We are absolutely delighted to know if we will be witnessing a total apocalypse in the world of graphic design or if everything will remain the same, as before. We are definitely seeing designers take several directions.
Discover more details about the graphic design trends:
Open compositions: Get rid of the frames.
The first of our predictions for graphic design trends are open compositions. Not long ago, designers used to put frames in everything to get the feel of a finished design. Lately, there has been a trend towards open and airy designs that seem to show only a part of the whole “image”.
While each piece seems to show only a part of the complete design, designers can easily play with the composition and make it literally infinite with each part continuing the composition. This trend is easily achieved in web design, but it is possible even in printed designs.
3D : Depth of a new generation.
3D may not become a graphic design trend. 3D has proven to be a fairly stable and constant trend over the last few years, so we will definitely see a lot. Fortunately for all of us, technologies are evolving quite rapidly, allowing graphic designers to create incredible 3D masterpieces that make the viewer almost immersed in the design.
The 3D trend will definitely be a big part of web design and is most often presented as open compositions that take on the roles of windows to another world. Designers will recreate pieces that remember the real world and those that take us to alternative universes or even to the future. The possibilities that this trend has are really infinite.
Anti-gravity: flying and floating elements.
We may not have lived to see flying cars, but the era of flying elements in graphic design has definitely arrived. Flying and floating graphic elements are among our graphic design trends predictions.
The idea of designs that move and behave as if they were in a gravity-free environment conveys the general sense of freedom. Designed with an open composition in mind, these elements propel the main concept of a window to a new world, as they appear floating inside and outside the screen.
3D technique is often confused with the concept of non-gravity which adds to the realism of the composition. While 3D is certainly a field for unlocking your designer’s potential, the concept of non-gravity definitely gives you the green light to spice up the composition.
Bright colours : a trip to Dreamland
Vivid color schemes, as well as dream color transitions and gradients, will continue to be modern, but even more vivid. As they bring a futuristic feel to the overall design, these color combinations will make you feel like you’re in an alternative universe.
Metallic effect: Shine, baby, shine!
Gold never goes out of fashion, we’ll also see many other metallic elements incorporated into the designs. Especially when it comes to 3D designs, gold and other metallic elements take the entire composition to the next level, making it look expensive and exclusive.
Effect liquid and liquid: Let it flow!
The surface of a water translated into a graphic design is certainly a trend that will be achieved in many visual designs. Whether it’s water, oil or other liquid substance, this trend inspires many of the contemporary designs and we hope to keep it that way for the next calendar year.
Maxi typography = maxi impact
Typography as an inseparable part of graphic design definitely follows certain trends, some that remain for years and others that fade away quite quickly. As we have seen in the previous examples, typography could take on different shapes and forms. It can be flat or come in 3D form. It can be liquefied or made with a metallic effect.
Schema typography: Fillings not allowed
Having gone out of fashion, the typography of the scheme is becoming increasingly popular, so we expect it to peak. Often, interacting with other elements in the compositions, we believe that the letters of the scheme in will be an important part of graphic design and web design next year, so we will definitely include this aspect in our forecast.
Text with background: retro inspiration.
The trend that may seem retro to some may certainly increase the avant-garde aspect of a composition combined with other trends that are surfing the wave. From our point of view, the text in the background pictures looks youthful and rebellious, so it will definitely be a success very soon.
Alternative Art: Strokes, stains, stains and doodles.
It’s not that classic illustrations go out of style, but the incorporation of alternative art in graphic design makes the piece stand out. And that’s the point of graphic design, isn’t it?
Freestyle illustrations and doodles are definitely fun to watch. Add chaotic strokes and color stains, and there’s an unconventional design that’s sure to leave an impression.
Realism + flat design elements.
Have you heard that opposites attract? Graphic designers have always been combining and combining complementary trends to please the viewer’s eyes. But when it comes to creating something really innovative and unexpected, designers prefer to experiment with an unconventional mix of techniques, styles or, in this case, dimensions. Real-life objects combined with completely flat visual elements will, in our opinion.
The colour of the year 2019: Living Coral.
Each year, there are designs inspired by the color of the year. Around the end of each year, the color dictator Pantone announces what next year’s color will be. Naturally, this color does so in all fields of the graphic design industry, including web design, package design, print design, etc.
The graphic design trends promise an interesting year ahead. Months will be full of glamour, vivid colours and movements that break the rules of physics. We really believe that the graphic design trends are the bomb, so we combined them in a great infographics.
Open-ended designs that connect with the viewer’s imagination. 3D designs will be quite massive, but they certainly won’t be boring; their realism will almost immerse the viewer in the composition. Vivid color schemes, as well as metallic elements, will make the designs look beautiful and dreamy.
The typography will be enormous! And very often – scheme. We will be seeing art in its most unconventional forms and forms, and of course, a combination of all these trends and perhaps some that you have not yet thought of.
