Hi, what are you looking for?


Ombre was the biggest design trend of 2016

Cast your mind back to 2015. It was a simpler time when continents were (more) united and 75% of women had ombre hair.

Fast forward to the present and the ombre backlash has begun in the hair world, but there’s one area where you may not have noticed ombre’s ubiquity over the past 12 months: tech.

As much as we may like to pick out one shade as the colour of the year, 2016 was actually all about ombre – the gradual blending of one colour into another – Wired reports.

Once associated with the psychedelic swinging sixties, ombre has made a reappearance, and it was perhaps in the world of tech that the trend was most apparent.

Take a look at the apps on your phone and you’ll realise many of them – Instagram, Boomerang and iTunes for example – have redesigned their logos this year to feature ombre shading.

Ombre design is now used by numerous brands and websites including PayPal, The Verge and Jason Kottke’s superblog.

If you look out for it, you may notice that ombre is everywhere.
