Advocate Art

Advocate is always on the hunt for new trends and regularly turns predictions into mood boards to share with artists and clients.

Past Meets Present

“Two themes crop up here: a combination of traditional crafting techniques (appliqu√©, cross-stitch, knitting etc.) are given a modern digital look with a 1950s’ colour palette; and an Edwardian take which combines traditional botanical etchings with a modern colour palette of teal, muted mauve and lemon yellow.”

Design Classics

“Taking inspirations from mid-20th century design icons such as typewriters, telephones and classic movie posters, this colour palette is bold and masculine”

Holiday Time

‘The final trend we’re expecting to see a lot of in the coming months, this combines bright, bold prints with tropical icons such as parrots, palm trees and pineapples. We are also seeing a resurgence of nautical-themed icons such as anchors and retro sailor tattoos, tying in nicely with British seaside nostalgia. “
