1. Flat 2.0  is characterised by a clean, colorful look, big typography, white space, and subtle gradients. It’s influenced by minimalism, Bauhaus and the Swiss Style. Flat design was introduced in 2006 with Microsoft’s Zune mp3 player, refreshed by Apple’s iOS 7 in 2013, and further refined by Google’s Material design in 2014 It’s also easy to mix flat design with more intricate or hand drawn artwork and photography, which makes the trend versatile and flexible.

2 Bold, Playful Typography –together with tools like the Glyphs app that make the production of fonts more easy and inexpensive, pave the way for dramatic and creative typography. Bold statements, playful sans-serif typefaces, and letter stacking.We’ll continue to see new crops of handwritten fonts in 2016
