Greenfield Belser 2017 Annual Review

Greenfield Belser has been a Finn Partners company for almost two years. This year we are adopting the new Finn brand style we created for the firm that is on the second spread of our book.

Really, it is impossible to say we love the work we did for one client more than another, but our goal is always to show you a balanced portfolio—across sectors with firms of varying sizes located all around the country.

Design Trends 2015 – Part Two

Design Trends 2015 – Part Two

Last week, we shared Getty’s Visual Trends for 2015 and promised to share iStock’s Design Trends for 2015 this week. Let’s just say design in 2015 looks like it’s going to be a lot about people, people and more people. These trends highlight the human experience with deeper levels of visualizing our senses. So, go ahead and eat it up.

iStock Design Trends 2015


“Unique lifestyles. Original looks. 2015 is all about the interesting female. Instead of cliché, over-idealized images, we’re saluting original, surprising women — quirks and all.”


“Filmmakers got the memo years ago. Now the wide format is all the design rage. New screen sizes are driving new image proportions. For designers, it means working with smaller spaces, which also means more creativity — but you’re a pro at that.”


Technology’s moving so fast, we sometimes get nostalgic for the old days. Images are feeling the tug, harkening back to the look of rich film and monochromatic color. Think bright whites and strong blacks, a modern take on Kodak Porta colour negative film.”


“Celebrating the mixing bowl that is humankind — stir for best results. From cool hipsters in traditional settings to same-sex couples with kids, it’s not about being different. It’s about being real.”


“The love affair with our own point of view isn’t over. Thanks to technology, it’s just getting more intimate. Now we take photos from ski masks, surfboards and the collars of our four-legged friends. The visual stories of 2015 bring us unexpected perspectives, up close and personal.”


“Bring on pixels you can taste, touch, and smell — never mind the screen. 2015 is all about embracing experience in vivid, immersive imagery. Try macro images that heighten awareness, creating a sensory wonderland.”


“Pause. Inanimate objects are taking over the small screen. And not in any ordinary way. 2015 is about the artistry of still life — the interesting angle, the exquisite arrangement, even capturing the intricate handmade object — resulting in big, dynamic images for small screens.”


“It used to be all about copy space. Now, photos are taking a stand, becoming more complex. So copy is claiming its space in text boxes on top of busy images, creating richness and layering.”
