Graphic Design Ideas: Stay Relevant With Trends

Keep your freelance graphic design portfolio relevant and up-to-date by following design trends. Commissioning yourself for portfolio work will help you attract the type of client work you want.

Some of the current trends we’re seeing in 2021 include muted color palettes, geometric shapes, simplified data visualizations, and flat icon illustrations.
