99designers take on the line art trend

With flat design and vintage trends capturing designers’ imagination for the past few years, it’s no surprise that line art, or line craft, is taking the design scene by storm. Casting off skeuomorphic textures for minimal, mono-weight lines, this trend takes the best aspects of retro style and simplifies it into charming graphics that will look great on anything.

Stamp them on photographs to give a website extra oomph, turn the icons into a cool pattern to modernize your branding, dress up a hipster t-shirt – the world is your oyster! Check out some of our favorite line art designs below and find some inspiration for your next design.
