Here we are! 2020… the future.
But where are the flying cars, the humanoid robots, the teleportation portals…? Well, uh. This we don’t know.
What we do know, though, is what 2020 will be made of visually, from a digital standpoint. So come with us for a trip in the future and, together, let’s shape 2020.— Discover graphic trends of 2020
What would we be without our imagination? Without escapes on reality?
We’d be bored.
Hopefully, we now have the power to materialize and give life to our craziest thoughts and ideas. All of us. Not just the massive cinema franchises alone.
We, the people, too. We can create our very own universes, tell our very own stories. With new layers and dimensions. What used to be in our heads, can now be shared. The level of fidelity is up to your ambition.
And when limits are overcome, rules are bound to be broken.— Close
Digital design is giving Bauhaus a fresh new look. This is a comeback to what we call complex simplicity: universes made of pure shapes with a modern twist and the ability to come alive through dynamic and balanced animations thanks to video and motion design combining beauty and usefulness. Yet, it remains very technical just as the roots of the Bauhaus movement suggest.— Close
Scale it, shrink it, skew it, warp it, split it, flip it, distort it then do it again. Don’t get us wrong: books are cool but just a bit too static for us. Today, fonts are alive, animated and will follow all of our wills and needs. They alone can become the key element of a visual strategy and eventually a weapon of choice for mass distinction. Digital channels are their playground and an ideal canvas for fonts to evolve. So why hold back?— Close
“Satisfying videos”. There is something odd and inexplicable with these videos that took the web by storm a couple of years ago. The way they flow, the way they live in such a perfectly animated and orderly fashion can immediately bring peace to one’s mind. And this is something designers love to do: bring peace to people’s mind.— Close
We are constantly surrounded by what is called visual noise, if not pollution, with our attention randomly drifting from one visual call to the next eyeball aggression. Sounds a bit exaggerated but not too far-fetched.
Hopefully, monochromatic design is here to bring back some visual peace in your daily environment by putting composition at the center of the artistic vision. And who said you needed colors to tell stories?
Lights, shapes and levels alone will perfectly do.— Close
What’s the most past/future thing you can think of? If that’s Cyberpunk, we agree (and so does Mr Musk). It is making a big comeback in 2020: videos games, automotive and movies industries have already paved the way of its revival. But this time, digital has the power to lead the trend.
Street life, neon lights. From vivid pink to bright blue sky. Eighties on one’s mind.— Close
Data can be frightening at times. It’s a faceless technology whose usages are growing exponentially in our day-to-day life. So as data is taking a bigger and bigger part in our lives, there’s a need for people to associate the concept and the technology with a visual representation. 2020 will obviously be a milestone in the completion of this ambitious design mission.— Close
It’s already been a long time since Apple shook down the design world with Skeuomorphism. Now old and mostly gone, it undeniably set the path we’re still taking today. Yes today, we can experience three-dimensional objects, life-like textures and animations that feel more alive than we sometimes do. 3D doesn’t care about physics: it invites us to experiment and interact even more. Digital and nature become two very tangible things that prove we’re always looking for matters that matter, those with flavors of nature in their texture (now try reading this out loud). Let’s all take a second to thank video, motion-design and Social Medias for propelling this trend.— Close
You can’t be a good explorer without a flashlight to drive your curiosity. So explore textures through light reflection and angles, through different shapes, through different spectrum of colors… But explore! Light will play a key role in 2020 as a genuine tool to promote interaction. It isn’t anything new as cinema, fashion or architecture has been playing with it for decades now, but as web technology evolves, new possibilities arise for Web Designers and the interest for light-based design goes exponentially.— Close
Needless to say imagination is limitless and can take you out of this world we all share. Sometimes even further and quite often further than too far (still there?). But that’s the beauty of it, isn’t it? To be taken to very, very special places. Places like here, where 3D puppies shots lasers with their eyes through a pouring rain of what looks to be candies. For 2020, just be prepared (and quite open-minded). This might very well happen.— Close
