Design trends that “make it POP”
While an elitist Kardashian fights to keep the filter, real people of the world push to ensure that imagery is real and representative.
This trend will speak loud and proud for years to come as people more strongly speak their truth.
We love this trend as it mirrors a move to give all people a voice and particularly those who have stayed silent.

High power psychedelics did not get stuck in the 1970s. This trend has travelled forward in time, though with a bit more finesse, as these unapologetic patterns and colours take on abstract dimensions.
Far more like fractal images this time around, abstract psychedelics take us into spaces where colour really does “pop” as we enter into iridescence.
We love the explosion of colour and how this trend immediately draws attention.
Symbols are iconic in the now as pictures do the talking in communication currency. Iconography is set to continue jumping off the page and will be one of the top cover stories.
These design features are where words and visuals meet but the trick is to capture a single-minded message or the waters become mud.
We love decoding the message behind the symbol as brands craft their narratives more carefully than before.
