Trends come and go. However, when it comes to graphic design, trends are big and should not be ignored. If you have an outdated website or blog design, people might be hesitant to stay on your page. So, it is highly important that you consider graphic design trends, especially those coming out this year.
So we’re already into 2017, in case you haven’t noticed. That means you probably have already broken one of your New Year’s resolutions. Don’t worry, my resolution to get better sleep has already been dashed.
But one of my resolutions that I will not be breaking is to become a better graphic designer in 2017. And this is great news for you, because I will help you also become a better designer in the process.
If you have read any of my other articles, you’ll know that I am not a traditionally trained graphic designer.

And that quest continues into this new year.
