The Depositphotos team recently released its traditional interactive report on visual trends that will determine the course of design and visual communication this year. Along with the 9 main trends of 2021, you will find more trends backed up by insights from creative agencies around the world. The project also features links to small featured collections for each trend based on keywords.

In 2021, the visual trends report by Depositphotos was titled Living a New Reality. With it, we wanted to highlight the significant and even shocking transformations the world has undergone in 2020. Visual communication was no exception, which was what we explored as we put together our research.

The featured trends such as Symbols of Optimism, Wellness First, Virtual Empathy, and other trends prove to us that humanity does not lose its good spirits and can successfully adapt to new circumstances.

In this big blog collection, you’ll find photos and videos that initially inspired the Visual Trends 2021 project. All the images are selected by our content curators to help you discover the latest trendy content from our library, new themes, and new ideas that you can work with for your upcoming projects.
