Graphic design and Photoshop trends are always changing. Sometimes they go away only to come back re-interpreted. In this post I tried to capture 7 Graphic Design Trends in 2019 with examples that you can use for inspiration.
Some of the resources below are Photoshop resources that are free to download, some are simply projects that designers have made.
There is no authority on setting design trends in graphic design, however we can guess from the kind of graphic designs that were successful last year, what will work and what we should improve as graphic designers this year.
Movie posters, company logos, ads, book covers, CD covers, etc. These are all examples where graphic design plays a very important role. Recently I encountered a list with amazing samples of modern graphic design and those are only a few outstanding works of graphic designers these days. But, you kind of get the idea of certain styles and trends.
Let's take a look at the very latest trends of graphic design!
Low Key Lighting, Black on Black and Dark Light
Making images black and white and increasing the contrast gives a very clean look to designs. Another design trend is the black on black design where emphasis is put on the gloss of the subject. This sometimes is meant to underline the premium aspect of the product or subject presented. This can be achieved by using low key light photography.

Gold will always be gold. In design it indicates premium products, highly refined and top quality. Designers use all sorts of methods to achieve the gold look especially for things that are not normally made out of gold. This augments the effect.
Gold in special and the metallic look in design indicates cleanliness, order and attention to details.
