2020 is a few weeks away and Creative Bloq has come up with a handy list of graphic design trends that are expected to be popular among the creative community.
According to these designers, 2020 is all about intensifying minimalism, innovative typography, abstract 3D and showcasing natural beauty.
According to the designers at Grady Britton, minimalist, flat design will be dominating 2020. “Design will strip away flair and embellishment,” creative director Brian Dixon said.
Creatives will work towards a simpler and cleaner presentation that will “intentionally appear unfinished at time,” he explained.
Having a flat design allows users to “interact with interfaces and find the content they’re looking for,” designer Paul Levy commented. Flat design, according to Levy, includes primary colors, simple, intuitive two-dimensional illustrations and easy-to-read type.
Senior art director Adam Murdoch believes that design minimalism comprises of tones that are warm and cozy, with warmer tones like beige, sage and pale yellow being used in luxury brand color palettes.
Thanks to 3D render technology, abstract 3D forms could be making their way into 2020. UX designer at Illustrate Digital Consuela Onighi noticed that many designs “have created a 3D feel,” fusing “layers of typography, images, shapes” to create depth.
Neons, fluorescents and bright lights might also be adopted by creative agencies to help them stand out.
Impero’s design director Davide Baratta said that most designs are experimenting with typography and bespoke typefaces in branding, and head project designer at Crello Nazar Begen noted that designers are using typography to innovative compositions.
“Artistic typography, maxi typography spilt into multiple lines, and semi-transparent fonts are on the rise,” he said. This technique is also good for companies who wish “to deliver messages through simple, strong, singular statements.”
2020 will also give rise to “un-touched imagery,” according to Jennie Potts, design director at B&B Studio. Brands are using real people over models to create a real connection with its audience.
Companies are noticing the power of celebrating consumers instead of using just a single aesthetic.
