ADVANCED / VIRTUAL REALITY
Leading developers are working hard to integrate virtual reality into everyday life. Communication, receiving services and purchasing goods will not be the only areas of implementation. These new technologies fit nicely into the entertainment niche.

Particular attention of smart technologists is turned to robotics and artificial intelligence, neural networks, entertainment industry and e-sports. Along with minimalism, a bet is placed on optical illusions.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Artificial intelligence technologies will continue to develop rapidly: its ability to learn significantly exceeds human capabilities. This can help solve complex problems or even replace human labor. As a result, this nuance will affect the business and the end user.

At the same time, public concern over the ethical side of the use of developments in this area is growing. In 2020, there may be a wide discussion about the use of AI technologies and their impact on human rights and freedoms.

BEST HOUSE AESTHETICS
This year, the German direction in design called the Bauhaus received a second wind a century after its appearance. Its main features: functionality and minimalism inspired designers and artists in the development of virtual reality technologies in the field of painting, architecture and graphic design.

Flat or half-flat design gives you more options for interactivity and complex transitions. Many predict a real breakthrough in 2020 for this trend. If you need relevant illustrations in different subjects made in this style, look at them in the DepositPhotos service.

Aesthetics Bauhaus
BRUTALISM OF THE DIGITAL WORLD
Brutalism is another architectural trend transferred to digital reality. This design style has recently gained its popularity thanks to Instagram and has become a symbol of rebellious spirit. Rough aesthetics replaced the clearly calibrated and cleaned forms. Design models in the style of Brutalism strongly contrast with familiar analogues, violate the rules, but still do not go beyond the scope of aesthetics.

MUED / NON-SKY SHADES
In contrast to the traditional futuristic shades, a trend has emerged for calm and unsaturated palettes. In 2020, beige and monochrome tones will become relevant. Naturalness, minimalism and a sense of proportion replaced the neon, sour-green and purple colors.

discreet shades
A balance is being sought between the natural color palette and the colors of technological styles. The light palette is increasingly used in modern design projects.
