Typography Trends Every Marketer Should Have on Their Radar | HubSpot

Typography Trends Every Marketer Should Have on Their Radar | HubSpot | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Just like an awesome photo or graphic can really make your design stand out, so can the right font. But the wrong font can also make your design stand out ... in a bad way. If you've ever seen a design with really out-of-date typography, you know what I mean.


But what makes a font or typography design out-of-date? What's "in" right now? Whether you're designing a one-off project or you're a seasoned designer, it's important to stay on top of typography trends so your work looks and feels current.


Check out the infographic below from ThinkDesign to learn about the typography trends in 2016, from retro and handwritten fonts to mixing and matching typefaces, to the roles transitional effects and animation could play in your marketing. (And download our free do-it-yourself design guide here for tips about how to use fonts in your content and web designs.)...

In the art of marketing and promotions, the smallest of details is key to gain a reaction from those who see it. This article helps open ourselves to more fonts, instead of using the same ones over and over. Time to be a little more creative.

Web Design: 20 Hottest 2014 Trends [+ Scenttrail Take On Each]

Web Design: 20 Hottest 2014 Trends [+ Scenttrail Take On Each] | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

2014 We Design Trends

1. Grid Layouts - Agree & Is Good!
Yes visual marketing + pinterest + mobile is making the grid ubiquitous. I created a Mondrian grid in 1999 when we launched FoundObjects.com (not gone sadly). Grids help share MORE information faster and in the same space than any other design element.

2. Image Captions - Agree and is GREAT
The area immediately under an image is HOT. Everyone looks there but few designers use captions to reinforce or explain the image. Paying more attention to keywords under images is a great idea.

3. Extended Form Elements with JQuery - Don't Know? Does anyone?
Can't comment on this trend as it is new to me and I don't program so its potential benefits are fuzzy at the moment.

4. Deeply Focused Landing Pages thanks to Mobile - Agree & Is Cool
Don't understand this trend except enough to say COOL and WANT ONE.

5. HTML5 Video Players - Agree and GLAD
Don't play your videos on YouTube only since you just make the rich get richer. Figuring out how to play videos "in your stack" is important and having your own HTML5 player is cool.

6. 3D vs. 7. Flat Design - I come down on Flat Design as the winner due to mobile.

8. Personal Portraits - Agree and Like

9. SVG Vector sweeps web as browser support escalates. Agree & Glad.

10. Fonts get cool thanks to server advance - cool and like but not a religion or anything lol.

11. Lazy Loading Animations - cool and can think of several uses.

12. Customized Image Galleries - cool and we need.

13. Mega Navigation Menus - Don't know but don't like idea, seems confusing where confusion can really hurt.

14. Expanding Search Bars - cool and will use.

15. Featured Detail List - LIKE and is cool and new to me.

16. Mobile First Design - Agree and am doing my first now with CrowdFunde.

17. HTML5 Canvas - cool and new to me.

18, Pixel Sprites and Browser Games - New to me but COOL!

19. Quick Registration via social - AGREE!

20, CSS3 Keyframe Animation - Cool, want one.

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012 | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

2012 might be the year which we reached 'peak infographic'.

You can’t have an issue or a piece of data without putting it into a picture so it’s easier for people to understand. While this has mostly resulted in a glut of ugly graphics that don’t actually do anything with data (and you’ll see some of these below), it’s still an incredibly simple way to get information to you fast. And this year, some of our most compelling content has appeared in the format.

These are some of our favorites.
