Design Trends Using Type

7 10 2010

We noted here last January, after AmericasMart, that words of wisdom and inspiration were not a new but continuing trend. I also believe that sentiments are becoming more detailed and typical words are being left in the dust. Now we are hearing that both the meaning of the word is important, as well as the word itself as a visual element.  The words are the latest ”key’ design element.  Check out this great article from ABC News, Typography Hits the Right Key in Home Decor and see how it may inspire your next designs. Think about word plays, new words and ways of saying things. I find that words which also complement the product in a strong way are important. Then, in a WORD, have fun designing with text and type.
