Blues, pinks, yellows and the details in black, appear in all of the four designs, all inspired by Atelier Bingo.

Body part illustrated prints is a trending pattern that is being used on clothes, accessories and even home decorations. It’s a hot trend that people are going crazy about. From eyes to hands and boobs, this is a symbol of feminism for the most.
Lazy Oaf and Urban Outfitters are good examples of brands that made these kind of prints very popular.
The most common colours on this collection are pastel colours like pink, peach and mint. However, if you’re not into any of these colours, we have them in more colours such as the boob print case in yellow and black.
The African wild dog, also known as painted wolf is a canid that inspired us, with their beautiful painted fur, to create two new prints for our tech cases.
After some research and talk about what animal print we should do next to make it pop-up from the very well known leopard and snake ones (huge trends at the moment) we came up the idea of this creature and after looking at some photos and paintings, the creations was made.
Usingwatercolour and ecoline (based water paint) the shapes of the animal were painted to transmit the amazing pattern of this animal in the most authentic and unique way. Not only the hand painting was very important for this print but the digital work as well. The images were cleaned in Adobe Photoshop and painted all over to imitate the fur texture.
It is a trend and it will always be, tropical theme prints can be versatile with various elements. From the vivid leaves and monstera leaves to the wild birdlife, that was the main inspirations for the creation of this phone case unique print.
We selected three elements: monstera leaf, lily buds and leaves. To add detail to the print, we added some painted dots.
For the colours we selected a pallet of summery colours: pinks, yellows, greens and blues.
Tropical prints have become very famous and some of the high street fashion brands are using it for their pieces of clothing and accessories such as Dolce & Gabbana and even Gucci. This print design trend has also grown in notoriety across interiors, prints, home decor and art.
We can find these prints and collections on Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration. As we may know these prints are here to stay.
