At the beginning of each year, each industry predicts the trends that will impact the months to come. Here are some key graphic design trends that are sure to take 2017 by storm.

Graphic design 

Modern retro

Modern retro is a mix between modern shapes and colours and fonts with a retro vibe. It makes for quite a unique blend! This trend is already being used on packaging, logos and website designs. Just take a look at the new logos of Mike’s and La Cage restaurants, or Laiterie Chalifour’s packaging. You’re sure to see a lot more of modern retro in 2017.

Minimalism

A trend that dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, minimalism is back and bigger than ever before. Many brands use minimalism to convey a simple, airy and sleek look. Minimalism has been on trend for a few years now and is likely to continue for a long time to come.

Web design 

Custom fonts 

Today’s designers have a wealth of different fonts to choose from. However, some key fonts are typically used for the web. Bold, custom fonts are all the rage now as they provide even more options for businesses looking to stand out. If you’re looking to take the plunge and use a custom font, you’ll definitely create a unique look for your website. However, just be sure that it is legible. 

Ambiance videos

Ambiance videos will indeed continue to dominate in 2017. We’re seeing more and more videos used on websites to capture visitors’ attention. The videos are often displayed as banners with a content overlay. Just take a look at our website to see how we leveraged this trend.

Revamp your website’s image this year with these trends. Remember, some trends are timeless, which allow you to remain trendy, without becoming part of a short-lived fad.
