Trend Alert: Brush Strokes

There is nothing I love more than a well done, textured design. Texture is the extra element that can turn something from completely flat looking into a beautiful, multi dimensional design.

This year we are seeing a big movement toward the brush stroke texture effect.

Long strokes with a painterly flick at the finish, separated with negative space or short strokes overlapping more short strokes with the same vigor – whichever way the brush stoke is done, it’s all the rage this year.

Team this painterly effect with strong and deep colour tones for a dramatic and modern look.
