From the classic to the high tech to the aesthetically minimal to the big and bright, here is some of what is gonna be big in commercial graphics design in 2017.

Flat 2.0

A flat design uses subtleties in depth, coloration, and motion to make a slim and sleek highly visible interface that is simple to use and understand. It makes web pages load quickly. It is also highly versatile and easy to mix with more intricate and complex design.

Bold and Whimsical Typography

New tools make the creation of fonts far easier than it was before. This makes creating custom dramatic typography a snap. The font Serif is also making a comeback as screens gain higher and higher resolutions. Handwritten fonts also add a practical whimsical touch.

The New Retro

Retro styles are largely inspired by the 80s and 90s. These include inspirations such as classic arcade games. Bold colors, pixel art, and eye-catching whimsical geometric patterns are excellent accents to this fun font.


Motion makes photos and illustrations sparkle with life. This is accomplished with 2D animation and cinemagraphics. Even a small amount of movement can be enough to jazz up any design with being distracting from your brand.


Minimalism is all over the design world, but how does it apply to commercial graphics design? Well, it plays into flat design and a modern use of negative space for the maximum impact. It often makes use of subtle gradients, kinetic logos, and crisp mono line styles.
