Design Trends I LOVE for 2019


It’s the week of LOVE y’all! Instead of sharing all the mushy, gushy about my handsome husband or super kiddos, I decided to share some of the cool trends coming in 2019 that I’m very much in LOVE with. Of course, there are several blogs and design magazines out there who call for all kinds of crazy trends, but these are my fave…

Vivid Colors

Who doesn’t love beautiful color?! The trend for vibrant color schemes will continue through 2019 and I’m not mad about it. These stunning color combinations and gradients help company ads pop and make brands unique.

Metallic Effect

To keep things classic this year, gold will rule the ads and packaging designs. Metal elements (think gold, silver, rose gold and rainbow metal effects) will help take design compositions to the luxury standard. Be on the watch for beautiful metallic effects on black and white backgrounds as well as golden foil on colorful package designs. (Ahem. We are ahead of the trend… check out our business cards.)

Bold Typography

You can’t have design trends without a nod to the typography favorites for the coming year. This year watch for strong, bold fonts that are actively involved in the overall design composition. Designers will utilize more of the typography to create the design rather than just share information. Watch for different weights and directions of content as the ads begin to roll out this year.

Living Coral: The 2019 Color of the Year

This year, Living Coral will be found in all things design. According to Pantone, Living Coral is “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.”

Although, they are calling it “coral”, we think it is pretty peachy.

What do you think about the design trends of 2019? Which one are you most looking forward to seeing play out?
