Top 10 Graphic Design Trends For 2020

2020 is here and surely you are wondering what the world of Graphic Design is gonna look like. Graphic Design has undoubtedly been a field of inspiration and deep admiration for many and we really can't wait to see what the year 2020 holds. Here are a few design trends/styles that will boom in the year 2020.

3D depth and Realism –

Thanks to the technological advancement of software capabilities the 3D trend reached its peak in 2019 and will continue to boom in 2020. Get ready to see more 3D graphic compositions paired with other realities such as photos and other 2D objects.   

Monochrome –

In late 2019, we saw a lot of designers using a monochromatic color effect on pictures. The monochrome trend became very popular in 2017 and it seems the trend will mark it’s return in 2020 with an even simplified version. The monochrome filter will be widely used on photos or partial elements in graphic composition.

So Metal –

Using metallic material is going to be “the trend” when it comes to branding and product designs in 2020. There’s a simple rule when it comes to using So Metal - Keep the design minimal. A simple and minimal overall design draws the attention to the metallic effect itself. Designers prefer using gold as it signifies luxury, class, and good taste. Although, the metallic effect can be achieved by using shiny surfaces over matte surfaces in any color.

Typography -  

Another trend that will flourish in 2020 is Typography. Designers are playing with typography figuratively and literally! Typography supported by beautiful flowers, geometric shapes and other creative elements or collectively known as Artistic Typography will certainly stand out in 2020 when combined with Maxi Typography from Design Trends 2019.

Image and text masking –

Although, image and text masking isn’t a new technique, it still looks quite modern in 2020. This technique helps in achieving a mysterious and minimalistic look as it leaves a big portion of the image behind unrevealed. Designers will continue to create compositions with image and text masking along with Maxi Typography in order to achieve the desired effect.

Line art –

 The trend that began in 2018 and flourished in 2019 will now evolve into fully illustrated and animated line art patterns and designs in 2020. A schematic, simplified illustration style, Line Art will be used for conveying concepts and ideas as it looks clean, elegant, and unobtrusive. It can be said that Line art will be one of the preferred decoration styles in graphic design trends 2020.

Doodling –

Started as a fun trend in the world of illustration, Doodling quickly became a hit that we see it on designs all over the web. This style helps in achieving a more informal, personalized, handcrafted, and overall fun feeling of the composition. Designers are combining real-life photos and are replacing parts of the photos with simple illustrations. This is one innovative trend that we will be seeing in 2020.

 Simplified illustrations –

Similar to Image and Text masking, using illustrations in graphic design is nothing new. Illustrations are often incorporated in designs to convey concepts and ideas and communicate messages better. This design style enables the designer to focus more on the message the design conveys than the art used in the design. Simple Illustrations will be a top choice when it comes to design trends in 2020.

Isometric Illustration –

In 2020, 3D is everything. The Capability to illustrate 3-Dimensional object on a 2D surface makes Isometric Illustrations a Design Trend to watch out for in 2020. This style will be mostly used when it comes to web design, presentation design and infographic design.

Earthy colors –

The list of Trending Design Styles cannot be completed without having a Vintage Style. Inspired by the 50’s design style, designers are using earthy color nuances along with hand drawn ink illustrations. You can find this design style used while creating brand identity, package design, typography and lettering. It seems it’s gonna be a blast from the past in 2020.
