UNPLUGGED: Play becomes a serious issue, offering us a healthy escape. Research increasingly suggests the importance of investing less time in work and technology and more time in the natural pleasures of life. Outdoor pursuits drive this trend from surfing to mountaineering and hiking. It’s all about embracing nature’s outdoor creations and finding the perfect personal Utopia.
HOLOGRAPHIC SKY: The fusion of luminescent colors and futuristic textures present the idea of exploration and escapism. Looking to the holographic colors nature creates, from iridescent oil spills, colorful beetle shells, the aurora borealis to beautifully coloured rocks, gems and minerals. The bouncing of light off different textures makes prints seem digitalised and surreal.
WORD UP: Typography prints and graphic lettering bring a feeling of youthful rebellion through slogan statements, quotes and subversive phrases. It’s all about having a ‘don’t care attitude’ and saying what you want in written form. Altogether a fresh direction for text based prints, implementing contemporary unrefined street art typography techniques.
PSYCHEDELIC BEACH: This trend explores an imaginary world inspired by Augmented Reality, designs celebrate nature’s wonders in a sensual and exotically psychedelic direction. Defined by vibrant palettes, vivid tropical patterns and prints rendered by digital engineering, with warped visual cues borrowed from nature like sunsets and tropical undergrowth to create a hyper-real perception
TEXTURED EARTH: In response to our growing urban existence, this trend explores a new mindfulness of natural wellbeing, as it looks to our natural environment. Having lost our connection with Mother Earth, it is time to restore the balance. Print designs listen to the sounds of the Earth from mossy landscapes to vast mountains, designs are grounded in dramatic scenery and expansive landscapes with unrefined textures taking inspiration from the earth’s surface.
COSMIC WANDERLUST: Discoveries are made everyday, everywhere by explorers and scientists, yet there are infinite discoveries still to be made in the mysterious universe we live in. This trend presents the idea of space exploration and space tourism. Looking to the stars and galaxies for otherworldly inspiration and experience. Graphics and prints are detailed and reflective, representing space constellations, movement and our intrigue with the unknown.
GLOBAL COMMUNE: This graphic print trend explores cross-cultural layering that connects us to a globalised world. The four corners of the world are trawled for a range of dynamic and eclectic directions inspired by a passion for handcrafted and centuries-old techniques. Inspired by free-thinking and an appreciation for craftsmanship, this theme is a curated collection of textured surfaces, mixed patterns, and rich tapestries.
