Captivating Design Trends of 2017

Captivating Design Trends of 2017


2017 is well underway, we have made it through the chilly temperatures of the British winter and slowly but surely getting closer to summery sunshine. (Let’s be realistic, it’s England.) We have discussed the importance of colour when advertising, but what use is colour without a cracking design to go with it!? Here are five elements of successful design for 2017.

We Can’t Get Enough of Colour

We have already devoted a post to colour, but we cannot leave out the impact on design it will have in 2017! The past few years has seen the popularity of sleek minimalist design using black and white, portraying clarity and elegance. This once powerful visual technique is almost exhausted by the multitude of brands imitating the trend. I believe contrasting colour combined with striking bold design will dominate the designs we see on a day-to-day basis.


The time we take to digest information is decreasing; statistically our attention span has dropped from twelve seconds to eight since 2000! A successful minimalist design utilises negative space, reducing unnecessary visual complexity to keep from overwhelming the viewer with unnecessary material. A high contrast design creates readable, engaging and efficient content. Make the message of your brand clear by reducing superfluous visual elements.

Solid Typography

A picture paints a thousand words, perhaps because we don’t have the attention span to read those words!?Contrasting colour combined with bold striking typography captures the interest of your audience whilst communicating your message. Shout your key message with the bold use of colour, design, and striking typography.

Bespoke Imagery

In a world of 7.5 billion humans, it is becoming increasingly difficult to be unique. The need for original images is of upmost importance to maintain authenticity. If relevant to your brand, introduce hand-drawn graphics to your design to personalise and humanise your company. Stop using stock images found on google, add originality to your brand by using an original image!

Motion Graphics

With more time and money being invested in digital advertising, moving graphics are perfect for attracting attention to your brand. Motion design is re-shaping the way we indulge in information. Visually, movement is how we characterise personality. Bringing your content to life utilises the technology we have in our hands, it demands attention from a wide audience and will show how modern your brand is!


In the coming months, we will see the increase of bold colours being used in design. We will continue to see captivating designs portrayed in a minimalist format. The use of animation and GIFs will dominate our news feed and alter the way we perceive information. Think about how you can apply these trends to your branding to ensure a visually successful 2017!

To cut to the chase and paraphrase to suit the modern attention span –
Shout your key message with the bold use of colour, design and striking typography.
Use contrasts and bespoke imagery to demand attention for your brand and to give it personality.
Don’t overdo it!
