Like other trends that go out of style in a blink of an eye, graphic designs, whether in print or digital also easily change. In the business industry, a website with eye-catching designs is more likely to be visited more often. So, if your aim is to build a new website, it is better to know the key trends in the design industry first.
Top 4 trendy graphic designs in 2020
Graphic designs influence and create a lasting impact on your brand and website. Knowing the latest trends will help you keep the visual standards of a website that ranks. And though it might further change or improve throughout the end of 2020, it still is better to know a thing or two.
1. Muffled colour schemes
Before every year ends, a new colour always emerges, deeming it as the lucky colour of the year. Sometimes, that becomes the basis for everything we do that has colours. Over the past few years, we have seen the shift in colour trends and how it varies every year. From the bright colours of last year, the design realm has changed its hues into muffled colours by this time.
Aside from the monotonous designs that were used during the later years, graphic designers nowadays look for variations with their art. That’s why they tried using duotones which have started to garner attention since last year and is now capturing more and more audiences.
Gradients are simple and yet an effective tool in creating cool designs that you’ll always remember. Say, for example, Instagram’s logo. However, gradients require perfect execution and when not done well could look like an epic fail. To avoid that failure, here are some of the best practices on how to do gradients.
3. Interactive advances
The taste and preference of graphic designers change over time. With innovative ideas that come every year, nice and subtle elements that move has become a trend that most people actually wants to see.
To gain engagement and interactions from webpage visitors, interactive designs are becoming more popular. Transitioning between pages, changes within colours, and sharpness is quite evident. Not only does it interacts with the user, but also gains their attention and lure them into appreciating visual aesthetics. Now, the more interactive your website is, the more your visitor will stay and further explore your site.
Interactive advances not only belongs to the graphic designs of 2020 but is also the future of UI trends.
Minimalism is here to stay. Just when you thought that this trend has died, it actually did not. It was just on the verge of revamping and has re-entered the industry in 2020 again.
Now, according to a study by Microsoft, since the year 2000, when the mobile revolution began, an average person’s attention span dropped from 12 to 8 seconds. And that is actually one of the reasons why graphic designers use minimal colours and objects to convey their message.
Since minimalism became a thing, it has always been on the trend.
Enumerated above are only 4 of the trendiest graphic designs that are expected to dominate in 2020. And even with new brands and competition entering the marketplace, these trendy designs will never go out of style this year.
