There's no name for the style you're referring to that I'm aware of. Its just using Gestalt Principle of Closure which can be read about in all sorts of places such as Creative Bloq: Gestalt Theory. The most iconic probably being the World Wildlife Foundation Panda We also have a number of questions on the topic: http://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/...

The 90s had quite a few styles over the span of that decade that I think would be identifiable as big graphic design trends. It started with a holdover from the late 80s that I'd perhaps call 'neon': The mid-90s were dominated both visually and musically by the grunge/seattle-sound. Two of the big names from that era would have been Art Chantry (and a lot ...

Every designer has the problem, but... That cake business, yeah you didn't get it right the first time. The dog trainer? Nope you didn't get it perfect either. You know what did happen? You got something up and running that was good enough. They don't care if the UX isn't flawless, the design isn't cutting edge, and the markup isn't beautiful... whatever ...

After years of working with clients and bosses I have learned to always ask, "Why?". For instance in your situation I would be asking, "What's the problem you are trying to solve with using a photograph?". This does two things: It reframes the question from design specifics to a language you both speak well It reframes allows your boss to elaborate on his ...

There's 3 ways you can call this style: Vintage logo or Badge logo or Hipster logo. The way you'll decide to call it probably depends on why you need that term. To a client, you might want to use "vintage" but if you're looking for tutorials or ideas online, you will find a lot of results too using the word "hipster" and "badge logo"!

That is not a "psychedelic" style. This is: https://www.google.com/search?q=psychedelic The image your are posting is just a light beam or electric effect. In terms of colors it is pretty obvious on the google search I posted you what colors are used. Saturated ones, and all the rainbow at the same time. Normally theese colors can be in a gradient, ...

You hold yourself to a higher standard. Rightly or wrongly, you hold yourself to a higher standard when working for yourself. If your clients are happy with the work then you are happy with the work, but your clients generally don't have the same eye for design as you do. We probably all believe (consciously or not) that our own website, logo, branding and ...

The purpose of psychedelic design was/is to express contempt for the order and balance seemingly enforced by society during a particular era (1960-1970s) and to try and break societal boundaries and norms (particularly with music, sexual norms, and drug use). That isn't to say psychedelic design can't have order - there are many examples where there are ...

Are there any modern works, that you would consider inspired by 90s? Yes, grunge. Hotline Miami for example has a graphic style, that i would say is very 80s, but also modern. The thing is, some trends stick and become "classics" in a way. They have personality, an identity to refer to in a way. And trends often get on a cycle, they rotate and evolve. ...

The upper "bad" font looks fresh and is legible, which is great. I would however consider using a cleaner font for "habitats". Since that is the focus of the company, making sure that part of your logo is crystal clear is definitely something worth exploring. Using one grungy and one clean font can build a nice level of contrast in your logo, encouraging the ...

Agree with Ryan that Bad habitats is not a very good name, especially when used with a prime example. Maybe instead of a broken bowl you could use a badass fish? Like a grinning skeleton fish with a nose piercing? Together with the graffiti style text, this could work. This would hint more at the tongue in cheeck, but also at the dying off of fish and coral ...

Do the lettering and style match the idea? Lettering of Bad does. I like the Bad on the top the most though, but any of them are alright. The Lettering of Habitat not so much and I'd be concerned about how well it will reproduce in different contexts. Does the Fishbowl work? Not even a little. Neither does the word Bad. Like Janus said ...

It's based on something called Anaglyph 3D, but in a photo like this it's more for style and not actually creating 3D. As for how to create it, there's this post here on GD but also tons of off-site tutorials if you search the term.

These are examples of negative space designs.

Apple has the iOS Human Interface Guidelines, which set some limitations on design but they shouldn't prevent you from implementing material design in your app. The only real limitations you have to implementing material design on iOS are technical. The built-in iOS UI elements have varying levels of possible customization. Some are limited to changing ...

The dashes are usually used in wireframe designs and scamps. I would call this a flat design mockup concept. When I ran a search I came across this http://www.titanui.com/17339-flat-designed-mobile-cooking-app-wireframe-psd/ Hope it answers your doubt

I don't like anything. Not because I'm a hater but the name is wrong, the font is wrong and using a fishbowl is wrong as well especially to fish lovers (and by fish lovers, I'm not speaking of gastronomy.) You can't use a fishbowl for saltwater fish. You can't use a fishbowl because it's probably the worst habitat for a fish. And you can't use a fishbowl ...

The practice of drawing on frames of a film is called Rotoscoping. Specifically, manually altering each frame of a video to include previously absent visuals. This is not only used for things like drawing on film, but special effects as well.

[This question is very speculative as there is no definitive answer as such. But here are a few pointers.] When communicating a certain era through design, look to fashion, history, power-influences and the zeitgeist in general. A Case Study: Early 90s Clubbing Culture For example, in late 80s-early 90s Britain, a "working-class" fashion trend which ...
