Don't miss the exciting 30th issue of MPDInsight  as our in-house editorial team reveal key drivers for our Spring/summer 13 trends.

We explore the ideas around renaissance, referencing the trend for classicism within both art and culture.  Creative thinking is further defined by the rise of the modern polymath while the avant-garde ideas of the academic revolutionaries storm back into relevance.

Elsewhere, the modern artisan heralds a return to craft where the techno atelier practices the art of bespoke and digital innovation is ‘handmade by machine'. boyd
