Graphic Design in Los Angeles
Graphic design in Los Angeles seems to have trends. Perhaps these trends occur in waves, starting at metro cities, or wherever graphic designers are concentrated, and oscillating out. Los Angeles and New York city attracts numerous graphic designers because these cities have many marketing and advertising agencies and are highly populated. The movie and entertainment industry in Los Angeles probably also attracts a lot of graphic artists.
Everywhere you look there are graphics; billboards, signs, TV, menus, mail, your phone, etc. You can’t help but notice the graphic design trends that transcend devices and different types of media.
However, as with every design trend, it’s important not to look like everyone else. The best designs are innovative and distinct. However, armed with creativity, even old and overused trendy designs can be made fresh.
I’m lucky to be exposed to many awesome free thinkers, photographers, animators, artists, and graphic designers in Los Angeles; they inspire me. I really appreciate the creative spirit I see everywhere I look. In Los Angeles, I am often surprised by the nourished creativity found in the most unexpected places and things.
It will be interesting to see how graphic design evolves in the future, especially in regards to virtual reality, not just in Los Angeles, but around the world.
