Top 5 graphic design trends for 2018


Graphic design like art, fashion and music, is in a constant state of flux. Ideas come, are questioned, accepted, overused and forgotten. All of which means that in order to keep your site looking contemporary and on trend, you need to be aware of the vernacular. Which basically means, keeping up to date with current trends.


With this in mind, here are five top trends to look out for in 2018.


Bright colours


Bright is back in 2018. The base and details of your design scheme should use bold and attractive colours to get viewers attention. This represents a move away from the minimalism and black colours of 2016 and 2017.




Again a reaction to the minimalism and plain designs of the last couple of years, 2018 will be all about accent and emphasis on complex design. Think fascinating and eye catching graphic images overflowing with small details that hold the viewer’s attention.


Sketches and hand drawn


Going hand in hand with the last trend, sketches and hand drawn images will also be big. This will give your site a personal touch, following the general move away from stock images and faceless corporate photos. Both 3D and flat images will be popular, and both can have a real impact on your site.


Crossing styles


Up until now, having a single and consistent design theme has always been the way to go but 2018 will see a move away from this single idea approach. Crossing styles will see the combination of some or all of the above, as well as numerous other design touches. Think creatively and try and find contrasts that work to build a new identity.


Double exposure


Used in both typography and images, the overlapping of text or images can create a visually stunning appearance. It’s been a common trend in film and cinematic poster design for some time and is now making the transition to graphic design online.
