Graphic design has changed substantially in the recent past. And design trends are bound to continue evolving in line with the changing times and evolving user expectations.
For instance, events such as the #BlackLivesMatter campaign that seeks to uproot racism from society and #MtionallyeToo, a movement against sexual abuse. Not to mention the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, will all impact future design trends.
VENNGAGE looks at some of the trends that will likely rise to the top in 2022. Moreover, predicting that branded memes, bold backgrounds, and colorful illustrations are among the top trends to watch. The list also includes the following.
1. Inclusive visuals
Inclusive visuals are all about showcasing the diversity in human life. Furthermore, it’s about sharing and thriving in our social, cultural, and other difference. Top topics here include racism, equality, equity, and bias.
2. Fun data visualizations
Data visualization isn’t a new concept in itself. However, the manner of visualization changes from generation to generation. In 2022 and beyond, we’ll see a shift to more fun visualizations. Additionally, more color and enticing animations, to keep audiences engaged.
