3. Parallax in motion design

Parallax is basically a set of different layers of graphics that move at different speeds while scrolling. This creates a very enchanting, eye-pleasing effect as if the content had an actual depth while everything is placed in one dimension. This design trend has swept away the design world with its magic.

4. Multicolour soft gradient.

Be it websites, be it static posts, the multi colour soft gradient background is in high demand everywhere. Graphic designers are adjusting their font visibility based on the background more than its vice versa.

No longer do things have to go together. Brands are adding more personality to items and an explosion of mismatched colours is seeping into luxury items. These mix matched colour palettes are a huge hit this year. Designers are very happy to see two contrast design trends gaining popularity simultaneously as it gives them the variety they often crave for in their work.

Contrasting trends, trends within trends and re-emerging trends have so far been the design theme of 2023. What are your thoughts? Do let us know.
