I like some of the ideas here, but I think the true star of 2017 will be good design as the default. I foresee the future of design as something within reach of the common man. Away from jargon. Away from the expert-only club. This makes a lot of designers uncomfortable, but I think it’s a good thing and can only make us more valuable. I think 2017 is the year that trends become passé and design becomes more about strategy than tangible visual trends.
