The biggest trend we’re talking about this month started at WWDC as Apple provided a glimpse of what’s coming next for their operating systems. This time around there’s a distinct design element. Did you catch it?
Here’s what’s trending in design this month.
1. Text Highlights and Underlines
There’s always been an unwritten rule in website design that text uses more plain styles. Bold is acceptable, italics are OK from time to time, but underlining is seldom used.
This design trend bucks that concept with text elements that use highlighter or underline elements to emphasize key words. And it works rather nicely.
What it takes to make this work is plenty of contrast and a design style that fits with underline or highlighted elements.
This design trend works thanks to clear intention.
