Mystic Design Trends
Portrait for Kelsie RimmerBy Kelsie Rimmer  |  Updated November 19, 2020

Over the last few years, there’s been an increased interest in mystical, other-worldly design trends such as spirituality, astrology, witchcraft, magic and cosmic design. One of the most unique influences in the graphic design industry this year, mystic beliefs and practices such as the occult have slowly crept into the mainstream design world, infiltrating many facets of visual design with iridescent colours, spiritual symbols and motifs, as well as ethereal textures and patterns that evoke a feeling of the unknown.

With further innovations in science, philosophy and spirituality guiding the popularity of practices like astrology and tarot, mystical themes have been popping up across many types of design assets and templates, including event invitations, stationery, logos, branding and interior decor.

If you want to add a magical touch to your next creative project, here are some of the top mystic design items available on Envato Elements.

Astrology & Spirituality

While astrology is by no means a new trend, astrological ideas and practices have been absolutely dominating pop-culture this year. There’s been a running theme in the media around millennials and their supposed affiliation with and love of astrology, which is thought to be connected with a desire for control in a time of economic and political uncertainty.

Based on Zodiac signs, nature, crystals, and spiritual symbols and imagery, the tropes associated with astrology are becoming increasingly popular on platforms like Instagram. For that reason astrological design can be a familiar, yet fresh way to add a mystical touch to your work. Look to the stars with these top astrology related items available on Envato Elements
