They may be irrelevant but they are always memorable!
Good design can tell a story. Great design makes that story unforgettable. For 2021, many graphic designers are looking to ditch abstract visuals in favour of quirky characters. And the more personality these characters embody, the more memorable they become.
Concept illustrations lie at the heart of this trend, providing not only character poses but personality. It’s why these styles can range from detailed cross-hatching to simplified shapes and colours or humorous photographs. The concepts themselves… suit-wearing animals and anthropomorphic products, signal the much-anticipated return of humour and weirdness in the months to come.
We could all do with some humour!
