Continuing with gradients
Three years ago, gradients were shown as one of the most buzzing design trends. Surprisingly, it’s continuing for today, as well. Seeing the popularity and great significance, gradients will reign in this year, only with some innovative experiment.

Geometry is a natural formation, and it’s not possible to do design a page without geometric shapes. Using ultra-thin geometric shapes, you can bring the feel to users that they must come to visit your agency.

For an inspirational presentation, you must follow some criteria and one of them using simple fonts with heavy looks.

Designers have put heavy attention on 3D designs recently and it’s not going away this year as well. What you can expect additionally is it’s upgraded level with more creative touch and closeness to reality. Thanks to modern tools and sophisticated technology as they give more power to turn the 3D effects more lively.
