2022 is all about nostalgia. From 1960s psychedelia to 90s Y2K aesthetic, the creative world will revisit design styles from the past 60 years, and remix the old with the new. Memphis design patterns, bright color blocks, doodles, and playful shapes will bring back fond childhood memories. Y2K-inspired trends will revive the technological optimism of the late 90s with iridescent colors, low-poly CGI, bubblegum pinks, and pastel cyberpunk.
Typography trends will include expressive lettering, stately serifs, and 90s ‘Frasurbane’. Other prominent trends include parametric patterns, intricate maximalism, escapism, and grunge revival. The infographic below covers all the exciting new trends, with examples.
