Now what?!
Typographers exhale. Two most obvious changes in typographic tendencies are:

 

 

All caps for headlines.
Serif type replaces sans serif type.

 

 


Google sans serif

Remember this recent blunder?

 

 

Googel serif

Returning tendencies in design

Authorative replaces beating around the bush. Most modern tendencies you contemporary media designers are wishing for or take for granted are being confirmed though. “Simplicity”, “directness”, “readability” and “ease of use”.

We will see if and how “responsive”, “accessible” or “transparent” will keep up. Responsive OS should have top priority with any business minded person. By all means.

That said the design tendencies closely resemble or even match those of start-ups.

 

 

European designers knock it out and finally follow or supersede international standards

The presidency of Donald Trump may have the ring of a wake up call for European designers.
Listen to what the people want from you as a designer and disregard some of what award shows, trade magazines and experts want you to believe.
