Bright & Bold Color designs:
The new design trends go for bold color choices, edge-to-edge imagery, large-scale typography and intentional white space that gives a bold graphic look. The vibrant colors inspired by 1960’s favors neons, pastels and richer saturated colors.
Geometric patterns and shapes can be applied in many ways such as backgrounds, individual graphic elements or as an illustrative technique. The new emerging style is “Low Poly” that started as a 3D modelling technique for games. This style will continue to show up outside the gaming world in print and web projects.
Segmented or modular layouts are being adopted by many big brands for their mobile apps as well as for websites. For this the designs are organized according to grid. The self-contained cards or modules can be used as primary organizational principle that has created the new trend in designing.
The new trend in typography is that it is not only for reading but also for becoming the center of attraction that can attract readers through bold colors, big textures or arrangements. The loud and lively typography creates an eye-catching and engaging content.
The graphics are mostly being replaced by customized illustrations and imagery. Generic look is considered as outdated by designers as well as business owners. Brands and other businesses are emphasizing on design-centric approaches. This has led to more personalization of imageries and illustrations.
The styling trends are growing more towards minimalism and distorted or deconstructed recognizable forms. The styling may involve vibrant colors but the text is kept minimum and primary visuals are made by mixing vague organic shapes and abstract.
