Some interesting design in here - thanks for posting. Good for inspiration.

If you ever animate a logo on a webpage, seriously, just throw away your laptop and go work at a drive-through. Also, FORGET what large corporations do, how they market and design is absolutely useless to every other size of business.
Philip VanDusen (3 days ago)
PP, I respectfully disagree. The basics of marketing, branding and business strategy are exactly the same no matter the size of your business. It's just a matter of scale in execution. I've worked with Pepsico, P&G, Chevron, Coke, and hundreds of other large brands and just as many small ones (<$200k revenue) - and I can assure you I use exactly the same tools and approaches. I do agree on the animated logo on a web page - but animated logos are increasingly being used on apps and other media applications. Thanks for the view and the comment!

Hay Philip, I really like your content very much, it's very expressive and helpful. I am writing the articles on subjet trends in graphic design and i have my little opinion about it. I think they're randomly repeatable depending of how the other branches of public communication are navigating. I think that as a graphic designer you can use it in order to put your own footprints on it in order to communicate with your target group. Could you please tell me what in your opinion causes the trends and on how the trends are created, who decides what the new trend is and how? You say that it takes years before the trend comes out. I would like to learn what or who causes that momentum of setting a particular movement a trend? Thanks
Philip VanDusen (3 days ago)
Hey Duster McClean! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment back. Keep tuning in!
Duster McClean (4 days ago)
Thanks for your kind response. I like the fact that the trends are factually looking backwards in order of providing us an inspiration to create our own vision of a certain graphic experience and expression. I definitely agree that they should not be copied but used only as a tool. Cheers!
Philip VanDusen (4 days ago)
The thing about what are generally called "trends" is that they don't really qualify as a "trend" until they show enough mass usage to be classified as such. Some people expect trends to be the newest thing - but in reality they are currently POPULAR things - whether they have been around a short or a long time. I mean look at Russian Constructivism - it's been around 100 years! . Trends are actually about looking BACKWARD not forward. What I suggest people do with trends is use them for inspiration, not for copying. Thanks for the insightful comment!

Joris Dias (11 days ago)
I believe these trends seem to be more 2018 based
Philip VanDusen (11 days ago)
Joris, In fact you are right, and that speaks to what "trends" are by definition. The thing about what are generally called "trends" is that they don't really qualify as a "trend" until they show enough mass usage to be classified as such. Some people expect trends to be a crystal ball for the future - which they are not - but in reality they are currently POPULAR things - whether they have been around a short or a long time. I mean look at Russian Constructivism - it's been around 100 years! Trends are actually about looking BACKWARD not forward...and considering I published this in Jan 2019 - it is all about what was happening in 2018.

Mark Myrick (29 days ago)
Curious, how do you identify upcoming trends? Are they things you're seeing in the marketplace, noticing in advertising and brands?
Philip VanDusen (27 days ago)
Mark, TBH trend are actually more about the "now" and the "past" that the future. The thing about what are generally called "trends" is that they don't really qualify as a "trend" until they show enough mass usage to be classified as such (the definition of: trend). Some people expect trends to be the newest thing or some sort of crystal ball - but in reality they are currently POPULAR things - whether they have been around a short or - in some cases a very long time. I mean look at Russian Constructivism - it's been around 100 years! . Recognizing trends is done by looking deeply at the marketplace and spotting patterns in usage and gathering examples of those patterns.
BananaBread (30 days ago)
What would be the difference between Dada and cut ups? Look rather the same?
BananaBread (27 days ago)
@Philip VanDusen Thank you!
Philip VanDusen (29 days ago)
BB, Cutups is more about collage and is used more in editorial illustration while "Dada" or more accurately Russian Constructivism - is more about isolated photographic elements and typography collaged *together* in a dynamic way.
Dear Philip! Congratulation! Thank you that's the fantastic video, it was perfect for me! :D :)

