Same with this site being biased words Sketch. They are preaching to digital product people only.
DN is now a bunch of serious valley bubble product design fuccbois. We all need to leave DN and go back to QBN/Newstoday where it was fun to not be so serious.
This is too next level for a lot of people on DN.
True, as designers we need to remove our ego and emotional connection to the work. This is a service industry and at the end of the day we are in service to the client.
AKA the "try-hard product designer wants to become an edgy gfxdesignr" starter pack.
It was him. Confirmed via his instagram. ;-)
I really hope that illustration is by Geoff McFetridge (a local Californian artist/illustrator). His stuff has been known to get ripped off.
God the acting in the video is so garbage lol.
Because it's trash. This is why everything looks the same and what design has become. A place for marketers to post roundup lists of trends that under experienced impressional designers will see and pick and choose in order to feel 'on trend'. This article does not consider concept driven design and only covers surface level aesthetics. Untrained designers will see this work then just go emulate without regard for idea or strategy, and come out with books that will look dated in a year.
Warning to designers who follow trend lists like this: Design is not a flavor of the month game. If you get inspiration from trend lists like this you are already too late. Ask yourself should you really use that gradient to make it more 'modern' feeling, or will you just be following the trend and have the design look like everyone else's and not stand out. Again, if you do work that is only an aesthetic driven, your work will look stale very quickly. Always remember to design with an idea first and let that drive the style of your project.
