Published

on

As they say, “everything old is new again,” and 2018 will be a year of modernizing graphic design trends from the past and diverging from the (literally) flat design landscape of recent years. Minimalism and simplification will stick around, but expect to see some old favorites make their return to the limelight with modern, updated looks.

If you’re feeling fashionable and want to add some contemporary flair to your designs, check out these 10 graphic design trends that will wow your customers in 2018.

Here are 10 graphic design trends to watch in 2018

  1. Responsive logos
  2. Gradients
  3. More depth (with semi-flat design)
  4. Dashing duotones
  5. Palettes & patterns inspired by the 80’s & 90’s
  6. Movement: animations & GIFs
  7. Bold typography
  8. Custom graphic art and illustration
  9. Authentic photography
  10. Highly-detailed vintage

1. Responsive logos

It’s been 10 years since responsive design began to revolutionize the web, and since then it has become the industry standard. The rapid rise of mobile browsing (and an endless assortment of devices and screen sizes) has created critical usability issues for traditional websites. Designers and developers began experimenting with various ways to make designs adapt to the user’s device as a one-website-fits-all solution. This laid the groundwork for what would become known as “responsive design.”

The idea of altering logos to meet the same user demands has largely remained unthinkable… until now. Companies have been refreshing their logos into modern, simplified versions over the past few years and responsive logo design is the logical next step in meeting the demands of today.

2. Gradients (and we’re also calling them color transitions)

In the not-so-distant past gradients reigned supreme. They were found on every website button, page header and PowerPoint presentation. Your corporate PDF wasn’t cool unless a gradient graced the cover. Then, sometime around late 2007 they were sidelined as we embraced an era of flat design.

Flat design is evolving, and gradients are making their modern-day comeback as a flat design enhancement. This enhancement is part of a design update often referred to as “flat 2.0” or “semi-flat design”. Their reappearance in iOS and adoption by industry leaders like Stripe and Instagram have solidified their popularity once again, and you’ll be seeing them in the form of vibrant UI, branding, backgrounds, illustrations and overlays.

 

We’re also seeing an increased use of the term “color transitions” when referring to gradients. While the terms seem to be used interchangeably, “color transition” more often refers to the modern application which is vibrant, smooth and “flatter”—fitting within flat design aesthetics.

3. More depth (with semi-flat design)

We’ve been seeing them a lot lately, and it’s safe to say that shadows are officially back in 2018. Like gradients, shadows were put on the back burner as we stripped realism and skeuomorphism from our designs in favor of extreme minimalism and two-dimensional design.

In hindsight, depth was a valuable tool for helping users determine visual hierarchy, input fields and calls to action on screen. Designers had been experimenting with “long-shadows” as an acceptable means to add more dimension to their flat designs when Google Material Design reintroduced real shadows as an enhancement to their UI. The idea quickly spread outside of Material Design and designers began reintroducing shadows of their own. These shadows were large, soft, sometimes colored and added subtle depth and dimension unlike their harsh, overused, “drop-shadow” predecessors.

Why did Daniel Patry Break His Gabriel Kuhn Body Into Two Parts, despite being friends?

Published

on

16-year-old after Gabriel Kuhn, 12, refused to repay $1.75 for virtual currencies, Daniel Patry sodomized him as well as killed him and cut to pieces his corpse. What began as a means to allow Gabriel Kuhn, then 12, to make new friends and have a blast was turned into the death penalty when he was introduced to Daniel Patry, then 16.

Due to his past of violent outbursts, Daniel’s parents referred the boy to a variety of Brazilian psychiatrists with the hope that one of them would help their son of 16 years. Daniel was scared of doctors and refused to open up to them. However, his aggressive behaviour in therapy eventually led Daniel to quit attending therapy.

Some claim he was in a psychiatric institution, and others claim that he quit attending classes. Neither claim has been confirmed.

Daniel, most of the time, was on the internet engaging in Tibia games. Daniel played for hours and hours playing the Tribia monster in his interactions online with other gamers.

A Conversation between Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry

During one of his lengthy games, Daniel was able to meet Gabriel as Daniel and Gabriel moved next door to one another and acted as fast acquaintances.

There were lots of coins available to spend in the no-cost Tribia game. Coins can be used to purchase everything within the game, including new characters and outfits and virtual animals.

Gabriel has created a private server to ensure that Gabriel as well as Daniel can play the game together. Gabriel once contacted Daniel and asked that he take a loan to borrow virtual currency so that the player could buy items from the virtual store of the game. Gabriel needed 20 thousand pennies, or around $1.75, to purchase something in American currency. After a few days, Gabriel said he would return the coins. Daniel took the loan offer.

When Daniel attempted to log in to the game one of the days Gabriel was scheduled to return the money, he discovered that he was barred off the servers.

Daniel was irritated and decided to decide to pay Gabriel an unexpected visit to his home. When Daniel finally came to Gabriel’s house, He had already decided to end Gabriel, his “buddy.”

When Daniel returned home, Gabriel was there by herself. Although Daniel due Daniel the money and blocked Daniel from his server, He had no idea that the teenager was capable of such a rage. To try to repair the fences between him and his friend, Gabriel welcomed him inside, and he entered.

After entering the house, Daniel immediately launched an attack upon Gabriel and slashed the boy, who was smaller in size and brutally beat him several times.

While Gabriel lay on the ground in pain as well as bleeding, Daniel was laughing at his ridicule. Gabriel then declared (with determination) that he was telling his mother about the incident Daniel did.

Daniel cut the computer cord of Gabriel and began to choke Gabriel. The incident reportedly sparked his sexual desire, and he launched into a sexual attack on Gabriel while he continued to tighten cords around his neck.

Daniel Hems Gabriel’s Body into Two

Daniel believed that Gabriel had died and attempted to squeeze his body into the crawl space but failed. He found a hacksaw within the house and began cutting Gabriel’s body up into small pieces, thinking that this was the most convenient method to move the body.

Thankfully, Gabriel had not yet died. Then, he fell and screamed. Daniel was awed by the possibility of being able to hear Gabriel screaming and fighting. Despite Gabriel’s pleas for help, he kept cutting his body until it was split into two pieces.

He tried to stuff Gabriel’s head and body into the crawlspace after creating Tibia symbols inside his body. When he realized that his body would be too large, Daniel abandoned it in the hallway and ran away. The following day, Gabriel’s brother discovered the grisly scene.

Daniel admits to killing.

When the police first learned of the dispute on the internet, and were able to question Daniel. Daniel admitted to having killed Gabriel and also provided the investigators with gory details of the incident. Daniel didn’t appear to feel guilty as he recounted his experiences.

The moment they learned that Daniel had been sodomized by Gabriel and had sex with him, they believed they were homosexual. In response, he snarled and denied his homosexuality.

Gabriel spent three years in a Juvenile detention Center.

Daniel Patry was tried and was found guilty by the courts in Brazil as a young man and found guilty of three-year imprisonment in a juvenile detention facility. The prison sentence was lifted in 2010, and Daniel was released. Following Daniel’s release, his whereabouts and whereabouts were largely unrecorded. Perhaps he’s been using the name of a different person now.
