90s graphic design featured lots of bold colours, and references to past styles and decades. Pop culture influenced the graphics, predominantly from the underground music scene. New fonts including San Serif, Comic Sans, and handwritten style fonts became ubiquitous and then cliched and avoided.
Big influences came from fashion, graffiti, R&B, rap, indie rock and house music graphics.
90s graphic designs featured distinctive bold and vibrant colours, funky textures and patterns using abstract shapes. Graphic artists rejected all the classic design rules, with many freely available creative fonts the freedom of electronic creativity came to dominate.
