Graphic Design Trends 2014: Paisley Pop Prints Spotted by Stylesight at Indigo

Leading trend forecast company, Stylesight (which recently merged with former rival WGSN into a mega international trend-forecasting conglomerate) reported trends from leading textile and surface design show, Indigo, including one dubbed “Paisley Pop” seen below.

Often graphic designers find inspiration in related fields, from art and design, to fashion and architecture. You can see how the vibrant paisley patterns spotted in the textiles at Indigo translate across various design mediums from poster prints, to fashion to interiors in the image below.

“Studios at Indigo revolutionized the paisley print for F/W 15 with bright pops, bold key lines and oversized scales,” states Stylesight/WGSN in its Marketing Reporting/Trade Shows/Indigo F/W report.

Design elements that define this trend include:

  • Zany colorways and thick, black key lines provided a retro feel for fall
  • The paisley motif was obscured into new shapes
  • Classic detailing overhauled other motifs including flowers and foliage
