One of the main characteristics of graphic design, and in particular digital art, has to do with the fact that what is called a graphic design trend, will evaporate as quickly as it has emerged in the sector. In other words, what is imposed is intended to be replaced in a very short time.

It can be said that what in recent years seems modern, will soon be seen as a totally outdated design strategy. Now, beyond the above, we are going to focus on what can be considered a trend at the moment.
