Trends come and go, and it looks like this year 'flat design' and filtered imagery are flying high above the rest in the world of design. Led by changes in app and website design particularly, flat design elements have increased by 200% over the past year. With the increasing popularity of retro photo editing apps such as Instagram and VSCO, searches for filtered images also exploded over 650% in 2013, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Handwritten fonts are also a making their presence known.
