Today, Adobe released Behance’s Top Three Visual Trends of 2021, highlighting core trends that captivated the creative community in 2021. The Adobe team surveyed hundreds of the most appreciated projects on Behance to identify and showcase these key trends along with inspiring creatives for the year ahead.
This year’s top visual trends for creatives are:
Creatives, like Marina Veziko and Eduardo de Floresta, are opting for bright and bold tangerine orange to embody hopefulness for the future and create hints of drama.
Pillowy surfaces and organic shapes create a sense of warmth and welcome in graphic design, 3D and illustration, such as Microsoft’s Flipgrid Backgrounds.
Branding and packaging designs that feature friendly faces, like Sorwait Opapongphun’s design for Pan-Pan donuts, are on the rise - bringing familiarity and comfort in times of uncertainty.
