Although it’s already the middle of 2019, it’s always good to keep an eye on updates and the latest graphic design trends. As we live in colorful and erratic times, it gets more challenging to satisfy hungry customer’s eyes. We know that graphic design trends are like the weather, and in this year, a wind of change brought more colors, unspeakable shapes, and futuristic techniques.
To begin with, you might ask: why is it important to follow up with the design trends, if for example, you’re not a designer yourself. Well, if you own a brand or you are a part of a company, you should always strive for improvement. Visual representation is fundamental in times of electric consumption and eye-catching campaigns. So, in this article, we want to briefly introduce (or remind) you top 5 graphic design trends that are shaping this year’s creative landscape.
Yes, 2019 is the year of new and daring designs. Designs that don’t fit into the box or canvas. So, prepare for 2019 with these five trends:

2019 encourages you do not only think outside the box but also create way beyond traditional norms. Designers mix and match 3D compositions with typography, different shapes, and depths. It makes a piece look alive and natural, not to mention, it’s an excellent way to attract consumers’ attention. Now you can play with dimension and bring a new light on your work.
2019 is like an indomitable spirit that stormed in every part of our lives. From politics and social matters to graphic design and composition. And when we say vivid colors, it’s not an intensively red apple or sun-bright lemon. Colors don’t necessarily have to match objects, thereby every detail comes as a bizarre dream. Artists take on some ancient art styles and adapt them to fit the needs of an open-minded and enthusiastic consumer. For example, pop art, impressionism, art deco, and other forms are thriving in a more colorful and powerful light.
Futurism in colors, shapes, and patterns. Futurism is taking graphic design by storm, and you are likely to see more of abstract forms and rather cold color pallets. Similar to other trends, it’s also well-combined with long-lived art styles and ground design rules.
As minimalism becomes more popular among modern people, designers incorporate it to their works too. Although many believe that minimalism has to be black and white, in 2019 we will see many different ideas. Colorful focal details attract attention and help to direct consumers in the desired direction.

When you see such a design, it engages with your imagination and allows you to become a part of the designing process. It can look dreamy and bizarre, but the purpose of such an original piece is to start communication between work and consumer. It can be a static image with striking details that don’t even match. These kinds of illustrations include chaotic techniques, sharp cuts, and color range. It can look like the most beautiful art or make no sense at all.
2019 came as a breath of fresh air. It’s young, modern, and ready to shake old and dusty norms. The same with graphic design. If you want your brand to stand out and attract more customers, then a proper design strategy is a must. However, it depends on the audience and its priorities, but these trends will definitely give you deserved attention. So refresh your brand and make it stand out.
