Looking for creative inspiration for your 2024 strategic planning?
This will help. Today, Adobe has published its annual Creative Trends Report, which incorporates insights from Adobe’s 30 million+ Creative Cloud users, in order to determine rising visual styles of interest, which look set to resonate with audiences in the new year.
Based on its research, the Adobe team has established four creative trends that are worthy of note:
- Calming Rhythms – Fluid and flowing forms that soothe the senses and support emotional balance
- Wonder and Joy – Visuals that inspire a sense of awe, joy, and enchantment
- Dynamic Dimensions – Where all dimensions and types of content seamlessly merge
- The New Nostalgia – Contemporary interpretations of vintage styles
Adobe’s 22-page report, which you can download here (with email sign-up), provides more insight into each of these trends, along with various examples, and data that explains why they’re set to gain more momentum.
There are handy notes and insights for each, which help to illustrate how to use them in your process.
Interestingly, a lot of the images used by Adobe in the report look like they’ve been created by generative AI. I don’t know that they have, but it is worth noting the composition in this regard, as another potential means to tap into these trends.
The report provides some interesting perspective on rising visual trends, which could help in your planning. Maybe one of these resonates especially well with your branding, or aligns with what your target audience has been sharing.
Either way, some additional, data-backed considerations, which could be helpful in your process.
