Graphic design has evolved and evolved over the years, often redefining the definition of form and function while doing so. But why has unlimited graphic design changed so much in the last decade? Thanks to the rapidly growing technology used to create, display, and even print photographs and art, we see designers push - and borders - in what we describe as a vivid design. We will explore the impact of technology on clear construction, learn the reasons for rapid development, and look at how designers continue to come up with new ways to disrupt it.
With the advent of faster, more powerful computers and faster internet, we expect our images to be of the highest quality. We as spectators expect more colors, higher resolutions, and more detailed designs, because our computers can handle these images; and over the past five years, designers have had to be careful about what they can dump on us. We now fully expect the craftsmanship and design that seems to jump out of our computer monitors, labels, or packaging products.
Thanks to photo tablets, new design software, and advances in printing, designers can truly innovate and design - almost without limit! Imagine how quickly a graphic designer could create with a tablet, rather than using a mouse to do all his work. And then with design suits like Adobe Creative Suite releasing new software, updated every few years, the programs incorporate robust design options for innovators in an unusual and unusual way!
Printers now have the ability to print high-resolution images, combine inks together to create realistic presentations of what you see in a computer monitor, allowing for brighter designs on more objects than ever before.
New Ideas and Strategies
While the clear construction of the internet era began in the 1990s, there was not much deviation from the original designs. People often use many of the same techniques to create the same content. Gradually, people began to deviate from the path and began to create content in new and exciting ways.
Now that the technology has expanded, giving designers hundreds of programs to choose from, there are probably as many ways to design drawings as there are graphic designers! Seeing a designer's personality shine through their work is always a bonus.
People expect to be drawn to design, whether it’s product packaging or a film poster, web design or digital art. We expect our designers to use the powerful technology around them to create the world with just a look. After all, is it not better to browse through a website that feels like it tells a story about a company, product, or individual rather than to browse for those that feel cold?
A designer who can use technological advances to tell a story about their design - even to a few of his portfolio groups - is considered one of the best in their business!
Back when the internet was just widely available in a typical home, design was more effective than design. Pages were usually a large amount of text, separated by a very small image (and very low quality) at times, or by horizontal rules. Product packaging was simple but effective, but it did not surprise us. Today, if we look at a graphic design portfolio, we expect everything in it to go into perfect construction so that it can easily flow from one place to another. Product packaging has become an art in itself, with vibrant colors and information that adds to the design, rather than a distraction.
Let's face it - most of us have a laid-back attitude when it comes to painting a picture about the latest design projects. We expect "WOW!" a feature in design these days. For example, the left piece is actually what is known as vexel art, or pixel art made to mimic high-quality vector art. This piece is not a vector piece that includes working hours in a program like Adobe Illustrator but is a simplified form developed in Adobe Photoshop.
Thanks to advances in technology, artists and designers are developing ways and styles that will always impress us!
