My Top 5 Favorite Design Trends for 2024: A Designer's Perspective


As we approach 2024, I'm excited about the emerging trends in design that are infusing creativity, personality, and authenticity into visual communication. Here are my top 5 favorites, along with some personal insights based on my recent projects:

1. Natural Materials:

There's a growing appreciation for the organic beauty and inherent texture of natural materials like wood, stone, and textiles. This trend resonates with consumers seeking authenticity and connection with the natural world. I have incorporated Kraft paper into hang tags for a woodworker, and the result was stunning! The earthy texture perfectly complemented the client's handcrafted products and conveyed a sense of eco-consciousness.

2. Brand Illustrations:

Custom illustrations are becoming increasingly popular, adding a unique and memorable touch to brand identities. I've enjoyed creating personalized images for logos that are not just visually appealing but also authentic and relatable to the brand's target audience. This versatility allows for consistent application across various mediums, from websites and social media to packaging and advertising.

3. Doodles:

There's a playful resurgence of doodles in design, adding a touch of whimsy and human connection. This trend invites us to embrace imperfection and celebrate creativity. In recent projects, I've incorporated doodles to express my personality and inject fun into otherwise formal designs. The results have been delightful and well-received by clients.

4. Serif Fonts:

After years of dominance by sans-serif fonts, serifs are making a comeback. These classic fonts add sophistication and character to designs, offering a timeless appeal. I've been experimenting with serifs to create a unique brand identity for my own business, and I'm loving the results! The added personality truly set my brand apart.

5. Motion:

Motion design is no longer a luxury reserved for large companies. With the abundance of user-friendly tools, incorporating animation and video into design is accessible and impactful. I'm thrilled that brands can now showcase their stories and products in motion without huge budgets. Gone are the days of painstakingly crafting GIFs in Photoshop; now, we have the tools to create engaging motion graphics quickly and efficiently.

These are just a few of the exciting trends shaping design in 2024. As a designer, I'm constantly exploring and experimenting with new ideas, and I'm eager to see how these trends continue to evolve and inspire creativity in the coming year.
