Some days you come across information that is so great it is worth sharing. Well, instead of forwarding this blog to a few of my friends, I have decided to share it with everyone!
5 Formerly Cool Design Trends by Design Shack.
Stop Now! No longer Use the Graphic Design Tricks:
- Bevel and Emboss – it is so easy and you know you always want to – just say no!
- Web 2.0 Gloss – the button that looks like it actually a 3D button coming off of the screen – I’ll admit, I have spent hours to get that gloss just right.
- Lots of Cursive Text – I love a good cursive text, but not in graphic design – unless it is a simple application, of course.
- The Burst – this is what we all used to do years ago when we made posters selling lemonade. Your career has come a long way, shouldn’t your design?
- Dramatic Drop Shadow – I am so guilty of using this one. What will make this word POP? Oh – I know, a drop shadow. I’m will challenge myself to be a little more creative.
