This article we are going to talk about is fairly recent. But upon reading it we thought it should be talked about here as well. We all know the struggle to keep up with trends. It is even harder to try and predict what is going to be the next trend to stick around. We all remember how flat design conquered the design world. We have been surfing this wave for many years.
Well, maybe the new exciting trend has been poking its head out for some time already. We first really noticed it with the Instagram logo. That was a hot topic for quite some time. In 2017, Apple stormed the world with its 9th? no, wait, it’s 10th iPhone (X) product and promoted it later on a landing page with a new type of design. These unconventional gradients are called multicolor with irregular blending. Now we are far from just a linear or radial gradient here and this technique has been used by many other companies since. Undoubtedly, this trend is here to stay.
Just browse the web and you will find many more gradient techniques used for Web, UX, UI and even for a lot of print media. I mean have you noticed what Adobe included in its 2019 Illustrator version? You guessed it a new gradient tool. One that will make some of these awesome multicolor with irregular blending gradients easy peasy lemon squeezy.