@Philip VanDusen Yep 100% correct keep it pure :) That's very true - Just Finished a chapter from the Book I'm reading "The Motivation Myth" by Jeff Haden - He talks about being multi-creative & it being OK & doing a few things EG: being a Musician AND Photographer, Being a Designer AND etc... etc... Gave some really good examples & ideas! Just what I needed to get a bit of clarity!!!.... But yeah man, that would make a fantastic video "Multi-Creative" :)
Philip VanDusen (1 month ago)
Being a multi-creative (hey, that's an idea for a video...) is always a challenge. Very early on in my career I relegated music to the "hobby" category - so as not to drive myself completely crazy. Happy I did. Whatever you do creatively for a living can get corrupted and sullied by the realities of business - and I just wanted to keep my music pure.
Grant R.D-music- (1 month ago)
@Philip VanDusen Awesome! You been playing for a LONG time! - Love Logic - I still use it, but more into Ableton these days! I'm a Bass Player by "Profession" love all styles too, but lots of Blues & Funk & HEAPS of Electronic based stuff... One thing I have always struggled with is working in different creative fields - Keeping the even Zen flow between my music & my photography - I find it so hard to stay loyal to one thing! & now with my interest in design growing - I'm a complete mess! LOL...
Philip VanDusen (1 month ago)
@Grant R.D-music- I play guitar (for 45 years) and I am currently studying piano. Guitar - self taught. Bands in college. I have written and recorded over 1000 songs - mostly on Logic - even before Apple owned it. Huge range of genres but mostly alt and art rock.

M Wing (2 months ago)
This is an interesting topic. Aren't trends really a mental and emotional disease that is transmitted through media outlets causing whole groups of people to dress, speak and obtain gestures that "trends" are dictating? I have watched these 'diseases' spread across the entire world for quite some time now and try not be swallowed up by them. Carried away on a river that ends up going no where. :O) Thanks for the show!

Bigb (2 months ago)
Good design is ageless, trends are here today and come back sometime in the future. Had an interview a few years ago and the interviewer was disappointed as to why I never mentioned 'parrlax scrolling' as the latest thing. I showed him some work with multi-layerd parralax scrolling, he really liked it and was impressed. He didn't however like it when I told him I did that in 1999 for a CD ROM, didn't get the job.
Philip VanDusen (2 months ago)

Skull (2 months ago)
Dada, an anti capitalist movement, being brought back by capitalists. The New York Times, a definitelly-not-conservitive publication being called conservative.
Philip VanDusen (2 months ago)
Skull, you can argue that Dada was originally brought to the public by capitalism (the gallery and organized art business elite) or by the artist him/herself as soon as Dada artist sold one of their works. And, as I stated in previous comment responses, I was referring to the design aesthetic of the NYT being conservative (which is definitely is) not to it's political leanings (which it is definitely not). But, ironic nevertheless. Thanks for the view and the comment!

Timothy Lee (2 months ago)
I was trained as a Graphic Designer and worked in the field for quite a few years. These aren't trends they're products. A trend is something like distressed type faces which gained popularity in the eighties. Most designers then, hated the idea of trashing type that is beautiful to anyone that 'gets' where those fonts were created. But that trend just got more popular. I think it is because of computer designing where any clown with an apple MacBook can call themselves "graphic designers". There is so much crap being produced right now it's sad to see. Bad designing has become the norm except for the biggest budgets. "Designers" break rules they don't even realize exist and that the public has become numb to. Graphic Design has become a catch phrase for "I really don't know what to do so I guess I'll go into 'art' ". Vids like this just compound the problem. Who are you to predict "trends for 2019". You some kind of design authority? You a cop? Designer looking at youtube to figure out what to give their clients in 2019, are in the wrong business. cheers
Timothy Lee (2 months ago)
@Philip VanDusen For someone that claims to be in the field of communications , you sure do talk shit.
Philip VanDusen (2 months ago)
133 is about right. LOL. I'll just sum it up like this with a quote from Zig Ziglar, who said "“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want out of life.”
Timothy Lee (2 months ago)
@Philip VanDusen Gee you must be at least, um, 113 year old with all those credentials. I can understand your interest in the fashion industry, who's trends are brought out like clockwork. I'm just calling them like I see am and the direction of the graphics game has gotten is PR people taking over the helm. Where there use to be well crafted ads is now a mishmash of images coming at you without regard of how they fit together, the only consideration is if they can get the attention of enough eye balls to be considered note worthy. That's not art, is dentistry. You've been in the game, you know that this business is cut throat, with more 'want to be' GD's then junky's on the street. Why on earth (if what you say is true) would you what to give these poor slob the hope of making in such a competitive field? We're talkin Youtube not Communication Arts. What gives?
Philip VanDusen (2 months ago)
As far as trend hunting credentials: I was VP of Graphic Design and Trend at Old Navy for 11 years, VP of Design at Pepsico, Executive Creative Director at Landor Associates collecting trend for P&G, Merck, GE, and others and have been a trend gatherer for Fortune 100 clients for over 25 years in the industry. When I was in the fashion industry for 15 years and travelled the globe shopping for trend 3x a year, Tokyo, London, Milan, Berlin etc. Trend hunting was my job. I’ve worked with major trend houses like WGSN, Stylus, JWT, Pantone. The one thing I’ve learned is that trends are never limited to specific periods of time and are very fluid in how they appear. Trends are revisited, altered, revised - new perspectives are added - they disappear and then they come back over and over (particularly in the fashion industry) (Russian Constructivism - 100 years old - never really goes away). Some trends take a few years to grab hold and become recognizable as popular. So people like you, who may see and recognize trends early - may be mentally registering them way before other people so they may seem older to you - but not others. Too many folks who have no formal training in art/design history they are totally new. I can never assume the knowledge base of my audience. Anyway I hope you were somehow inspired.

