Web and Graphic Design Trends 2014 – Infographic via istock (Midyear Check)

Web and Graphic Design Trends 2014 – Infographic via istock (Midyear Check) | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

This is the most shared, visited and viewed post on Design Revolution. December is always HOT for trend predictions.  Interesting to look over December's predictions to see if they are coming true:

1 & 2 Diverse Women & Hands Dirty Dads
Gladly we are seeing both of these trends. Loved Dove's What Dad's Really Do campaign

3. Beards
Yes beards on on the rise thanks to sports stars and Hollywood.

4. Lens Flare
We are seeing LESS stock art (thankfully) and more "real" photos and videos. Marketers are starting to realize sharing warts and all helps create authenticity and a sense of immediacy.

5. Human as Robot
Not sure this trend is happening any more or less than it already was.

6. Cameras we wear
I think Google Glass is sucking up much of this "wearable" trend at the moment, but  GoPro hasn't done badly (lol).

7. Multi-racial Models (was STRONG going into the year, stronger now).

8. World Cup
Was huge and America STILL doesn't get soccer :).

9. Witches and bye bye vampires (end of True Blood signals this trend is right on and about time).

10. Handcrafted Vectors
This is another "break down the perfection" trend and seeing it too (like the lens flare or nonperfect but more real photo).

11. Instagrammy FOODies - this is BLOWING UP almost as fast as "selfies".

12. Experiences over Things = Team Curagami (http://www.curagami.com ) is placing a HUGE bet on this one as we see the future of ecommerce being about the quality of interactions instead of their quantity.

13. Creative Collaboration - another one team Curagmai is betting on HUGE and we are seeing demand grow. Think about your life. I like to say I don't "passively consume anything" anymore. If I can't bend, shape and spin the content I go somewhere else. If the content isn't fascinating, cool and fun I go somewhere else. Curagami makes this "ambassador" interaction easy so your customers can advocate and share your brand.

TRIBES are the key going forward.

I would say IStock got way more RIGHT than wrong with their December design predictions. What do you think?

The best and worst brands on Instagram

The best and worst brands on Instagram | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

About 40 percent of top brands use Instagram. But that doesn't mean they use it well. Check out these examples of the best uses (and abuses) of this popular visual platform.

 

With the launch of social networks like Instagram and Pinterest -- and, of course, Facebook's dive into Timeline -- social is transforming into a visual world. It's becoming increasingly important to show instead of tell. Show your audience that cheeseburger that's on special this week. Show your fans that picture of your gorgeous car driving off into the sunset.

 

About 40 percent of top brands use Instagram. But that doesn't mean they use it well. Some brands are using Instagram as a way to reach specific demographics within their audiences, to showcase their creative sides, or to humanize their brands. Others are using it without moderation or maintenance, to cross-promote or advertise their content from platform to platform, or in an entirely unengaging way.

 

Let's take a look at some of the best and the worst brands on Instagram. Consider this your checklist of what to do -- and what not to do -- on the platform.
