Futurism, retro futurism, maximalism, brutalism, Neo Brutalism, skeuomorphism, Neumorphism, corporate Memphis, 3D shapes, type-heavy layouts, parallax galore, grid obsessed, pill shape buttons, mirror buttons, flat buttons, circles and quircles, websites that now look like Linear but before used looked like Stripe.
Designers live in a tornado of ever changing trends and design references. However trends come as fast as they go and can make your design decisions feel quickly dated and heavily influenced.
Join me in this talk as we look beyond design trends and focus on the trends that shape design.
This is not a design talk, but it certainly is a talk for designers.
