Emerging Trends in 3D Design

  1. Just Have Fun: This trend invites designers to unleash their inner playfulness. Imagine a world where artistic boundaries are blurred, and your only mission is to experiment and create with joy. From inventing bizarre characters to creating tactile and physical artworks, this trend encourages you to rediscover your creative freedom.
  2. Visualize Science: Here, we see how 3D design revolutionises scientific and technical visualisation. Imagine creating precise models of DNA strands or detailed maps of weather patterns. This trend opens up new ways to understand and interact with complex scientific concepts, making it an invaluable resource for education and research.
  3. Think Maximalism: In this trend, we move beyond the conventional and explore the most expansive and richly detailed possibilities of 3D design. It’s about creating grand, colourful, complex digital worlds that challenge our perception of reality and fantasy. Maximalism in 3D is an invitation to dream big and create without limits.
