So we’re already into 2017, in case you haven’t noticed. That means you probably have already broken one of your New Year’s resolutions. Don’t worry, my resolution to get better sleep has already been dashed.
But one of my resolutions that I will not be breaking is to become a better graphic designer in 2017. And this is great news for you, because I will help you also become a better designer in the process.
Graphic design trends that will take over
Use Louder and Brighter Colors
Use Bold Typography
Use Google Fonts
Use Authentic Photos
Hand Draw graphics and icons
Be a minimalist
Use Vibrant Duotones
Using bold color accents will also help many brands cling to their minimalist roots. By
infusing bright colors with traditional neutral backgrounds, companies can give their
branding a fresh new look without straying too far from what made them great.
Bold typography will also ﬁght against the ever-dwindling attention spans of readers, and
the saturation of content. Big and daring fonts will be used to grab the eye.
Duotones are simply the combining of two colors on an image, usually using very bright or
contrasting colors. They require a bit of design work but it is most deﬁnitely worth it.
