To start the year right for people in the design and print industry, , has come out with another #infographic called "9 Graphic Design Trends for 2015".

Stock photos are out, and illustrations are in, as well as the use of single shades of solid colors. Both taking an inspiration from the past, seemingly opposite designs - the zany colorways and flowery classic detailing of paisley pop, and the heavily geometric pixel play will both be favored for this year.
