Where objects were once drawn they now flow, bounce and burst. Edges that used to be flat now have crunch, squidge and sheen. As the gap between the real and the virtual grows ever smaller, 3D design presents one of the most exciting frontiers in visual culture. Whether in gaming, product design, fashion or art, you’ll likely have noticed the rise of 3D design.

If you’re a creative approaching the world of 3D for the first time, you’re probably full of questions and within the 3D Trends Report, we hope to answer these possible questions. Surveying the length and breadth of work currently being created, we’ve identified a handful of trends we believe are leading the conversation, artists and ideas making waves in the world of 3D, and hints as to where the industry might be heading next.

Head into our report to discover current trends dominating visual creation, a case study of how 3D can be implemented in a cultural and commercial context, emerging trends to note, and discover how Adobe Substance 3D can elevate your future 3D work.
