From Strength to Strength

A lovely look at all things ‘Circus’! This trend is a vintage, nostalgic look at a bygone age of the Big Top, and a chance to illustrate the excitement of tight rope walkers with pretty decorative parasols, juggling jesters, acrobats and trapeze artists and the ring master taking his chances with the ferocious lion. Colours are celebratory, either in soft ice cream tones or bold brights to add fun and energy. Adult inspired humour, bold decorative typography and iconic graphics feature quite heavily as well as the softer fairytale fantasy element of ballerinas riding on unicorns, appealing to a much younger audience. One for all those that never want to grow up !

Och aye the Noo

Translated, it means ‘Oh yes, just now’, perfect for an ‘up and coming’ trend for 2014!

Traditional Scottish icons are adding a unique celebratory flavour, in a bid to salute its own cultural heritage. Influences of tartan, tweeds and hound’s-tooth, vintage references to the highland games, kilts, stags, Scottie dogs, red squirrels and beautiful Scottish landscapes are appearing on everything from home interiors to greetings cards. Colours synonymous with Scotland’ such as thistle and heather mauves, soft muted greens and whisky inspired earthy tones will feature quite heavily, with a bolder mix of rich reds and plums for that festive Christmas and Hogmanay twist.
