I'm not even sure Papyrus is "free". And there's a thousand better free fonts, especially today. I'd use something Art Nouveau/70s in there (because the plant obviously echoes Japanese art)

don't know, but it's as onions as it gets. the numale face is real. they're all making faces in the photos, and there are titles under their photos like "full-time dreamer" and "beer bon vivant".
pretty much what you'd expect from "craft beer aficionados"

>The 80s had the best aesthetics
I agree.
There was an actual effort to experiment that just died out after the mid-90s. Apple's aggressive marketing really took off in the 2000s, and EVERYONE jumped on the minimalism bandwagon. It's only gotten worse sense then.

I don't dislike minimalism, but I've gotten pretty sick of it over the years. The last two decades didn't have any real identity of their own, and I think the 2020's would benefit from something fresh.
>>
>>365505
people like to bash Apple, but I think other factors played much bigger role.
after design has been computerized, a lot of amateurs without education or skills entered the field, because they decided design was something "everyone could do". in result the field has been oversaturated with cheap designers who know nothing about design beside Illustrator tutorials.
at the same time, print died and was replaced by web, effectively destroying the long tradition of design and replacing it with web and its vague and turbulent standards. a focus on new tech like 3D, effects and video also played a huge role, largely devaluing traditional graphics and making it a niche medium. what's more, some design tasks such as web page creation have been pretty much automated, effectively destroying the market for new solutions.
in result it's simply an infertile soil for any innovation in design. there's no point when no one wants it and it pays like shit. knowing C4D or even web development will pay much more than just design. turned out that no one cared about the art of design beside a bunch of enthusiasts who were unlucky enough to get a design degree.
>>
>>365487
>>365503
these are uneasy to look at
>>
>>365511
I agree that Apple isn't entirely at fault, it's the copycat companies that latched onto their marketing design aesthetic. But implying that the the minimalist style rose to popularity because of the amateur freelancers rather than the amateurs getting work because of the minimalist style already being popular is naive at best.
>>
>>365501
what is this effect called again?
>>
>>365517
>But implying that the the minimalist style rose to popularity because of the amateur freelancers rather than the amateurs getting work because of the minimalist style already being popular is naive at best.
no, of course I didn't imply that. I was talking more regarding creativity in design in general, and why "The last two decades didn't have any real identity of their own".
however, speaking of minimalism, I agree with you wholeheartedly. I feel design has died as art/discipline and has become the same as fashion, in a bad way. you know, like fashion, it's just recycling a bunch of trends from previous decades, calling it new, milking these trends to death, repeating it ad nauseam with no real meaning, only to discard it after the due date and replace with a new one that makes "today" look like "yesterday"—rinse, wash, repeat.
minimalism being vogue is ironic really, who would have thought it will be a luxurious fashion item one day.

High energy design for a high energy product.
A calm and soothing design might look good, but there'd be a disconnect between the design and the intention of the product itself.
>>
>>366481
yeah but can't high energy design look 2010s? like, there's this geometric/neon stripe aesthetic today, like on gaming stuff, can't it look high energy too?
Monster might be high energy, but it looks like something from Slipknot/cybergoth era. The rest, like Adrenaline Rush, Nos, and a few others just use 2000s fonts—square and/or oblique.
