What next?

The past few years have had some interesting design trends. In 2010 Skeuomorphic Design became mainstream – Skeuomorphic design is where you design UI elements to look like physical objects, often including textures.
Then in 2013 there was a complete design change, textures, shadows and gloss became a thing of the past as flat design became a more popular choice for designers.

So this got us thinking what’s next?

We thought of all kinds of possible and we believe that polygonal/geometric design is the future. So what is geometric / polygonal design, we it’s all about shapes (often triangles), these then come together to create a pattern or an object. This design method is very effective and rarely used in, so we believe it’s only a matter of time before people start to utilize it.

Why polygonal design?

Anything that exceeds the limits of common standards, always grabs public attention. Polygon graphic design can be considered a singular reply to the recent tendency of perfecting design. Polygonal design doesn’t copy reality; it does however represent it in an abstract way, almost as if you’re looking at the world through shattered shard of glass.
