Big images with colour overlay

Big images with colour overlay | Design & Media | Scoop.it

We reached out to over 50 designers to ask what design trends they expect we'll see gain traction during 2015.

Erica Dale's insight:

Big images are here to stay, but now they’re getting color overlays — good example I saw today: https://mirrorx.com/ The overlays help them match with the color scheme of the website as well as making sure elements on top pop and don’t get overwhelmed by the photo background.

CARDS. 50+ Designers Share Their Top 3 Design Trends For 2015

We reached out to over 50 designers to ask what design trends they expect we'll see gain traction during 2015.
Erica Dale's insight:

Cards are small contained pieces of information, visually delimited by their card like appearance: A border around or a drop shadow, often with a white background on a grayish site background. They hit right in the spot of users wanting small information bites before digging through the real – possibly lengthly – content.

I understand them as an entry point. After a click/touch the user gets more information about the displayed content.

Twitter uses them, Google (Google now), Facebook – just to name some. What makes them so great for designers is that they are universally applicable: On mobile show one column with separate cards under each other, show multiple columns on desktop.

They minify general design problems into smaller easy to handle pieces. Definitely a trend for 2015!
