What’s the Deal with Digital?

Over the weekend, Strike Hold! published a great article (Making Sense of Digital Camo) discussing the “digital phenomenon” sweeping the camo world. What’s it all mean? Many have been using the term digital interchangeably with pixelated and nothing could be further from the truth. After all, the pixel designs are just a means to make the pattern easier to deal with during the design and printing phases. Squares are much easier to register than irregular shapes. On the other extreme is MultiCam which looks to be an old school analog pattern but was developed with computer aid design software and a lot of hard work.

Here’s a tip, watch for fractal camo to be the next big thing, taking over from the pixelated patterns that have dominated as of late. Still developed with the aid of computers, fractal patterns more closely mimic nature.
