Here’s another good dose of trends and inspiration for 2020 MotionGraphers.

Has 2020 just begun and you’re still lost about the visual trends in design and MotionGraphics for these 365 creative days we’ve just released? Don’t Worry! A few weeks ago we made a preview post with 5 trends that were going to be a big hit this year.

Today, already in the first month of the year, we counterattacked with 5 new trends and some examples that you have to keep in your favorites or in the chaotic hard drive of your head to succeed as a MotionDesigner in 2020.

Are you going to meet them?

New trend 1: mega-futurist patterns.

It is true that we are already in 2020 and that the future is not full of flying cars, nor is it as we were painted… but the truth is that in this year we are going to continue to be very present patterns, universes and textures inspired by a future that we have been predicting since George Orwell wrote 1984 or Apple launched the Macintosh with that dystopian spot directed by Ridley Scott.

As we saw in our recent post, video mapping is also going to be a space and discipline where to project all those repetitive patterns that fill our minds which, if you think about it, sometimes go beyond procedure.

New Trend 2: “Marvelous” fabrics

As we have seen in the recent past and in wonderful spots such as Apple’s Macbook Air, the use of Marvelous software to simulate fabrics on both people and 3D characters, as well as interacting with objects, is going to be an animation trend in 2020.

Let’s see on Vimeo and other video platforms how motion graphic designers and animators like and recreate themselves, showing the infinite possibilities offered by the simulation of fabrics in Marvelous. Haven’t you tried it yet?

New Trend 3: Minimalism at all costs

I’m sure you’ve read that one of the basic principles of design and animation is to get the impact and attention of the audience in less than 10 seconds.

That is the territory where minimalism has been playing for decades and where it will continue to play in this 2020, although with a little nuance in which the shading of some basic elements will give a touch of differential personality and more modern classic minimalism of 3D motion and animation.

Some people call this new version of minimalism a “subspecies”. In any case, the nuances are welcome because, for us, no great design principle is totally immovable.

New trend 4: Isometry in motion

If you thought that the fashion of drawing three-dimensional objects in two dimensions had passed away, you were wrong. Many visual artists, MotionGraphers, studios and brands are going to continue betting in 2020 on a technique that allows them to recreate complex universes in a smaller dimension.

Isometry allows complicated realities to be made visible, showing them in an elegant, simple and fine way. Something that is always a favorable element and to be taken into account for many of the design and animation works in which we seek to make a technological product or service with numerous processes or benefits attractive.

New trend 5: Color and neon

Yes, put on your dark glasses for work too because, in 2020, the neon world and the magenta, pink and blue colors that have flooded the advertising spots, video clips and other audiovisual works of 2019 will still be present.

Neon will continue to radiate attraction and generate futuristic, interesting and hyper-aesthetic visual environments in which thousands of designers and MotionGraphers will fall like flies in the fluorescent traps of beach bars. But they will fall with pleasure and enjoy its powerful appeal that will continue to attract us all.

Now that you’ve taken a look at five other trends that could mark the visual and creative future of 2020, it’s your turn to work and go to the screen, leaving the immaculate appearance of your monitor behind.

Don’t go crazy, you might have other ideas, prefer other styles or prefer to be you as MotionDesigner who sets the trend. In any case, cheer up and we won’t see you in the next post

You know, if you think of something visually wonderful, you have to think of Kutuko.
