Trends aren't necessarily something you have to follow, but being aware of them is important. When it comes to Graphic Design this is especially true.
In an article written by Janie Kliever for the Canva Design School Blog, she points out 9 trends and explains why it's important to be aware of them,
"But even if you’re not one to follow the trends, as a designer, it’s smart to be aware of the shifts going on in your industry—if only to avoid them before they become overused, or to have the opportunity to twist them into something new and interesting.
While forecasting trends with any certainty is a tricky business, many members of the design industry seem to have developed a consensus as to what styles and approaches are most likely to take off in 2016."
Here are the 9 trends she pointed out:
1. “Modern” Retro Style
Erin L. M. McGuire

No need to worry about production lead-times, shipping methods, or carrier transit times. You just tell us when you need your order to arrive and we take care of everything else, guaranteed.
Your shopping cart includes an interactive calendar that allows you to select a specific date your order will arrive. The quoted delivery fee will adjust automatically based on your selected date and any items added to or removed from your cart. Our standard turnaround is 15 business days from order placement to delivery.
In order to deboss your notebooks, we create a metal die image of your logo/design, which must be only positive and negative space, i.e. black and white.
That means your image should be solid black shapes/lines... no colored, shaded or screened areas can be included.
Large areas of black often do not imprint well and we recommend you use an outline for better results. Super fine lines and tiny, or ornate text also do not always imprint well.
