Blog Design Trends For 2019

Another year has almost been and gone. 2018 was a year of monumental change in website design. New trends came to the fore, whilst particular styles and tactics were cast away. 2019 is going to be no different. As long as the Internet continues to grow at the rapid pace it currently is, we can expect changes in the industry to be frequent. Keeping that in mind, read on to discover some of the best trends for your blog during the months ahead…

Security first

There is only one place to begin, and this is with website security. Internet users today are more careful than they ever have been, and rightly so. It is up to you to make them feel safe when they enter your blog. You need to look for tools like identity verification services that are dependable to make sure that this is the case. Security is only going to get more and more important as time passes.


The popularity of videos is set to soar over the coming months, let alone the coming year. Nowadays it is all about providing individuals with easy, convenient and effective ways to find out information. Many companies are in favor of videos because at the end of the day, why read something when you can watch it? This is particularly beneficial when trying to show off one of your products on your e-commerce website.


This is a trend that seems to be growing year on year, and in 2019 we can really expect to see it reach its peak. User interactivity and animation have allowed storytelling to be taken to an entirely new level. So, how does it work? It’s quite simple. The idea is that as a user scrolls down your blog page, the page morphs along the way to tell a story. This visual concept is being embraced by a lot of the best companies. It offers an easy, effective and enjoyable way of explaining a procedure or what your business is all about. It’s definitely a lot more exciting than reading a block of text.

Flat design

Flat design is definitely going to be embraced throughout 2019. This all began with Apple making the move away from gradients and drop shadows to provide customers with a completely flat design. More and more sites are embracing this now. It looks cleaner, neater and many will agree that it is more visually appealing. Moreover, if Apple has set a trend, you can guarantee there will be plenty of followers.

So there you have it – some of the top trends to embrace throughout the coming year. From flat design to storytelling, there are some exciting changes happening in the industry. And, as always, you have to be ready to adapt to them.  Nonetheless, remember, you should never just implement a trend for the sake of it. Think carefully about what it is going to offer your client’s website.

The women who have turned a space on the Internet into a full-fledged business are brilliant, hard-working businesswomen who don’t get enough credit.”

According to Forbes, she continues to provide business advice saying, “Be creative, work hard, stay positive, never give up and be willing to take risks!”

Blair Eadie: Pronovias’ 2017 American It Bride

PRONOVIAS, the leading Company in the world of wedding dresses, moves full speed ahead with its successful digital project, #PronoviasItBrides,  conceived with the purpose of inspiring all future brides to say “I do” while wearing  their dream dress that enhances one’s individual style and personality.

Thanks to the success of the project, Pronovias plans to support it further as it believes in the importance of uniting the tradition of the Spanish company with the most influential digital ambassadors, creating relationships with the best-known and loved faces in social media. Last year, Pronovias worked with American influencers Whitney Port, Danielle Bernstein, Rumi Neely, and Jennifer Grace to head the It Bride campaign in the USA. This year, the American face of the Atelier Pronovias 2017 Collection is NYC-based Blair Eadie, author of the hit fashion blog, Atlantic-Pacific.

With a total social media following of over 1.5 million followers, Eadie was an obvious choice for the bridal firm; she knows how to effectively connect with her audience, creating authentic content and always making sure her posts give her followers an added value. Moreover, Eadie’s personal fashion aesthetic was an ideal match for Pronovias, taking ultra-feminine bridal gowns and giving them her unique NYC-chic twist.

Eadie wore a total of 6 gowns during the New York City photo shoot, which included backdrops of the iconic New York City Public Library, mid-town Manhattan traffic, and a scenic rooftop in Brooklyn. Out and about in the big apple was the perfect location for this shoot, showcasing how the fast pace of today’s world can still pause for a moment to capture beauty and celebrate ever-evolving bridal style.

As both parties of the collaboration begin to publish the photos and video from the #PronoviasItBridesshoot, the goal is that Eadie’s personal style shines through and brides-to-be everywhere are inspired with the fresh, fashion-forward finished product.
