Echoes of the Future features recent graphic design and illustration that is deliberately created with a limited palette of forms and colors, which makes the work seem older than it is. This aspiration to visual longevity contrasts sharply with the rapidly shifting styles of previous years that seemed out-of-date almost immediately. Especially in these times of economic uncertainty, more and more brands, products, and businesses are using designs that promote the impression of stability.
