Making sure your print designs are fresh, modern, and up to date is an important part of your design job. Things that were stylish or trendy last year, or even a matter of months ago, might not necessarily still be trendy and modern right now. So as a designer you need to make sure that you’re always up to date with the latest trends, so you can keep your printed designs in the running with the other masses of printed materials being marketed.
The best way to keep up to date with these latest trends is to look at awesome examples of modern print designs and see what they all have in common – if these designs are all recent ones, then the chances are that the similarities you see in the designs are the current design trends.
To help you start spotting the latest design trends for yourself, I’ve listed a whole bunch of fantastic examples for you below. As you go through this list, make notes about what it is from each design that draws your attention to it – what first grabs your attention, and then what makes you want to keep reading? The more points like this that you can identify about the designs, the more fuel you will have for your own design project.
Hopefully that’s given you some inspiration on the design front. When you’ve finished designing your materials, you will probably be looking for somewhere to have them printed. Whatever you need printed, be it booklets ,flyers, leaflets, brochures, business cards, postcards, or any other type of material, you can probably find it on NextDayFlyers website. They are one of the world’s top printing companies, and always my first choice for all of my printing needs. I’ve printed my business cards with them year after year and never had any trouble, no delays, and never any poor quality prints.
NDF truly offer an exceptional service, and still manage to offer it at a price as low as their competition. If you need anything printed then NDF come highly recommended from me. Use them once and I guarantee you that you’ll be so happy with them that you will use them time and time again.
Anyway, I hope this post has given you some good ideas for keeping your print designs fresh throughout 2013, and hopefully you’ve picked up a great resource in the form of NextDayFlyers here too!
