Graphic Design Trends 2013: Pocket Prints

Funky patterns on T-shirt breast pockets is a popular graphic design trend according to Stylesight. The “Pocket Prints” graphic design trend was spotted in leading streetwear, skate and surfing apparel brands at the Agenda, London Edge, Bright and Outdoor Retailer trade shows this year.

“Pockets take center stage with contrasting allover prints,” states the trend forecast and analysis company in its Active Trade Show Wrap: Prints & Graphics S/S 14 report.

Design elements that define this trend include:

  • Varying prints from classic camouflage to tropical patterns
  • Florals, from sweet ditsies to dark, romantic blooms
  • Brightly colored pockets are the focus, replacing conventional T-shirt graphics
