Revolving around the categories of time and space, Shutterstock has revealed what six creative trends it believes will be popular in 2022, with weird and wonderful titles such as Fantastic (14th Century). The Marcarbe, Way Out West, On The Road Again, Cyberpunk is Not Dead, and What's Cooking. 

While some trends we expected to see, such as Cyberpunk (with the recent revival of The Matrix and the birth of the metaverse), there are some we didn't expect (did you know dinosaurs were so popular in Chile?). You can dive deep into each of the predictions in an interactive universe with your very own avatar on the Shutterstock website.
