Our friends from InVision have released their 2021 Product Design Trends Report that you can download now. It's the perfect time right before the holidays to start diving into their report during the upcoming time off. We are seeing more trends getting published lately, what's interesting about this one. It's the actual work on the behind-the-scenes, (as I quote) they have surveyed hundreds of readers and consulted experts, analysts, and those engaged in the most innovative, multidisciplinary work on the ground. In this report, you will find topics on 'design systems, how design holds its seat to the table, the rise of generalists, the impact of remote work because of the pandemic, and more. I am personally digging the addition of data & statistics, it gives you a good projection on how you should project yourself within your team, organization, and even on your side-projects. Give it a look!
In their words
There will be a little bit more of a leveling out just based on the fact that people are living, breathing, and working digitally, but I think that there’s still going to be a pretty big difference between those who think of themselves as product companies building something for users to leverage to make their lives better, versus companies that have a different motivation behind the scenes. — MEGAN MAN VP of product design at Squarespace
