Graphic design trends: Origami

April 16, 2012

Every once in a while a certain style catches on the design trends, and this time I'd like to refer to the origami inspired trend that has been going on for a while. Papiroflexia is the name of this oriental art that creates figures out of paper folding. A beautifully crafted origami figure can be an artwork on its own, and graphic design has taken some of its guidelines for different applications. The simplicity and geometric forms that origami figures are constructed from are perfect details to create amazing logos or typefaces, which have been explored by designers already. Here is a small display of examples that take this style to a brilliant level of execution:
