Creepy cover of James Franco by Uncle Terry, and you may notice old Bookman’ in the corner, I think it’s coming up. If I drew a map of trending design elements, they would start off in boutique (foreign) design agencies where creativity x freedom are at their highest (you see the most flashy coolest’ experimental design often in fashion zines and the like), and then it drips down to upperclass magazines, and other foreign design studios. Say if a trend starts off in Brazil or Latin America, you might see it popping up in spanish design studios, or french agencies. Once the trend gets a bit of momentum, it will start getting picked up on blogs like ffffound and tumblr diaries… and it’s out!
