The last article I posted was about what I believe is a new trend in web design. It's a style that has been around for quite a long time and actually has a lot of influence from Wolfgang Weingart work and many other designers that broke with formal grid and started deconstructing the design. For this post I want to share some projects I found on Pinterest that embody a bit of that style.
Sharing knowledge is an amazing way to equip the world with the tools to evolve. Many designers use free information they find around the web to learn how to design, code, paint, etc. Thankfully, today there are plenty people out there willing to share their knowledge with everyone, like the folks at UXPin. They write and share e-books about design and its processes, really worth checking out and not to be underestimated. Here is a brief selection of their books that you should really read, going from UX Design to Design trends.
We keep going through our weekly journey checking out great logos! We're thinking ahead and we want to find new topics, good ones, to share with you guys. Last week we featured the work of Almosh82, and today we're featuring logos with contour trend! LogoLounge, probably the most notorious publishing about logo design, has listed Contours as one of 2015 trends, so here are some logos that I think are inside this trend.
Long Shadow seems to be the hottest trend lately, it's everywhere specially if you look through design communities like dribbble, and behance. On this post I will show a few samples of long shadow, will also have some freebies and show you how to create your very own long shadow. It seems like this effect came around to reinforce the "flat" design that everyone has been seeing, it's the wave of trends and we want you in the loop. It's most common on icon design and small illustrations as you will see on this post.
One of the new trends in terms of digital design, especially interface design, is the return of simple, flat and typographical design. We can say that Microsoft might have started that back in 2007 when they launched the Zune with its beautiful typographic based interface. Despite the failure of the product, that UI was improved and applied to the Windows Phone and Windows 8 interface design.
