Along with color palettes, Pantone also offers additional predictions about design materials and patterns. In this Re-Do it Design blog post, Kimberly Latimer shares Pantone's interior design trends for 2013. Since these can directly apply to designing digital papers and elements, I thought I'd share a few of them with you:
  • Wolves and horses
  • Pop art
  • A sculptural feel, classical shapes and traditional styling
  • Hollywood-inspired design
  • Art Deco
  • Yellow-greens paired with corals, rose, melon, and terracotta
  • Neon effects and colors (carried over from 2012)
  • Colored metallics
  • Accordion pleats and scallops
Check out Kimberly's blog for more articles on Pantone color inspiration and design trends. I highly recommend it for digital designers: Kimberly's images from Pantone's Homes + Interiors webinar provide some good visual inspiration for scrapbooking papers and elements, as do her images that accompany the 2013 Pantone color palettes. If you want to design kits that  fit in with the clothing in your customer's photos, match current and future design trends, and have an up-to-date feel, a little Pantone color makes the grade!    Send article as PDF

    The application also offers some freebies like ID3 tagger and audio
    trimmer. These types can be taken with you on a road trip or in
    your RV, or they can just be easily moved around the house.
    Clearly as the genre of neo soul continues to
    evolve, so will its musical direction into even more creative sub-branches of the same
    tree of soul that funk planted, that jazz watered, and that R&B pruned.
