Technology is moving design forward at an incredible pace — blink, and you’ll miss it. From what we communicate to how we communicate it, design enables us to shape and convey meaning in and around the existing brand messages.
Our iStock trend experts have been researching the trends that will help your designs rise about the rest in 2015, here is the top 8 that will feature throughout the next year.
Filmmakers got the memo years ago. Now the wide format is all the design rage. New screen sizes are driving new image proportions. For designers, it means working with smaller spaces, which also means more creativity — but you’re a pro at that.
Technology’s moving so fast, we sometimes get nostalgic for the old days. Images are feeling the tug, harkening back to the look of rich film and monochromatic color. Think bright whites and strong blacks, a modern take on Kodak® Porta color negative film.
The love affair with our point of view isn’t over. Thanks to technology, it’s just getting more intimate. Now we take photos from ski masks, surfboards and the collars of our four-legged friends. The visual stories of 2015 bring us unexpected perspectives, up close and personal.
Bring on pixels you can taste, touch, and smell — never mind the screen. 2015 is all about embracing experience in vivid, immersive imagery. Try macro images that heighten awareness, creating a sensory wonderland.
Pause. Inanimate objects are taking over the small screen. And not in any ordinary way. 2015 is about the artistry of still life — an interesting angle, the exquisite arrangement, even capturing the intricate handmade object — resulting in big, dynamic images for small screens.
