trendI first posted on this subject back in February but I’m continuing to see some really great designs based on traditionally British icons so I thought I’d do an update. I love the crown hook and postage stamp mirror and Twisted Twee’s father and son T-shirt set based on the pint symbol is brilliant. The popularity of the Union Jack as a design doesn’t seem to be abating and after the success of the British war poster ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ it seems this trend is going from strength to strength.

trend1The Union Jack is having a bit of a revival at the moment with it being used on all manner of products. The great thing about the trend this time around, however is the number of different colours being used to illustrate it, subverting the way it is usually seen. Many are giving it a very soft, country feel and therefore completely subverting it from the angry symbol used by punks:
