A huge shift in design has being happening. Designers are attempting to recover some of the old methods and tools that haven’t been used since the computer boom. No more glossy and shiny gradients; instead of that, handwritten notes, doodles, watercolors and collages have been explored. As it’s hard to create handmade designs, they are being recreated digitally with handwritten fonts, watercolor and doodle brushes, and digital collages. We hope that this trend inspired by the old methods and styles (like vintage and retro) stays a little longer, getting more and more creative. Let’s remember some aspects of this big trend from 2008.
