A Brief History of Gradients
Gradients became common a few decades ago as a way to add color and depth to designs. They were a common design trend until the late 2000s, when they were replaced by flat design.
Gradients, on the other hand, made a major comeback in 2018, and now they're everywhere. They're a way to improve flat designs - also known as flat 2.0 - add a color overlay to images, and give backgrounds texture.
What are Gradients?
Gradients, often known as color transformations, are a gradual change from one color to another or, if you're feeling extra bright, from one color to another color to another color—gradients don't have to be two shades.
Gradients may combine or transform similar colors, for example, different shades of blue or a light orange to a dark red, or entirely different or contrasting colors, for example, various shades of blue or a light shade of orange to a dark shade of red, like purple and red or blue and yellow.
The gradient pattern can be used in a variety of ways. It can be a focal point of a design or a background feature, and it can be bold or subtle.
Gradients can also create new color combinations that feel different and modern by mixing and blending different shades of color, giving designs a completely unique feel.
Why are Gradients so Trendy nowadays?
So, why is the gradient trend so popular at the moment? Since they are so appealing to the eye and draw attention to themselves. These stunningly vivid color transitions have a lot of energy, which makes them stand out and helps to elevate any style.
From the backgrounds to the texture to the overlays, it looks more elegant and high-end—and less "Saved by the Bell." Bright, luminous colors and interesting color variations are used in these new gradients, giving them a fresh and modern feel.
