Let's Peep into the Future of UX Design - Next Generation UX

The globe has never been more technologically connected than it has been in the last decade. This trend has only been accelerated by the global epidemic. As a result, talents like UX (user experience) and UI (user interface design) have never been in higher demand.


With aesthetics cited by 52% of users as the primary reason they won't return to a website, there's no question that good design is more important than ever before.

UX has been an ever-evolving field, with new techniques and technologies being developed all the time. Some experts believe that in the future, UX design will become even more important. With so many devices and platforms now available, it is more important than ever to create a smooth and satisfying user experience.


The future of UX design is exciting. Here are just a few trends that we can expect to see in the years to come:


Ease of Use Through Gestural Interfaces and Motion Graphics

It's no longer enough to create a helpful product that addresses a problem for the user. Users are expecting more now and in the years ahead. As a designer, you should employ items that are not only useful but also easy to interact with, entertaining, and visually appealing. Motion design is a fantastic method to keep consumers engaged and make their experiences as seamless as possible.

Similarly, incorporating gestural interaction (such as swiping, pinching, tapping, or tilting the screen) is what you should expect to grow in demand. While it may take some getting used to, users are becoming more and more comfortable with it. Gestures make interactions more natural and intuitive, providing a more immersive experience.


Designing AR/VR and 3D Interfaces

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are still in their early stages of development, but they are already proving to be incredibly useful and popular. As per a report by Grand View Research, the virtual reality market is expected to increase at an annual rate of 18% from 2021 to 2028.

IKEA, Target, and Home Depot are among the companies that have already included augmented reality in their online shopping experiences. Let's not forget when Pokemon Go's augmented reality technology grabbed the world by storm and quickly became one of the most popular mobile games of all time.

A wide range of organizations are gearing up to leverage these simulated environment technologies, whether it's partial, full, or mixed-reality and people are more thrilled than ever to interact with them. Designers who can create interfaces that work in VR and AR will be in high demand. Additionally, as 3D printing becomes more popular, we can expect to see more 3D interfaces being used. It's an exciting time to be a designer, and the future is looking bright!


Designing for Voice Interfaces

With the advent of voice-activated devices like Amazon Echo and Google Home, it's no surprise that designing for voice interfaces is becoming more important. According to a study by Google, voice search on mobile is used by 27% of the global online population and is expected to grow.

Currently, many of the voice interfaces being designed are for use with smart home devices. However, as these devices become more popular, we can expect to see them being used in a wider range of applications. It's important for designers to keep in mind that voice interfaces are quite different from traditional graphical interfaces and require a completely different design approach.


The Need for Interactive Elements Without Compromising on the Speed

Nowadays, users are no longer satisfied with static websites that just display text and images. They want interactions and engagement. However, at the same time, they don't want to wait for long periods of time for pages to load. This is where interactive elements come in.

By using CSS animations and JavaScript, designers can create engaging user experiences, but it comes at the cost of increasing page speed. For this reason, designers who can find the right balance between interactivity and speed will be in high demand.


Conclusion

It's an exciting time to be a designer, and the future is looking bright! With so many new technologies and trends on the horizon, there are plenty of opportunities for designers to create amazing user experiences.

It's also important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and technologies so that you can create designs that are not only beautiful but also user-friendly and engaging.
