Sample Art Pro Trends

Each Art PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online art articles, videos and images. Examples:

Typographic Provisions Bread and baked goods are marketed in font-focused packaging Implications - Elegant typographic packaging for bread and baked goods add a touch of familiarity to what is seen as an increasingly challenging product to market. Infusing the product with a sense of confectionery whimsy and authenticity, text-focused packaging turns to various typographic styles to position the product as worthy of even the discerning consumer's consideration.

Subversive Wildlife Wildlife photographers trade in shock value for more honest depictions Implications - Many wildlife photographers are foregoing shock tactics in favor of a more authentic way of depicting their subjects. By photographing animals, insects and sea creatures in unique contexts that are often up-close and personal, these artists are offering alternative narratives that attract audience engagement. This approach serves as a breath of fresh air for viewers who are over-saturated with content produced solely to shock.
