Psychedelic and futuristic Designs:  

Well, this is not a new trend per se, and we saw its dominance in the music and the art scene right from the ’60s till the late ’80s. These are designs that include vibrant colors, contrasting designs, and intricate abstract illustrations that create a psychedelic effect.

You can even use retro-futuristic designs to add another layer to your graphics. These are designs that exuberate a sense of utopia through their imagery and incorporating it into your designs will make you look like you belong to the future.


Symbols have always been recognizable by the general public. Historically symbols were used in directing people or alerting them about certain things that they needed to be aware of. In 2021, you can use symbolism to create a sense of universality in your designs.

Whether it is a banner design or even an entire website’s graphic design, symbols can be added as an extra design element that can make the final output look relatable to the consumers. Symbols are very useful in conveying and transcending important information or messages that might have required a long text otherwise.
