2018 Typographic trends you must follow to be a professional graphics designer

As graphics designer it is our duty to sit down every now and then to analyze the typography trends popping up in the market. It is a very dynamic industry and designs are always changing their face as to what people want to see and what they do not. A very good thing about graphic designer course is that they teach to keep innovating.

Going through the content formats, and tools that have become prominent during the second half of the year can help us make solid predictions about what will be trending in the upcoming year. Here I have jotted down a couple of trends which you might want to take a look at.

Galactic Effects

The space is the aesthetics now. The blue based and purple effects are a very catchy backdrop to work with. They do not just represent stars and planets but deeper concepts like curiosity and urge to learn and discovery. This is a very good template for interior and web designing too.

Glitch Effects

Digital Glitch Text Effect

If you are a social media junkie (which by the way you should be if you need to stay updated with trends) then I do not need to explain you what glitch means. Just Google it and you will find innumerable examples of it. Leaving the land of horror movies this effect has taken over the graphics designing world as well.

Double Exposure

Serif Fonts

Mostly seen in 1970s and 1980s; serif fonts are back in business baby! Designers believe that perky designs will be ruling the taglines and e-commerce websites very soon. Keep an eye upon this one. Get the lead when before it starts trending.

Text on videos

Another hip trend of 2018 has been using large and partially translucent fonts on the videos. These texts make the videos more appealing for people to watch. Video makers and professional YouTubers seem to be making very good use of these days. The best way is to experiment well upon these.
