Design is Hard: Inspirational, Creative Trends for 2017

Design is hard. Everywhere you look, things are… out of place. From the way the furniture in your friend’s living room is setup to PowerPoint slides your co-worker presents to investors, to websites up and down the internet, it’s quite obvious not everyone has an eye for design.

For our feature this week, we are going to celebrate great design and laugh along with some of the most epic failures. Our goal is to inspire, entertain, motivate, and inform you of the trends we see in 2017.  But we aren’t perfect and we have included links from across the web, but we still need you!  Share your favorite content in the comments and use the comments section to discuss and learn from the community.
