These striking creative trends will define 2023

As we approach the end of they year, everyone's starting to gaze into their crystal ball to predict the creative trends of 2023. Based on what's been emerging in the recent months, broader social themes and some pure guess work, we can get an idea of what we might see in next 12 months.

This list of creative trends contains some predictions that probably won't cause any surprises, while others might be complete new to you. Only time will tell whether they come to define 2023. Sometimes predictions hit the mark, but sometimes major developments take us by surprise. For example AI image generation was already developing in recent years, but few predicted the scale of the explosion we saw this year (see how to use DALL-E 2 for more on that).
