2021 Displate Trends Projected

January 21, 2021 by Displate Artists Team in Illustration Hub

Got no new design ideas this year? If you suffer from a total lack of inspiration, we gladly come to the rescue. Time to plan those 12 months ahead with the trends we know will be popular on Displate. 

Funny and optimistic

Since we didn’t have too much to laugh about last year, we’ll need some positive accents to add to our lives now. Think of all the dad jokes you know, turn them into cheerful designs, and make everyone forget 2020.
