Trends to Watch in 2013: Gentleman's Design

The influence of "Gentleman's Design" has experienced a surge in popularity in 2012 (think hipster mustaches and funky flasks) and we expect to see this trend continue in 2013 by evolving gracefully into a more refined and elegant look.  

For the new year you can expect rich, indulgent colors along with aged and embossed design details, often in metallic effects.  Motifs include gentleman's accessories "icons" such as top hats, bow ties, and canes that will join the ranks of the humble mustache.  And, for packaging design, look for neatly scripted fonts and serifs with light hearted, polite, and humorous wordplay - all traits of a true gentleman.

In our first design post in our Trends to Watch in 2013 series, we've compiled a collection of looks perfect for inspiring the design for a gentleman!
