2016 Graphic Design Trends
The trends which were established in 2015 already look a bit old because all the pretty websites look mostly the same. It is predicted that the graphic design which will set new trends in 2016 will give the user a unique experience. The trends might remain the same but a great change will be seen in them.
Following are the trends which will fade in 2016 or will be used in a completely different way:
Masonry Grid Layout
The old grid layout might get a makeover and a unique way of using it might become a trend. The grid layout is being used by so many websites that it is getting very monotonous.
The illustrations might get old. The graphic designers are already out of ideas and they usually take ideas out of already made illustrations. This trend might just fade in the next year. It will be replaced by hand drawn illustrations which will ultimately leave a very lively experience for the users.
Animated graphics (cinemagraphs)
This trend might continue but in a completely different way. It will be replaced by cinemagraphs. This trend will be seen all over the websites and instead of animated graphics, people will use this because it will give the feel of a photograph and a video altogether.
This trend will mostly fade out in 2016 because it has already been converted in semi flat design. It has been used so much that now, the websites have slowly morphed it into a semi flat design which solves all the problems a flat design created.
Conclusion – As the same graphic design trends are being used widely by many companies and brands, the effect of them has gradually decreased. But, in the next year, websites will be livelier and the old graphic designs will be converted into something unique.