I am more from the digital space and I have some concepts that might be of value to you.

Shawn, if you want to email me links through the contact form on my website, feel free. If I have a chance to take a look, I will. But I can't promise anything unless you become a coaching client - which is always an option if you need help in your career. Thanks for asking so thoughtfully!

Interesting! Moving an iconic symbol is a good movement? After all the changes moving from analogue to digital, an everchanging logo is a good choice? Have Playbill and Comic sans as your friends now? To me a long term binding might be a better choice! But hey long term isn't existing yet! Native people where way better at this. I'm calling in Europeans vs Americans, Asians vs Europeans, Black (never saw that shade) vs white and so on! Get my mind spinning! Best regards, Pat

It IS a trend though - and is going to be really important - it's essentially going to be as big as the alcohol industry, so designers can't ignore it. But, I get it. I appreciate the comment!

@Philip VanDusen Thank you!

I was trained as a Painter and have an MFA. Never trained in design. My advice is to learn the apps and play around. Maybe take an intro Illustrator course at a community college or continuing ed program. Low cost, low time investment and you'll be dipping you toe in the water to see if you like it. You'll know if it lights your fire soon enough.

The Controlled Substances Act is still in full Supreme clause law. In other words. Marijuana is still very illegal. Chances are you will be arrested with a felony charge by federal agents. Be very clear. These marijuana states are breaking the law.
Philip VanDusen (2 months ago)
k Bar, I am not advocating people use it, to be clear. But it is clearly a business opportunity for people to do branding and design work in this newly formed industry. My audience is international, so for my Canadian viewers, engaging in the industry is completely legal as it is fully legal in Canada, as it undoubtedly will be in the United States eventually.

When you present a shot with examples, you should circle them in the motion of your comment so it would be easier to navigate an image with you speaking. :)

Having worked in design at a major footwear company who's HQ is in Beaverton, I was a little skeptical of a youtube video on design trends when watching the 2018 report.- I was wrong. Actually, most of his predictions were spot on. Especially the "glitch" trend. In my opinion that seemed so niche and specific I did not see how it could be a real trend. Then all year I saw so many brands adopt the glitch style across advertising and social media. He totally called it. Excellent, which is why I came back this year to see what was in the report. Very concise and well edited. Great job including historical references for each style/trend too. Refreshing, because sometimes when you work in a corporation or agency- everyone sees the same trend reports and has the same WGSN subscriptions, which usually causes any seasonal design presentations to all look the same across the entire organization. it is awesome that this channel is available as another resource for professional designers.

