Earlier this week I talked shared a link about fashion trends for 2016 and I thought I’d follow it up with a link on design trends for the next year.
Design in and off it self, is simply the strategy, drawing and/or agreed upon norms of an object or plan. It requires the designer to take into consideration things like, function, aesthetics and cost. And it’s influence is seen in almost every aspect of our lives.
For those in the artisan community, design is often the key to success of a product and sometimes it takes a while before one gets the design right, for the right audience. Azure magazine’s Design Trends for 2016 is another great resource to keep on top on trends in the field.
If you’re curious to know more about design as it relates to crafts and fine art, check out the Bauhaus Movement, which has had a major influence on modern art and graphic design.
