11 WEB DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2016  
INCLUDE -
Illustrations and Sketches

Illustrations and sketches bring a fun element of whimsy to a site design. They
can work for sites of all types and aren’t just for children anymore. The illustration
style has also started to grow in popularity when it comes to some of the smaller
pieces of website design as well, such as icons and other user interface
elements. What’s nice about this trend is that illustrations make a site feel a little
more personal. Because an illustration or sketch style icon appears to be hand-
drawn, it looks and feels personal for users. That can go a long way into creating
a connection with them.

2016 LOGO DESIGN TRENDS FORECAST  

The “rules” that worked before the turn of the century no longer count today. In fact,
what has held true for the last five years no longer has the same authority. The art
and science of logo design is changing as fast as the “opportunity to engage
consumers” grows.  And again, this “opportunity,” is changing as fast as
technology develops
