Microinteractions exist pretty much in every single app and website so every time if you open your favourite app you see them.  Usually  these are small items although, if you remove them from your app or web you will be notice very quickly that something very important is missing. Microinteractions are the perfect proof that details and attention to them might greatly improve the overall user experience of your digital products and place them on the higher level.

 

Virtual reality

VR is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely from the real world. 2019 has been a big year for VR. Mostly in the gaming industry in the last years we have seen a lot of progress in VR headsets. Sony and Microsoft will release their new generation consoles in middle of 2020. These would bring a lot of opportunities and room to growth for VR technology.

Augmented reality is rather different from virtual reality. AR , adds to the reality you would ordinary see rather than replacing it. In the last years we have seen a lot of progress, excitement of AR.

What is Neumorphism? Neumorphism is a visual style that blends techniques from skeuomorphism, realism, and flat design. Generally speaking Skeuomorphic design refers to the design elements that are created in a realistic style  to match the real life objects. As you probably noticed: Neumorphism represents very detailed, minimal and precise design style. Highlight, glows, shadows- attention to details is very impressive and definitely on spot. In our point of view  Neumorphism will be the biggest UI design trend in 2020.

In 2019 we have experienced huge grown of asymmetrical layouts in digital product design. Slowly traditional template based layout are definitely going to disappear. Asymmetrical layouts gives us a lot of space and add a lot of character and personality to our designs.  There is a lot of room for creativity as the number of options and opportunities when creating these layouts are endless. Although, creating successful asymmetrical layouts requires some practice and a lot of time.
