Design Trends on Social Media That Will Dominate 2020

Design was once defined as ‘Intelligence Made Visible’. Good design raises visibility, helping your communication stand out as well win the audience’s love and trust.

A great design suited to the brand does volumes to speak of the company and its offerings’ quality and positioning. The following are some of the design trends in the social media sphere to watch out for in the upcoming year, 2020. 

Muted Colours

Muted colours shall rule the roost in the year, 2020, with designers straying from vivid and bold colours to more sedate ones, desaturated with complimentary colours or a black and white template. 

Colour Gradients

Gradients shall hold prominence this year. And will find unique applications, through colour filters, depth and texture. 

Abstract Illustrations

Imaginative and abstract illustrations shall hold precedence in the New Year. Simple illustrations shall no longer, hold  the kind of pre-dominance that they once did, when they were thought to be attractive and endearing.

Heavy Font

Heavy fonts shall be in vogue all this year, juxtaposed against backgrounds that are pale and are of sedate colour. 

Flowing Lines and Shapes

Flowing lines and shapes used with heavy fonts, are slated to be a new trend, this year. These shapes give a natural, flowing effect to the overall design.
