Top 8 Typography Trends of 2017

SOURCE

Design trends are influenced by media, technology, the fashion industry and, lately usability. A trend emerges slowly, gradually, making its way into all design branches, and then disappears in exactly the same way. Basically a design trend’s life is no longer than one or two years. Design in 2017 will continue the trends that materialized in 2016 while adding some new influences, but the feeling is well known and familiar and you may have seen it in the past  couple of years. The main influencer remains Google’s Material Design, that suffers a few changes.

1. Big, bold & beautiful typography

Typography is maybe the most important part in creating an outstanding design. This year typography will be bold and big with statement titles.

3. Visual hierarchy

Typography hierarchy is really important in all design fields. Size and weight of the font can easily indicate which words or letters are the most important, so keep in mind this aspect when you create your text. You also have to remember that you can achieve a great visual hierarchy through the position and color of the text.

4. Tiny Typography

Super small text is usually surrounded by negative space, but you can create a contrast between colors or images to make it more visible. You can also use animations to help it stand out.
