|How do you distinguish passing fads from mainstays in new trends?
I never follow trends or Fads, I keep to the beat of my own drummer. I try to stay with colors that are always timeless and classic then add a splash of season color to keep it fresh
Eveything in fashion depends on customer, your design to become a fad or a trend is only decided by customers.
Comfort zone, current interests, climate,... makes them a fad or a new trend
go with my gut and what I love
IT SHOULD BE SEEN I THEIR DESIGN.
Do not do anything that is trendy always stear a client away from superficiality.

By looking back at classic design and keeping current by reading magazines and blogs, being able to differentiate between fads and the classics becomes second nature.
As a designer, I have to distinguish form and function. Not form from function.

Classic fonts, great understanding of type, balance and
interpretation and so much more.
