I've been slowly but surely working on a series of folk-inspired greeting card layouts the last few days, in response to a creative brief from the Make It In Design Live Hub community that I belong to! Here are the first 2 designs (of, hopefully, 4) in the series. I am curious...which one do you like better and why? Colours? Layouts? I'm going to get started on #3 ASAP!
For the month of July, Slowdown Studio had a Blanket Design Competition with 12 winning artists having their designs featured in their 2020 Collection. But before you get tooooo excited, I didn't win (there were almost 10000, yes TEN THOUSAND, entries!), but it did spark some brand new work for me: Abstract Designs! I really enjoyed working just with shape, form and colour, and plan to (1) do many more for home decor and art prints, and (2) turn some of these abstract print designs into super funky, cool repeat patterns! I was so inspired, that I made a separate ABSTRACTS page in my online Portfolio (have a look!). More abstract pattern designs to come! Here are the 4 abstract-themed designs I submitted! Oh, and if you want to see some of the "process" videos for these, check out my Instagram feed! Hint: I plan to add these to my Society 6 Shop in the next few weeks as Art Prints!
