Top 100 Art & Design Trends in October

From Digital Notepad Keyboards to Spent Grain Beer Package

— October 24, 2020 — Art & Design
The October 2020 art & design trends focus on a plethora of themes -- from helping consumers physically and environmentally to serving a purely aesthetic purpose. Many of these artful innovations come in several formats, such as new packaging, decor, and much more.

A notable example this month is the conceptual 'Ouverture' keyboard that makes the need of paper obsolete. It digitalizes writing down notes with an attachment on the side of a keyboard. Another great design innovation of the month stems from an environmental perspective. The Trebodur organic material has biodegradable capabilities and reuses matter that would have otherwise gone to waste. The material replaces plastic rings that keep cans together and is made from spent grain materials sourced from the brewing process for a circular solution.
