This year promises some exciting new trends within the graphic design industry. This year you’ll see a nod to retro designs tied in with the 3D elements that are making a splash thanks to the metaverse. Needless to say, there are plenty of new things to try this year when it comes to graphic design for your business. Let’s see what 2022 graphic design trends we can look forward to!
NFTs? Metaverse? Web 3.0? If you’ve heard these terms bouncing around over the past year you know that there are talks of our world becoming even more 3D. Updates from Adobe are making it possible to dip your toes into the 3D world and start making your own three-dimensional artwork. And while it was all about realistic proportions a while ago, artists are now exploring new styles and are moving boundaries which results in many refreshing visuals.
Back to the 90’s and Early 2000’s
Millennials rejoice! This year promises grainy visuals, bubbly typography, and so much colour. Mixed geometric shapes and thick outlines are coming back with a vengeance. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the bold visuals of the past. With the difficult past two years, it’s no doubt that people are appreciating a touch of nostalgia and remembrance of simpler times!
Eco Friendly Natural
Contrasting to the bright and bold elements of the nineties era, a more simple design is still the first choice for some brands and people. Earthy colours, hand-drawn logos, and simple yet effective typography convey a natural aesthetic. The main elements of this style bring you closer to nature than most other styles do. It works great for organic products and businesses that have an eco-friendly element.
Modern Retro was definitely one of the biggest styles from 2021 and will probably only grow this year. Think 70’s but modern, whatever that means! It’s a versatile style so there are many ways it can be applied but a simple google search will showcase what most view as “modern retro”.
While these graphic design styles have been around for years and likely years to come, we find that design trends are cyclic and can end up being quite timeless. Ready for a rebrand? We also offer design services and would be happy to hear about your project. Get in touch with our team today!
