Stock photography has changed – for the better. There’s a plethora of free, unique stock photography out there, and designers are using it! Check out Unsplash, for example. This beautiful image is from there, by Sonja Langford.

Images in 2015 of high quality, unique, big. They’re likely to only get bigger, too. Humans like images, and current design trends reflect that.

Strong Typography

More and more websites are incorporating unique fonts, visual hierarchies and strong, powerful statements into their designs.
