Why Are Patterns Great Web Products to Sell?

Patterns are used in all of the projects. People buy patterns to make print on the fabric, wrapping, child and hipster items, various cloth, wallpaper, advertising posters, illustrations, and other projects. These web products help to boost your business thanks to the effect they make, such as: 

  • Cognitive - provides the acquisition of knowledge about your project as a form of fine art, features artistic and figurative thinking;
  • Practical - promotes the mastery of basic artistic skills and practical skills;
  • Creative - stimulates imagination, providing spiritual and aesthetic self-improvement, enrichment of the emotional sphere, development of artistic abilities, tastes, expansion of worldview;
  • Social - contributes to understanding the relationship of art with the natural and cultural environment.

Essential Motion Graphics Elements To Focus On

For a good reason, the pattern allows web designers to express their creativity and give free rein to their imagination. Flexible, offering countless stylistic possibilities, these images naturally create a link with the Internet user.

Thus, they can be placed as a central element of a website or be used as simple decorative background elements.

To make your artworks popular, you need to follow these trends:

  1. 3D effect. The depth promotes an immersive and extremely attractive experience for visitors. Gradient and shading effects arouse interest and encourage longer navigation on the page. In fact, 3D illustrations make sites more hypnotic.
  2. Minimalism. While it is not new, minimalism is being taken to the extreme in 2021. It always focuses on simplicity and gets to the point. 
  3. Nostalgic for vintage. Here's a trend that directly appeals to our nostalgic feelings. The symbols of the 90s are making a comeback and reveal themselves in today's web design. This trend combines the style of structures and the very basic codes of the time with current technology. The integration of this 90s style thus exploits the retro creativity of web designers.
  4. While graphic trends clearly tend towards pastel colors, web design gives itself the freedom to be a little more experimental. The year 2021 thus offers itself the luxury of going beyond chromatic trends as such. It tends towards experimenting with strong color mixtures. The combinations are surprising and aim to create drastic effects that are very different from what we usually see. 
  5. Textures. By seeking to move towards ever more real in the virtual world, web design 2020 will increasingly focus on textures. The visuals will thus be anchored in reality, almost solid. It will be possible to see the grain of the wood and the folds of the fabric. People can use these types of patterns, whether for the page backgrounds, for the banners, or for promoting the products.

In 2021, these web design trends will surely be valued. Be careful, however: relying on trends does not mean limiting your creativity, quite the contrary. To showcase your talent and earn money with TemplateMonster without delay.
