Top 100 Design Trends in August

From Functional Bike Gear Bags to Humorously Punny Phone Cases

— September 4, 2018 — Art & Design
The August 2018 design trends extend themselves to the arrangement of furniture, the hybridization of products, the stealth of successful marketing campaigns and more. However, the category also identifies the field as an art-focused tool for illuminating public spaces. Aside from the numerous branding initiatives that equip brands like ffeel: with an expressively youthful image and the strategic arrangements of spaces that satisfy specific collaborative or privacy-favoring purposes, artists have been using the power of design to foster community-enhancing urban projects.

There are two dominant examples of this approach and both involve a parking facility. In Montréal, creative duo CYRCLE arranges a sizable art installation that embellishes the dark interior of the building, while a similar initative unfolds in Miami with a Museum Garage that boasts several styles of work.
