Let’s face it: trends are constantly coming and going. In the never-ending competition to stay current with design shifts- is there a cost for users? When it comes to ecommerce, every unique experience, from the site structure to the micro-interactions, must keep customers forming a bond, advocating for their brand, and returning for more.
We looked at current, popular ecommerce design trends and discovered sites that use them to their advantage to create a better shopping experience. The trends that we reviewed include:
- Long scrolling pages
- Smooth animations and narratives
- Autoplay videos
- Unconventional navigations
- More minimalism
- Ghost buttons
- Conversational forms
Check out our white paper to learn how to take advantage of these design trends from a user experience (UX) perspective as you work to optimize your ecommerce site for 2018.
