Visual content provider Shutterstock has this week published its latest listing of key design trends which it expects will have a major impact in 2020.
Shutterstock’s annual trend reports are based on shifts that it’s seeing in the usage of its platform – Shutterstock hosts over 300 million images, and 16 million video clips, which are utilized in a range of ways across the web by marketers, artists, advertisers and more.
As per Shutterstock’s CMO Lou Weiss:
“This year’s data points toward the pursuit of meaning, happiness, and opportunity in new, creative projects – traits that may be reflective of the uncertainty in our climate and the year ahead.”
Certainly, climate change has been high on the agenda in the first weeks of 2020 – could these trends be linked to more global changes like this?
Regardless, given Shutterstock’s popularity, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more indicative measure of coming visual shifts.
