Design Trends That Are Taking Over

Trends come and go. They are influenced by things like media, technology and usability, … and emerge gradually.  But it’s important to keep your work looking fresh and up-to-date. Here are five trends that will take your work to the next level in 2017 and beyond.

Duotone

Yes, its back and better than ever! Take two bright colors and an interesting composition and you will get mind blowing results. Your work will not go unnoticed.

Bright Colors

This trend does not play it safe. It’s eye-catching and can be used on all types of design. It gets you noticed, especially when you use it on business cards, posters and websites.

Geometric Design

This has been around for a while, not just in graphic design but in all forms of design. It looks clean, modern, classy and creates an interesting composition.

Typography Combos

Using typography as a graphic element is nothing new. But mixing and matching with other font families and images is another great way to make your work stand out, not to mention unleash your creativity!

Asymmetry

Break the rules of symmetry and you’re left with amazing results. I’m all about symmetry, but when a layout is unbalanced you can achieve cutting-edge designs that stand out from the pack.

The remainder of 2017 is looking bright and edgy! More trends will emerge and disappear and I’m already excited to see what the hot new trends are for next year.
