Retro design has been making a comeback in recent years and it doesn’t look like the styles of the past are going to fade. Retro graphic design is inspired by the decades gone by, particularly the second half of the 20th century.
A popular trend that we are seeing is halftone—a graphic design technique used to reproduce an image by using dots of varying lengths with one or more colors.
We are seeing high demand for halftone graphics like this vintage halftone textures pack by ghostlypixels on Elements, which includes 10 texture files, captures the look and feel of old-school prints, and provides an authentic and classic feel for customers’ projects.
Adding texture to a project can really bring the project to life, it creates an atmosphere and genre for the project to be identified with, and when presenting to clients this is an extremely important dynamic to have in the design.

So, if you have high-quality halftone graphics, this is a great time to add them to Elements. Don’t forget to title your item with a functional description and use tags to describe the specific features of the item, like below:
The Y2K aesthetic is definitely back and has us feeling super nostalgic, as creatives, creators and social media users alike rediscover the charm of this fun futuristic style.
The resurgence of the Y2K aesthetic began on social media, therefore customers are looking for colorful funky Y2K designs like this Instagram pack, which features bold colors, retro frames, and chunky fun fonts.
The hashtag #Y2K has over 3.2 million posts on Instagram alone and creators are using Y2K – inspired fonts, textures, and graphics to bring their retro designs to life.

2000s design was also defined by its tacky textures such as plastic and metallics and this holographic chrome logo mock-up by pixelbuddha is a great example of how customers can easily integrate this look into their own designs.
When uploading your content to Elements, tagging your items with the following can help customers find your work:
We have reached an age where high-quality live content is easy to create. Anyone with a smartphone and internet connection can start live streaming with very minimal effort. You only have to look at social media platforms like Instagram to see the demand for live content. With more than 500 million people using Instagram Stories every day and over 4 million businesses advertising on stories every month.
With so many people creating in this space, customers are looking for ways to make their content stand out from the crowd. One of the easiest ways to do this is to integrate professional stream overlays. We are seeing a high demand for stream overlays on Elements as they can help customers to increase production quality.
“Stream overlays can be as simple as placing a logo somewhere on the screen. They can also be complex, multi-screen animated motion graphics that are triggered when followers interact with a stream”, says Mark Brodhuber, Envato’s Video Content Specialist.
Either way overlays and graphics are usually customizable, enabling customers to tailor the elements to differentiate their content.

With a limited supply of fresh, high-quality content to meet this current demand, we see this as an opportunity for our Authors to create more content in this space. Need some inspo? We love this 90s-inspired twitch overlay template by Sko4 and this simple yet stylish customizable stream overlay.
Don’t forget to use tags to describe the specific features of your item, like below:
- Stream Overlay
- Overlay Elements
Save The Date
It’s wedding season! We are seeing a spike in demand for save-the-date graphics. Customers are currently looking for print templates with multiple functions like this one, which includes save-the-date, invitations, thank you cards, and table settings as a package.
This is an exciting opportunity for Authors to create fresh designs. We have a lot of floral wedding designs on Elements, but the range of wedding themes is much larger than that.

When adding relevant items to Elements, consider using the following terms when titling, describing, or tagging your content.
- Save the date
- Wedding Invitation
There are also several global events happening this month that drive huge customer demand. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, The World Cup, and Thanksgiving are just some of them. If you have high-quality items in these categories then now is the time to upload them.
Happy creating! We look forward to seeing your amazing work on Elements. We’ll keep you in the loop with future creative stock item opportunities.
