Designing for the Future: Trends in 3D Design

In the design world, trends change regularly, and it can be hard to keep up with all the different things that are happening. But that’s where trend reports come in handy! In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most popular graphic design trends that we predict will be taking the industry by storm in 2023.

3D Illustration

If you are already a well-known graphic designer or are familiar with interactive 3D apps or animation, 3D illustration might make more sense for you as a career path. Adding 3D illustrations to your toolkit can be a great way to expand your skills.

With 3D illustration, you can create three-dimensional (3D) objects from two-dimensional (2D) artwork. By adjusting the lighting, shading, rotation, and other properties of 3D objects, you can alter how they appear. 3D is really useful, especially when clients need to launch new products. But why is this technology so important, especially for product manufacturers?

By using 3D technology, clients can create products from digital files, which can be very useful because it eliminates the need for physical prototypes. In short, it reduces project time and cost. This gives manufacturers more room to experiment with designs. Companies that do not use 3D modelling technology are quickly falling behind the competition.

3D design is a complex art, it requires more than just technical skills. You also need to create a scene for these objects to be placed in.  With 3D design, you should consider the composition of the scene when creating your work.

A 3D illustration can be created in various ways using different software programs, including Maya, Houdini, Cinema 4D, blender, Daz studio, and more. However, all 3D design involves manipulating points and surfaces in three dimensions. To achieve your desired results, 3D software tools provide a wide range of features without becoming repetitive or time-consuming.

Textures & Material

The popularity of virtual materials and fabrics is another highly prevalent trend in our report. Using 3D software like Substance 3D, we can reproduce textures with pinpoint accuracy, from brickwork imperfections to silk’s smooth sheen. This is an opportunity that many designers are taking advantage of.

This trend is based on the use of 3D printing to create models of potential designs or to experiment with different materials. Using different textures and materials to visualize objects is just one way a graphics designer makes 3D-modeled shapes look realistic.

Abstract Modern 3D Background

Backgrounds in 3D can be extremely realistic or cartoonish, depending on the design. They can also be used to create a more sophisticated or polished look or to simply add some extra visual interest. Whether you’re looking for a simple, elegant background to set the tone for your design, or something more elaborate and colourful to stand out, there’s a background style to fit your needs.

Rainbow Colour is in Trend

Is there anything that embraces diversity more than the rainbow? The rainbow colour palette finds its place nowadays in almost every type and medium of 3D design due to the growing awareness of the importance of being tolerant of diversity in all its forms.

Nature-Inspired Designs

The ever-popular nature-inspired graphics will continue to be in demand as designers continue to find beauty and harmony in the pairing of real nature with fictional elements. We’ll see more combinations of real nature with imaginary elements as well.

There are a lot of different design trends going on in 2023, which means that there will be a lot of different styles to choose from. There’s also a lot of experimentation going on, which means that there will be a lot of new and innovative designs to see. Overall, it looks like this year is going to be very exciting for graphic designers!


These are just a few of the trends outlined in our survey. To get a better understanding of these trends, and others that are leading the way,  you should talk to expert designers at Fast and Solid Solutions and ask them what’s happening in the industry.
