Several years ago, as many championed the "less is more" look of minimalist design, practically every bit of graphic design began to look alike.
Minimalist design certainly has its place, but has it gone too far? Sometimes minimalist design feels like a conveniently lazy alternative. And that's where maximalist design takes the opposite view.
If minimalism asserts that "less is more", the reactionary maximalist movement says "more is more!" Let's look at three of the best templates with maximalist-inspired design.
3 Top Maximalist Video Templates
1. Retro Summer Party Opener (Premiere Pro)
With the maximlist style of the 80's at play, this template runs no risk of being called minimalist. Zoom down a digital highway with flashing lights and motion graphics while animating your details to life.
2. Event Opener (After Effects)
A mix of shapes, color, animated text and more are a maximalist's dream for promoting an event. Use this to promote a high-energy, content-rich event with the help of a few stock photos and video footage.
3. Draw Colorful Opener (After Effects)
Draw has a hand-illustrated feel to it that has more than enough items to qualify as maximalist. Your opener will feel like it was drawn just for your purpose once you add your photos and branding choices.
