5 Most Anticipated 2023 Web Design Trends to Watch Out For

web design

Web design trends come and go, but some remain more popular than others. While it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends, it’s also important to use trends that will be effective for your website. 

In web design, there are always new trends to follow. By discussing what’s trending, we can help you determine which trends to adopt, in order to keep up with your visitors’ expectations and make your site more appealing and functional.

Here are five web design trends you should be on the lookout for in the upcoming year.

1) Chatbots for Websites

Chatbots are computer programs that can mimic human conversation. They are commonly used to interact with customers on websites, and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as providing customer support, collecting feedback, or promoting products or services.

If you’re not currently using chatbots on your website, you should consider doing so. They can be a great way to improve customer satisfaction and engagement.

2) Prevalence of Colour Theory Application

Colour theory is the study of how colours can be used to create certain effects or emotions. It is used in a variety of fields, such as graphic design, web design, and marketing.

By understanding color theory in 2023, you can create color combinations that evoke the right emotions and communicate your message effectively. Different colors can create different feelings, so it’s important to choose the right colors for your site.

3) Flat Design

Flat design is a minimalist design style that uses flat icons and two-dimensional shapes to make websites and apps highly responsive and fast loading across a variety of screen sizes.

Flat design is a style of graphic design that uses simple shapes, typography, and colours. It is popular because it is easy to understand, and it can be used to create a variety of designs, including websites, logos, and illustrations.

If you’re looking to create a more minimalist website or want to create designs that are more user-friendly, you should consider using flat design.

4) Interactive Web Design

In 2023, it’s highly likely that more websites will become more interactive for the customers. Micro-animations are small, animated elements that are used to draw attention to specific elements on a page and add visual interest. They can be used to create playful interaction, to show the progress of a process, or to add humor.

Smart videos are videos that are designed to be interactive. They can be used to provide additional information about a product or service, to show how a product works, or to help users navigate a website.

5) More Accessible Web Design

With today’s technology, web designers are placing a greater emphasis on accessibility. Accessibility refers to the design of websites and web content that can be accessed and used by everyone, including people with disabilities.

Accessible websites are easy to use and navigate, and they provide equal access to all users. They are designed to be compatible with a wide range of devices and browsers, and they include features that make them easy to use by people with disabilities.


Web design is a constantly evolving field, and the trends that are popular today may not be popular tomorrow. However, the five trends that we have discussed are likely to remain popular for the foreseeable future.

Creating a website is way more than making it pretty. My business is centred around conversations yet the language is hugely different when it comes to digital web design. DMS, particularly Sammie, was able to guide me through the process of combining two historic websites and combining them so the narrative is (the feedback is resounding) 'crystal clear'. Not only that but my website looks amazing and navigates well for any user. One lady told me she got so distracted she went down lots of rabbit holes she wasn't expecting. When you get attention like that, it's priceless. If you're reading this and have been unsure what to do with your website, get in touch with Sammie. You won't regret it. Above and beyond is definitely better than smoke and mirrors.

A website upgrade was completed very professionally! Our input was the starting point and along side the expertise of the team we were able to create the perfect finish. Samantha's videos really helped to explain how to view the changes and add comments. First class service - would highly recommend!

We approached Digital Marketing Scotland to assist us with a rebrand project. We had a reasonably good idea of what we needed and briefed Neil accordingly. What impressed me about their work was that it didn’t result in endless meetings and design tweaks. He immediately understood what we needed and delivered a compelling identity for our sister company that is strong enough to stand independently and consistent with our overall brand identity. We will use Digital Marketing Scotland again without question.

Colin delivered SEO training to myself and colleagues in June 2023. He pitched the training perfectly for the room who had a mix of knowledge and experience, and gave us some really practical tips to improve our performance. Would definitely recommend Colin and Digital Marketing Scotland and would be happy to commission for training again.

We've worked with Colin a few times now re our online furniture business, Retrovintage. Colin has provided consultancy and link building services. He's approachable, available, communicative and supportive and we've seen real concrete results from our link building project, in terms of considerably improved Google rankings and website visitors.

Digital Marketing Scotland built us a new website as our previous one wasn't working as well as it should. Samantha and Colin were amazing to deal with and very patient all the way throughout the build. They helped us set up hosting and also set up a business email for us too. They have always been on hand to carry out changes and updates to the site. Highly recommend them to anyone looking to build or redevelop their website.
