“Animation can play a huge part in making ideas and interfaces easier to understand,” says interactive designer Chris Gannon. “In a world where everyone is in a hurry and time is short, animation can convey complex ideas in a short amount of time whilst at the same time engaging and informing.”
Bruno La Versa, senior digital designer at Lightful, agrees. “Storytelling and personality is something that new and old brands are working on in order to capture users’ attention, and animations are starting to play a bigger role in this,” he says. “Animations have shown and will continue to show the brand’s strength in our digital world, giving a strong personality to the brand, making it less static and more dynamic,” says La Versa.
More adventurous colours
“Over the past year we’ve seen an increase in the use of bold colours being used across digital platforms,” notes James Bearne, creative director of Kagool. One great example is that of DesignStudio’s new branding scheme for The Premier League’s 2016/2017 season.
“A confident departure from the previous identity, the striking visual treatment didn’t stop at the website or its app; it came roaring onto the pitches with billboards, social media and more.”
Responsive Web & Logos
As Google moved to Mobile first search. Web Developers are now comfortable with Responsive Web Designs. And this comfort now can be seen in logo designs too. Thank Google.
In 2018 responsive website and logos are must for Brands to retain their presence in front of target audience irrespective of their device.
