Graphic Design Blog About 2022 Design Trends

Consumers look at graphic design differently as change constantly evolves with time. Art studios and design agencies are doing the same. The Studio Bridge pushes itself by thinking differently when it comes to our creative process.

Here we are forecasting a handful of graphic design trends in 2022. Read on…

DESIGN TREND #1

Bringing back the Retro

To this day, we are still witnessing creative influences from the ’90s (or even way back to the ’60s). It’s truly bringing back the retro vibe to the new era. From simple emojis, old wireframes, hand-drawn doodles, pure one tone or bright colors and lively or playful shapes. Vibrance comes to play.

DESIGN TREND #2

Preserving Parametric elements

Representing design elements of 2022, patterns are at the forefront of adding visual interests on backgrounds, breaking solid colors, and amplifying movements through geometry. This trend, when preserved (and continues to evolve), can best represent the complexity of any subject matter, turning clutter or noise into an appealing visual treatment.

DESIGN TREND #4

Turning Vectors flat

Graphic designers, illustrators and animators turn onto vector artwork as it provides limitless possibilities in expressing their creative thinking. Setting the design standards in the past two decades (and even in the early 1960s), flat vector still gives that extraordinary appeal.

Twisting Fonts

At times, things can be beautifully off and imperfect. Getting the right method in using typography to showcase your headlines, brand name, taglines and all those that need emphasis, perfectly come to play.
