What Are the Top Design Trends
Digital Information World created an info-graphic listing 8 of the top design trends for 2015. In this article, we will focus on one of these trends:
Utilizing over-sized images in your graphic designs both online and with large format digital printing, not only grabs the attention of consumers, but also helps to tell your company story.
“In 2014, we saw large, high quality images make their way into more designs. Thanks to free unique stock image sites, as well as faster broadband speeds, the images got high quality and even more unique. Humans are visual creatures and in 2015 we’ll see bigger and better images,” Irfan Ahmad, Digital Information World.
Where Do You Find the Images?
There are a number of sites available for stock images or royalty free images:
- Flickr.com: look in the Commons area for photos that are available for free. Always make sure you give attribution to the photographer.
- Istockphotos.com has thousands of images for sale, individually as well as grouped by topic.
- 123rf.com is another site with stock images for sale and is less expensive than most of the stock photo sites online.
- Google Images: avoid at all costs. Using these images can result in copyright infringement down the line.
