The UK is back in the depths of recession. Recovery failed to gain any pull in 2011. In 2011 the economy grew by 0.9 percent for the complete year. And 2012 saw a bad beginning as the economy fell by 0.4 percent in last quarter of 2011 and then another 0.3 percent in first quarter of 2012.This can clearly indicate that UK is in recession. It’s double-dip recession, where an economy goes back into recession again without having a chance to recover from the previous one.

Some of these are not too far-fetched, while others will undoubtedly take a lot of achieving and are far in the future, or even unlikely to happen at all.

Oh, Hollywood. If it wasn’t for screenwriters and directors with overly active imaginations, would any of us be sitting around even considering the possibility of there one day being flying cars, trains, or buses? Even television shows such as Doctor Who have a lot to answer for in that respect.
One of the biggest problems with looking to the future is that we will, inevitably, be disappointed. When man first landed on the moon in 1969, there was talk that humans would one day live there, and that we would soon be travelling to Mars and colonising other worlds.

As a graphic designer, I’m always browsing the web for inspiration and informative articles.
I recently stumbled upon an article from eCollegeFinder, a portal for online colleges, that questioned whether digital design skill stems from education or natural talent. In the article, designer Jim Casa says, “In the digital design field, continuing to learn and grow is a must. To remain successful, a designer has to keep up with changing technology, practices, and trends…” While the article seems to lean towards innate talent being the first step toward success, it got me thinking about how important the advancement of training and technology is to a designer.
So what are the hot topics in the future of design?
