The year 2020 is less than three months away and web design agencies are already wondering what will look like the world of graphic design. There is no doubt that graphic design has always been a field of deep admiration and enormous inspiration for many and we can’t wait to see what awaits. We’ve done an in-depth analysis to spot the increase in several different patterns that are expected to boom next year.
The 3D trend reached its peak in 2019 and it certainly isn’t going to fade away so fast. Due to the possibilities of new technology and software skills, we’ll expect to see more impressive compositions in 3D graphic design in 2020. In addition, designers will often mix it with other facts to be more imaginative, such as images and 2-dimensional objects.
We’ve seen a trend of graphic and web designers recently using a monochromatic color effect on images. Recall the duotonous craze of the 2017 graphic design trends? It turns out, the trend is now evolving into an even simpler version. A monochrome color filter is commonly used in the graphic design on images or partial components.
The use of metallic materials in graphic design has created brand identity and product design as the ultra trendy. By rule, this trend requires an overall minimalist design, since the focus is on the metallic effect itself. We notice the designers use gold for the most part–it conveys luxury, class and good taste. But the shiny effect can also be achieved by using glittery surfaces in any color over matte surfaces.
Variety of Typography
With a view to creating more innovative and modern compositions, designers are playing big time with typography. That trend is expected to thrive in 2020. In figurative and literal words!
Decorated with beautiful flowers, geometric shapes and more creative elements, artistic typography is definitely the perfect solution to get the attention nailed. Combined with the maxi typography trend of the 2019 graphic design trends, the artistic typography will truly stand out in 2020.
Masking of Text and Images
Masking picture and text is not a new technique for the world of design but it still seems very fresh in 2020. As it leaves behind unrevealed a large portion of the picture, it helps attain a mysterious and minimalist look. In 2020, designers will continue to create image-and text-masking compositions, of course sticking to the latter’s maxi typography to achieve the desired effect.
The trend of outline typography and elements that during 2018 and 2019 were quite huge is now transforming into fully illustrated and animated line art patterns and designs. Line art is in its nature a graphic, condensed style of illustration. As such, it’s perfect for conveying ideas and concepts. It looks clean, stylish and discreet. Line art is among the preferred styles of decoration in the 2020 trends in graphic design.
We’ve witnessed a quite interesting and creative graphic design trend that reminds us of the drawings that we used to make on our school notebooks, i.e. doodling. Doodling has begun as a fun phenomenon in the illustration world but has quickly become such a success that we see it all over the web on designs.
When used in graphic design, doodling helps to make the composition feel more informal, personalized, handcrafted and overall fun.
