Flat and minimalism dominated the design trends last year. From logos and websites to architecture and UI, the flat style is everywhere. Will the design trend this 2014 be on the same track? Shutterstock, the popular online resource of commercial digital imagery, has released their annual global design trends infographic. Based on the data from over 350 million all-time image downloads, the infographic revealed the recent and emerging visual design trends across the globe.
This year’s infographic is outlined as follows:
“The increasing demand for imagery is leading to new and innovative content types,” said Shutterstock VP Content Scott Braut. “Our data reveals how photographers, illustrators, designers and videographers are influencing design trends on a local and global scale.”
“Businesses and storytellers are using images to communicate in more ways and across more channels than ever before,” added VP Global Communications Meagan Kirkpatrick. “From bright geometric patterns in Brazil to deconstructed classics in France, Shutterstock is seeing more diversity in visual communication trends than ever before.”
