UX Meso Trend

Creative data visualization

Infusing creativity into product analytics, data visualization employs unique graphs, animations, and colors correlated with data to enhance engagement and compellingly deliver information.

Useful, actionable content

People are inclined to purchase from companies with mobile sites or apps that facilitate easy access to information. Therefore, clearly articulating the problem a product solves in its descriptions becomes crucial.

Personalized experience

As users access abundant web content, apps and websites personalize experiences based on factors like location, demographics, and behavior. The UX designer's aim is to narrow the gap between user expectations and actual experiences, creating tailored journeys.

Visual Commerce

Online shoppers miss the visual experience of brick-and-mortar stores, but virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) offer an immersive solution during lockdowns, providing a simulated and engaging product exploration.

Color Trend


Bright hues like Nasturtium defy conventions, injecting energy and signaling steps towards a brighter future for all.


Restful and reassuring tones are essential, with Crystal offering a clean and calming pale tint, while Halogen Blue provides a versatile mid-tone that is both soothing and invigorating.

Wellness-inspired natural
