I've noticed the same thing, but it's not really a trend - graphic designers have all been wearing these glasses for years. It is strange that such supposedly creative people, can be so lacking in imagination that they all need to wear the same glasses. I guess that's the difference between graphic designers and real artists - if you're artistic and have imagination/creativity you become an artist; if you're artistic but have no imagination/creativity you become a graphic designer.
Hate it. just like I hate Pabst Blue Ribbon and girls tying flannel shirts around their waist in 90 degree heat. Just shows that they probably lack a personality. Its not entirely theyre fault though. If anyone has been to a mallo recently, all the stores sell the same stuff so I can kinda cut people some slack.
They are bloody everywhere. Why are people with perfect vision wearing large spectacles? The logic escapes me. They were cute to begin with, now they are overdone, silly and not "hipster" at all. They've been mainstreamed.
