Graphic Design in the Future

graphic design

Technology changes so quickly and right there trailing closely behind are the trends that define design. We've gone from stone carvings to elaborate 3D visual effects with the last few decades jet propelling art into an ultra modern science for the mind.

What will a logo look like in 2030? First we have to think of the medium that people might be using by then. I believe that we will no longer be connected to devices and they will either be worn or implemented into our bodies somehow. According to Science Fiction movies the future has a lot of holographic images everywhere. Will flat 2D design become obsolete?

With the rise of virtual reality will experiences no longer be third party? In other words will going to movies actually be to experience the movie through digital augmentation. Could logos become more than just an image but also a feeling, a scent, a sound?

Mobile applications might become downloadable through nanotechnology that is injected into your bloodstream somehow. You might have to upgrade hardware that is installed in your brain. Maybe design will disappear only to become a uniform tool for a totalitarian society.

It's interesting to look at what is achievable today then theorize the endless possibilities laid forth to an upcoming generation of artists who will bridge the gap between reality and realism.
