I’ll present you 7 main typography tendencies for 2018.
Here we go!
As sans-serif typefaces introduce modern and contemporary style, serif typefaces bring us back to classic and nobility. Of course, all kinds of variations and even serif and sans-serif mixes are possible. Also, in 2018 we are going to see how the designers combine the serif typefaces with our next trend – retro stylization.
Retro and Vintage
It seems to be that retro never goes out of style. As vintage photographs and filters have become very common and loved by social media users, we see how retro style also broadening its effect to typography. Look back to the 70’s – 90’s. You may find your muse in those times.
Big Bold letters
Minimalism is to be quite an in time style. The web and, I guess, everything, is riddled with bright images, catching photos and stuff. And all efforts are aimed at attracting our attention, showing the uniqueness of brand or whatever. So minimalistic design will please every tired eye and big letters in paragraphs, enhanced with bold typefaces, will emphasize the very idea of what you want to say.
Making a picture out of the text, what can be more demonstrative? This is our next trend in 2018. But not only this. Any extraordinary text deposition or manipulations with the letters – and you are in trend.
Leading typographers believe that colorful fonts will crowd out the black ones in 2018. Definitely, this will give the designers even more opportunities to express and add an extra uniqueness to their brands’ design.
Handwritten text is still in trend. Since the past 2017 “handwriting” has segued to 2018. Holding on top positions it will delight us even more. This trend is bringing more color into our life this year. How? Now there’s a tendency to make a text not only as written by hand, but also as painted with a paintbrush by watercolors!
Actually, I decided to combine a few design tendencies into one point, because they all are about letters and background. So what are we going to see in 2018? Transparent typefaces on a bright and creative background. The gradient will also hit the spot this year, as well as multiple image background.
