The nautical theme is popular every summer. Characteristic trend for 2015/16 is the use of painterly brush strokes, artistic free lines, painterly waves – especially in fabric design and fashion. Children’s trends feature the adventure nautical theme with maps, boats, fun trips. The ice cream and sea side are trending too in children’s designs. We spotted many cute summer outfits with ice cream patterns.
Trending in 2015/16 are pretty mandalas. From fashion to stationery, we see these mandala images and patterns everywhere. Inspired by Islamic tiles, kaleidoscopic patterns, circular symmetry and decorative edge. Especially beautiful are the floral mandalas!

It is always good to be prepared for any occasion. Pop-in-greetings are the perfect “lifesaver” stationery for those moments when you need a thank you note, congrats on a new arrival, invite somebody or just sent an anniversary card.
We spotted some of TheInkNest graphics used in their set of Forever Young cards for children, people about to have children, or friends who act like children 😉
In this video tutorial Sabina shows how to create a cute nursery art poster with custom typography. She used the Mosaic Birds set for this project.

New exciting trend for 2015/16 we see in fashion and graphic design is the Lovely Mosaics. Characteristic of this trend are authentic tile patterns, irregular layouts, geometric and floral mix, vintage feel, pretty flowers and tiles. We can envision some mosaic inspired stationery, posters, fabrics for 2015.
Our artists were very inspired by this trend and we have new beautiful illustrations in the shop.
