Top 7 B2B Web Design Trends in 2022

Web design is an essential part of any 2024 marketing plan.

Keeping your website updated in the ever-growing online marketplace can help your business stand out. Best practices in B2B web design are ever evolving with advances in new technology. In 2023 we saw huge advances in Ai technology and the transformation of Twitter to X. No doubt, web design strategy, along with UX best practices has also continued to evolve.

In the technical B2B world, when you’re selling custom products & services, visitors to your website will perceive the quality of their experience with your website to be equal to the quality they can expect from your offerings. Staying current with the latest trends and techniques, while maintaining best practices in web design, will set the tone for your company to come across as a leader in your industry. These are the seven trends we’re seeing at our B2B website design agency:

1. High-Quality Photos

As we’re seeing advances in screen resolution, faster connectivity and simplified design, users are craving better imagery. And not just beautiful images, but images that are unique to your product or service. It’s critically important that any photos are an accurate portrayal of your offerings and the experience of working with your team. People often know when they’re looking at stock photography, and it can lower their level of trust or leave gaps in their understanding, so investing in unique, high-quality images will make a huge impact. When custom photography isn’t practical, very carefully selected stock photos can fill the gap.

For example, Kongskilde Industrial’s new website launched photography at the forefront of the website design. We utilized product photography in a unique mega menu design that allows users to visually navigate product categories. Additionally, application images were used to showcase the breath of their solutions.

2. Animation

One of the many benefits of faster-loading websites is the ability to use animation. While the majority of elements should remain static, creating visual interest or emphasizing key information with subtle movement is a B2B website design trend we anticipate to continue through 2024. When used sparingly and intentionally, this can add a fun, engaging touch to a website.

For example, Path Robotics, a supplier of robotic welding solutions, has a complex software program that is better explained using infographics with motion. In the design and development process, we strategically planned for the images to only move subtly, when hovered on, to keep the motion from overwhelming the user.

3. Content-Oriented Design

As WordPress and other web development software evolves toward editor-friendly and easy-to-update interfaces, we’re seeing more of an emphasis on layout and content design. Not so long ago, templates and “walls of text” dominated B2B web design, but now each page can be tailored and re-organized to cater to the specifics of the content.

4. “Scrollytelling”

Scrolling through a long web page can be something of a love-hate experience. Among web designers, the general consensus has been that overly long web pages are negative, but in 2024 we anticipate scrolling to be one of the biggest trends. Among users, scrolling has become second nature, so it’s not really seen as a chore. With more vertical space, designers are able to take dense and complicated information and transform it into an interactive experience that provides a narrative to users. This is especially seen on homepages that start with an overview at the top of the page, which typically consists of a strong positioning statement, overview of products/services, and problem/solution language, while providing deeper and more detailed information as you scroll down the page. The ability to add more visual content, infographics and imagery within this experience creates more effective website communication than words alone.

5. Sticky Menus

The trend of longer, scrolling website pages calls for the standard use of sticky menus. A fixed navigation bar, aka “sticky menu,” makes sure visitors don’t get lost. When the main menu is always available at the top of the screen, the user is free to scroll down a very lengthy page while maintaining constant access to other pages, without having to scroll back up to the top or down to the bottom.

6. Big, Bold Type

In our fast-paced, digital world we have less and less time to convert. With users spending less time on websites, designers are adapting to include large headlines and shorter messaging to capture attention. This is generally accompanied by additional content, in smaller type, to further explain concepts or increase SEO value, but we anticipate this bold, “less-is-more” approach to copywriting to continue through 2024.

Website design trends will continue to evolve as technology and tastes change. In B2B website design, you might not jump on every trend, but you’ll want to keep your website looking current and relevant, to help your business connect and convert.

7.  Grid Layouts

We’ve seen websites moving toward simplicity in layouts for the past few years. Grid layouts and compartmentalization are the next evolution. This design allows information to be presented in an easily-digestible, visually appealing format. Especially in B2B & industrial website design, users are able to move through a website with clear emphasis on key information and product features all in one viewport.
