Top 5 Graphic Design Trends for 2019
2018 was a great year for graphic design. Whether you are a graphic designer or are working with one, you need to stay updated with the latest graphic design trends for 2019. Styles change and evolve over time leaving the work fresh and impactful for the audience. Let’s take a look at the hottest goings in graphic design from illustrations to logo design and much more.
This trend dominated 2018 and show no sign of going anywhere this year. This year, there’s been a huge focus on duotone gradients rather than flat colors. Duotone gradients are being used by a lot of websites which prefer brighter gradients with a dark theme to give a ‘tech’ feel. Gradients are now documented as colors and are seen in logo designs and graphics. A gradient delivers a sense of life and movement within itself which makes it look magical and noticeable. This can be the only reason for their sudden surge in popularity.
Creating a whole universe in a tiny place is what you call an isometric design. The isometric design is highly demanded in graphic design. By looking at it, the isometric design may seem highly technical, but it’s simply drawing a three-dimensional object in two dimensions. Yes, the drawing is simple and clean but has a depth within. The isometric design is mostly being used with icons and layouts. They are a lot cooler than the regular flat designs and can be saved to a smaller file size than 3D.
Adding a personality to designs is not a piece of cake. One conventional way that designers are adding the ‘omph’ factor in their typography is the rise of custom font usage. Brands refrain from using the font which has already been used by a hundred other brands. Therefore, more and more brands are making custom fonts that inject a feeling of uniqueness in their brand. With such a rapid growth rate of custom fonts in graphic design, soon every company will have its own custom typeface.
Somethings are better left for the imagination. Gone are the days of frames and boxes in strict orders. Designers are now more inclined towards open compositions. These are one of those amazing designs where we feel like we only see a part of the whole picture and there’s an entire world of the page. The elements in open composition feel loosely hitched to each other as if they are floating away. Often, these compositions are used in a very strong design concept.
Content creation for social media has become much more creative by the past year. Motion Graphics were highly demanded in 2018 for branding, and so is believed to happen this year. In today’s world, brands demand something that will engage their audience faster. Designing for social media means rethinking your approach in a unique and creative way. And of course, what you see is what you like… motion graphics play a very important role in grabbing attention and delivering the brand’s message in a very beautiful way.
