Analysis – Vengage “8 New Graphic Design Trends 2017”
Wether we realize it or not, we intake these graphic design trends visually on a day to day basis. These sublte changes in trends influence our decisions to purchase products, or even the clothes we wear. Ryan McCready of Vengage does a great job in this article dissecting the top 8 trends that have emerged for 2017. Bright, bold, clean minimalism has been hott this year, and since we are halfway into 2017 it is safe to confirm his trend predictions were accurate.
The best example he discusses was Spotify in my eyes. There was a time you would walk through a CD aisle and look at the covers, and visually intake a mish mash of eye catching designs. That doesn’t happen too often at all in retail storefronts now, but has moved to onilne platforms like Spotify. The punchy colors and sharp geometric accents are part of Spotify’s signature design look. An artists image is set to a Hard Light, or Mulitply blending mode against a bright background, and it stands out immediately.
These trends were not only great for 2017, but my predictions would be that they will easily carry into 2018 with the same verocity.
