1- 3D — realism
2- Generative Art
4- Going Monochrome
5- Isometric Illustrations
7- Line Art
Let’s take a look
3D — realism
It’s one of the emerging trends gaining some traction with 3D illustrations or models since 2019, as designers are loving, it will continue to grow in line with the and tools supporting it.
Generative art takes full advantage of everything that computing has to offer, producing elegant and compelling artworks that extend the same principles and goals artists have pursued from the inception of modern art. Generative art draws inspiration from modern art, Geometry, abstraction, and chance.
Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist uses a system, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention, which is set into motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a completed work of art — Philip Galanter
Augmented reality (AR) adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone. Virtual reality (VR) implies a complete immersion experience that shuts out the physical world. Sounds Interesting right! Take a look to understand more.
Augmented reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) bridge the digital and physical worlds. They allow you to take in information and content visually, in the same way you take in the world. AR dramatically expands the ways our devices can help with everyday activities like searching for information, shopping, and expressing yourself. VR lets you experience what it’s like to go anywhere — from the front row of a concert to distant planets in outer space.
A monochrome colour filter is widely used on photos or partial elements in the graphic composition. Monochrome easily creates harmony — because it’s really all one base colour. By choosing a monochromatic colour palette, you have your unifying element from the start. ‘Monochromatic’ means is that you take one basic colour and apply colour theory to create a range of hues by playing with the various tones, shades, and tints that can be created from the original.
You can easily observe isometric illustrations often in digital products because of their simplicity and functional characteristic. One of the all-time favourites is isometric. An isometric illustration is a style of drawing which uses a technique called isometric projection. Isometric drawings are not genuine 3D drawings, those are made in 2D, but they look like 3D.
This is the next big thing in UI Design in 2020. After a long period with flat design, a new bold trend emerges. Neumorphism is a new take on skeuomorphic design and went on to create an entirely new UX style. With soft shadows and lights that remind us of 3D, its a trend in its own right
Art Line is a primitive but powerful form of artistic expression. There’s a lot of power in a line, and that the art of line drawing is worth celebrating in its own right.
The innovative and modern compositions, designers are playing with typography using 3D renders, bold colour palette, metal effect, glowing effect. Brave typography can make a difference in both web design and graphic design. Lettering can be far more expressive or emotional when unrestrained.
The ‘liquid’ gradient trend has added the Uniqueness, Emotion, and Passion to the websites, poster, and even motion graphic videos, which is why its increasingly being identified with positive social tendencies. Liquid's irregularity and its flow allow the user to experiment with there designs.
