Graphic Design Trends in 2020

At littleBIG we are fortunate to work across a wide range of clients. This means we tackle all design solutions from social media tiles to national outdoor advertising campaigns. For this reason we always have our ears to the ground to ensure we keep up with the latest design trends. Here are what we think will be 5 Big Graphic Design Trends in 2020.

Cyberpunk colour schemes

Colour has always been an important part of conveying your message, and in 2020 things are set to get even bigger and brighter. Cyberpunk colour schemes are usually dark sci-fi looking scenes that have striking RIFS of colour cutting through. They are moody and bright, bringing the best of both worlds. We live in the future, technology is turning sci-fi into reality, and designers are marking Cyberpunk mainstream. Don’t miss out.

The GIF’s that keep on giving

Moving images are considerably more effective than still images when it comes to engaging a user. If you are looking to direct traffic to your website, social pages, blog etc, GIFs are the perfect way to lure your customers in. They allow you to tell a dynamic story, that cuts though the crowded online space. If a photo says 1,000 words a GIF says 10,000.

More Minimal!
Minimal has always been around doing big things with less effort, but in the last decade it has really grown. In 2020 we predict it’ll be taken to the next level as clean simple design is becoming ever more effective in getting your message out there. In our littleBIG design department our motto for 2020 is KISS (keep it simple stupid), you’ll see this really manifest in the designs coming out this year.

Be Sustainable
Hello? 2020’s arrived… and guess what, it’s time to start making the decisions that will positivity effect the environment in the long term rather than what’s easier (and often cheaper) in the short term. Us designers and all businesses can lead from the front, by choosing to use recycled, ethically and sustainably sourced materials, goods and services. 20% profits margins won’t save us when the whole world is on fire.
