend, but are increasingly required in web design to take into account the needs of people with disabilities. Having a website that every visitor can navigate and interact with is not only part of good customer service and providing a great experience. It can increase conversions, improve your SEO and help you reach a wider audience.

  • The elements to improve accessibility include.
  • Creating a strong color contrast between text and background.
  • Adding focus markers, such as rectangular outlines that appear around links during keyboard navigation.
  • Use form fields with tabs and captions instead of low-frame text.
  • Use functional alt tags for images (this also helps with SEO!)


Cinemagraphs – high-quality videos or GIFs that play in a smooth, continuous loop – have become a popular way to add motion and visual interest to static pages. Full-screen loops, like this example from French creative agency Social Brain, create instant interest on an otherwise simple page.