@l. p. Thanks l.p. - I certainly miss the all expenses paid trend trips to Tokyo, Berlin, London, Milan...those there the salad days, bro. (assuming you are male...;-P)
l. p. (2 months ago)
Yeah, I still rub shoulders over there sometimes. I left the company to do my own thing in the world of outdoor and designer products. Admittedly, I had it much better in terms of going on design travel and having some ability to influence product than current designers do under the Design Org. or "Design Regime" as I hear it called. I will be sure to let comrades behind the berm and designers I know in PDX about the channel. Thanks for making these inspiring and informative videos.
Philip VanDusen (2 months ago)
As a 10 year WGSN veteran I know what you're saying. Thanks so much for your review and for the detail of your comment. That means a lot to me and keeps me fueled to keep going. Hey, could you do me a solid and share my video on social media or in your organization in some way? I'm always looking to grow my subscribers and it sounds like you have a good professional network - and are at a level in the organization that matters...;-)

The New York Slimes is not conservative. Pedantic, I know.

Yes, pedantic. I was speaking of being aesthetically conservative in design style, not politically. I could have been a little more clear.

Mosi Armstrong (3 months ago)
​@Philip VanDusen I appreciate that! I'm positioning myself to be a creative director because I think I'm better with that kind of role, instead of being in the trenches with the other warriors. I prefer working behind the scenes and coordinating, managing budgets, and solving problems. I think my design and illustration experience has shown me that I rather design and illustrate as a hobby more than anything else. Great channel by the way; some of the best and well-presented information I've ever seen gathered together on working in the creative industry.

Mosi! Do it - come back! The world needs more jaded/client war-scarred designers!

But those are the same trends as in 17` and 18` nothing new there.....?
Philip VanDusen (3 months ago)
Maria, I disagree. If you look at my 2018 video you will see there is a lot of new stuff - though as you know many trends are cyclical - and many are also based in historical movements and carry aspects of past aesthetics.
Mike Orrey (3 months ago)
What I enjoyed here is the fact that one kinda needs to have been around as an older, serious designer/marketeer to really recognise the trends and how some of them are not new but revived....like fashion. Love it and it is very exciting. thank you.

Love this. As a pro designer of 20+ years now, its brilliant seeing these ‘trends’ again. Came across all of these when studying and starting out and I love they have evolved. For references see: Bahaus Design Early Neville Brody Dave Carson Designers Republic
Philip VanDusen (3 months ago)
Anil, so true. Some people expect trends to be the newest thing - but in reality they are currently POPULAR things - whether they have been around a short or a long time. I mean look at Russian Constructivism - it's been around 100 years! . Trends are actually about looking BACKWARD not forward. Thanks for the insightful comment.
multiscan8 (3 months ago)
This is the first video I've seen of yours, and while I enjoyed the video, I think it is mis-titled. Except for #12 Moving Mail, these trends have been going on for a years, so they are certainly not the "Graphic Design Trends for 2019". As for "Mary Jane" , it may be a product or client trend, but the examples shown didn't exemplify any kind of new "design trend". This is a constructive comment. I watched it with expectations of learning something new. I didn't. I found myself recounting the numerous time in previous years I saw the exampled trends, so came away with enjoying some nice examples of design, and the feeling you were not really current and maybe I should spend my time elsewhere.
Philip VanDusen (3 months ago)
I was in the fashion industry for 15 years and travelled the globe shopping for trend 3x a year, Tokyo, London, Milan, Berlin etc as a VP of Design and Trend. Trend hunting was my job. I’ve worked with major trend houses like WGSN, Stylus, JWT, Pantone. The one thing I’ve learned is that trends are never limited to specific periods of time and are very fluid in how they appear. Trends are revisited, altered, revised - new perspectives are added - they disappear and then they come back over and over (particularly in the fashion industry) (Russian Constructivism - 100 years old - never really goes away). Some trends take a few years to grab hold and become recognizable as popular. So people like you, who may see and recognize trends early - may be mentally registering them way before other people so they may seem older to you - but not others. Too many folks who have no formal training in art/design history they are totally new. I can never assume the knowledge base of my audience. Anyway I hope you were somehow inspired.

Hey Philip, my name is Kent. I’ve been in the sign biz since 77 and love seeing your video on trends! I have a tendency to go “back to the 80’s” in sign design or logo design. (Not that I stick to that or limited to). I get to use a bit of what you have shown us here but in sign design. I use Core Draw very well and I can get around in Photoshop a bit but Corel is more of a “One stop Design shop” where Photoshop needs Adobe for cutlines. I’m looking forward to learning more from you in the future, thanks for the vid!

You do it with "sheen" or "gloss" in the ink. The T material is flat and the ink is shiney.
