Pattern is everywhere at the moment and it’s a time where many emerging brands are freshening up new collections with an abundance of found archive prints. The Patternbank team saw these fun, retro inspired shirt prints from Cuckoos Nest, a UK street wear brand that’s turning heads at the moment. We’re loving the mix of edgy street wear and the idyllic outdoors. Engineered Hawaiian style, cute animal character scenes, bear repeats and duck conversation prints give a real earthy twist to their new SS13 Summer collection.

Long ago when mobile phones were the size of houses and the closest thing to the internet was the loading screens on a zx spectrum. There was a kid who could almost always be found scribbling away. Conjuring up imagery of anything and everything from hyper advanced cars to magnificent beasts. That kid was Scott Balmer. After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone college of Art & Design in Scotland, Balmer started life as a freelance illustrator and has never looked back since. Patternbank is digging Scott’s trippy graphic explorations in colour and pattern. With clients like Umbro, The Guardian, Howies and The New York Times magazine already tapping into his creative mindset, he’s definitely one to watch. See more of his illustration portfolio here.

After visiting the recent Bread & Butter show in Berlin, the Patternbank team saw that photographic prints are still featuring strong for Spring/Summer 2013 graphics. Colourful, surreal prints are still a main focus for many brands for next summer. With this in mind we thought we’d share these imaginary photo collage prints from Beth Hoeckel. Mixing realist and surrealist Hoeckel’s work plays with the juxtaposition between foreground and background objects. Baltimore based Hoeckel is a collage artist and photographer who loves the control of real paper, ink and adhesive.

Experimenting with new techniques can be a key part of elevating artworks. Patternbank recently stumbled across Kris Trappeniers a Belgium – based artist. Describing himself as a “paper sculptor” we were in awe at his incredibly delicate portraits.  Using just a ballpoint pen and a sharp scalpel Trappeniers painstakingly cuts out his artworks to create these linear halftone effects – simply stunning stuff.

Caleb’s authentic looking layouts and hand crafted font work that give these branded graphics such strong visual impact.
