"By stripping away reality and focusing on a futuristic world, your users will hyperdrive right into a land of possibilities."
Bla bla bla...
Call me jaded - but these 2018 design trends are awfully similar to 2017 design trends.
Jep and also 2016.
Thank you for the feedback - we’re sure we tried to find super interesting subjects, but it doesn’t hit the mark for everyone. And, the internet is a big place! My design trend are design systems, and it’s my big focus throughout 2018. That existed in 2017, but it’s getting better and more well defined. There’s value in repetition - it shows the genre has more inside it to explore.
Everytime I read cinemagraphs in these lists but I never see them put to good use.
The future of web design is 2000's? So tired see this type of pages with pseudo design trends.
New design trend, using the old Instagram icon.
This seems very low effort...
It was high effort by a good team :) I hope you give it another chance!
Style does not equal substance. Trends have short lifespans. Trends are for weak designers that rely on visual crutches to cover for lack of concept or talent (e.g. Intercom rebrand).
You are just offering corny photoshop tutorials I could google up if I needed for an idea.
I agree that style doesn’t equal substance. And trends by definition do have short lives.
Arguing trends are for weak designers is false, and does harm to good design. Using a trending motif in a new and fresh way helps you differentiate from others designing in the trend - and that’s our goal here. To help inspire designers to use the trends to differentiate.
Another goal is to help educate emerging designers on how to do these things. It’s kind of tough to find inspiration that’s catered, and we wanted to do that. Google wouldn’t help you find something catered.
And they may feel corny, but it’s our quirk. We want you to do serious work, but not be too serious about it. Learning should be fun, if there wasn’t quirk in the wordplay, it would be challenging to stay engaged and remember what you’ve learned.
