So avoid the trauma to your creative self, and learn how to use trends to your advantage without selling out your aesthetic or your artistic soul.
A fad is something is short lived, driven by emotional excitement, and will usually fade in time. A trend has staying power, sometimes it is a fad that has evolved into a relatively permanent status.
So if you’re looking for something to try, look out for anything that seems ridiculous to you but is actually very popular-this my friend, is a fad.
Adapting a trend to your style is where trends have will have real power and add credibility to your body of work.
The minute you decide that changing your art, your style of design, just to get more followers on social media or to make more money, you are selling out.
When you control the fads and trends, you become a success, not a sellout.
