2024 is just around the corner and (as a designer) I am going to let you in on a little secret: Graphic Designers help set the trends. Here are 9 graphic design trends to watch for in 2024.
3D Hyper-Surrealism: Prepare to be mind-blown! 3D design will take center stage, blending photorealistic elements with surreal, dreamlike visuals.
Bento Box Grids: Simplicity reigns supreme. Grid-based layouts with clear sections and minimal distractions will be key to maximizing user experience.
Cluttercore: Embrace the chaos! Expect to see maximalist designs with bold patterns, clashing colors, and unexpected juxtapositions.
Inflatable 3D: Playful and unexpected, inflatable 3D shapes will add a touch of whimsy and dimension to your designs.
Digital Destruction: Glitch effects, pixelation, and distorted textures will add a raw, edgy vibe to your visuals.
Freehand Revival: Ditch the perfectionism! Imperfect hand-drawn elements and textures will inject a touch of personality and authenticity.
Future Fusion: Sci-fi and futuristic elements will blend seamlessly with organic and natural textures, creating a sense of harmonious contrast.
Art Deco-Inspired Glass Effects: Add a touch of luxury and sophistication with reeded glass textures and metallic accents.
Barbie's Pink: Playful and unapologetic, hot pink is making a comeback, adding a pop of unexpected energy.
Bonus Trend: Eco-Conscious Design: Expect to see more designs that prioritize sustainability, with recycled materials, organic shapes, and earth-toned palettes. I have already injected this concept into several branding and packaging designs that are set to launch 2024.
Remember, these are just a few of the many exciting trends on the horizon. Stay curious, experiment, and have fun exploring the ever-evolving world of graphic design!
I hope this gives you some inspiration for your 2024 projects!
