With experimental digital prints continuing to trend for Spring/Summer 2013, the Patternbank crew spotted these amazing photo collage prints by Brit/Brazilian duo Basso & Brooke. These prints are from their current Spring/Summer 2012 collection but with their creative forward thinking, we are seeing this style of print as a key reference point for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 catwalk shows. Mixing photo floral elements, abstract surreal backdrops and digitally manipulated imagery, Basso & Brooke are definitely the designers to keep an eye on for upcoming digital print trends.

Also check out Basso & Brooke’s massive 31 print sweatshirt collection, which is a real inspirational reference point for any designer.

These amazing portraits are the work of graphic designer and self-taught Finnish photographer Christoffer Relander. The Patternbank team were stunned by his creative experimentation that generate these double and triple exposure images. Heavy contrast adjustment help blend nature and human form in these fascinating photo artworks. Using his trusted Nikon D700 and some skillful work in iLightroom editing suite, Relander creates a series of beautifully captivating statements.

Archan Nairs work is pretty mesmerising, with its vivid techno colours and out of this world imagery. Working from New Delphi, India he creates his work using mixed media and digital art and with a background in fashion we think he has a great eye for colour and pattern making. Archan’s portfolio is pretty extensive too and he has an impressive client list that includes Canon, Nike, Sony, Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair. Check out more of his spectacular art work at archann.net
