5 Graphic Design Trends You Should Know About in 2020

Being in the know of what trends are going to be hot for the rest of the year is essential for any brand trying to look different and be a leader in a particular style.

Here are some of the trends that will bring a significant impact on the world and that you should jump on before everybody notices where it's headed.

80's Look

The old is new again! Or at least it is with designs.

The use of fonts with that retro touch and neon colors is going to be popping up more and more on social media and brand campaigns.

80's textures will also have a significant breakthrough in early 2020.

Synthwave retro is a trend that started in the '80s but started to reappear after Hollywood began to make movies based on that decade.

With hits like Stranger Things, Synthwave has started to come back from the dead.

Don't be surprised if you start seeing brands using this style more often on social media with flashy colors to incentivize engagement.

3D Objects and Glossy Colors

This trend will, without a doubt, be an essential trend this 2020!

Color explosions and 3d modeling will be everywhere. If you want your graphics to stand out, this is the right way to go.

This trend will have an enormous protagonism on digital platforms like Instagram since it gives you the possibility to bring to life all of your 3D creations.

If you're in love with modern-looking websites, we recommend you check out the libraries of Three.js since it offers the possibility to integrate 3D models to sites to get interactive experiences.

The result you get from 3D modeling, and glossy objects are catchy and can get people curious fast.

If you're trying to make your products stand out, this is an excellent way of doing it!

Backgrounds Based on Semirealistic Textures

Simulating textures like paintings and marble will give an elegant and modern aesthetic with some flow to any brand looking for a makeover.

It's suitable for websites since you can play with the movement and colors of the textures to make it the right amount of exciting and professional.

It's also versatile enough to be used in presentation cards and videos, so you won't have to worry about that!


The ultra-minimalist design only uses what's necessary, which means that you'll be seeing a limited pallette color and simple shapes to create a recognizable identity.

Turning down any additional elements makes all of the pieces have a purpose.

To create an ultra-minimalist design, you'll need a considerable amount of white space/ negative, a color scheme, and some basic geometric shapes.

It's is perfect for any design in your company since it's simple enough to be used anywhere, ranging from websites to packaging.

Handmade Illustration

The use of fonts and designs made by hand will give any image a unique feel that will make it stand out from the crowd.

It ranges anywhere from a simple material design up to images worthy of being hanged on your wall.

And since it's custom made, it can be tailored to any place you want, be it digital or on paper.

By knowing these trends, you'll be one step ahead of other brands still thinking of what to do in 2020!
