Eight Design Trends Taking Over 2017

Modern design trends are just as much defined by what has happened as they are by what’s about to happen. Even when the best designs become mainstream, there’s a huge opportunity to take them to the next level.

 2017 has started off by slowly drifting away from the stoic design trends of minimalism, monochromatic layouts, and the omnipresent flat design. Instead, there are bright colors, bold shapes, playful gradients, and unique illustrations that bring some much needed depth and dynamics to designs that have grown all too familiar.  

This infographic from Coastal Creative, a design agency in San Diego, shows four digital design trends from previous years alongside four emerging styles we can expect to see throughout 2017. Take it away, team!
