2018 is the year we finally take risks, in life and in graphic design.
Because that’s the only way your design is going to stand out this year.
It’s a well-known fact that there are millions of things fighting for your audience’s very limited time right now.
Bitcoin. Politics. Cats. Food.
All of these things are going to be out in the world trying to get your audience’s attention.
That means that the things you did to differentiate yourself from the pack in the past aren’t going to work this year.
Instead, you’re going to have to take risks when it comes to design.
Riskier concepts. Riskier color schemes. Riskier GIFs, even. Just to name a few things.
That means no more boring stock photos, minimalist graphics or half-hearted stock photos.
None of those things will grab someone’s attention and pull them away from the cat video they are watching.
That’s why it’s important that you stay on top of this year’s graphic design trends.
