This week's brief for FolioFocus 2018 was "AstroSynergy"! So I decided to design some Signs of the Zodiac, starting with "Taurus". Here is a collection with a placement print and several repeat designs. I might try and do "Aries" next...Are you a Taurus?! This collection would be wonderful on bedding, as shown!
As part of preparing for Surtex (May 20-22, Booth 2524) and Blueprint Show 1 (May 17-19) in NYC, I've been revising and recolouring some of my pattern design collections, such as this "Al Fresco" Collection here, available to license! You can see the full collection in my new LOOKBOOK which will soon be available to view at Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles where you will be able to request access to view!
I love how new colours change the feel of a surface pattern design collection! Here is my "How Does Your Garden Grow?" Collection in Dusky Pink and the original Fresh Green colour palettes. Take your pick! Which do you like best? Both colour ways will be available at Surtex and Blueprint Show 1 this May in NYC with Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles!
Wow! It's April already! I've been laying out my 32-page LOOKBOOK full of my surface pattern designs (over 100!), which will be available to view at both Surtex (May 20-22, Booth 2524) and Blueprint Show 1 (May 17-19) where I'll be represented by Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles. Here is a sneak peek of the cover, and my revised logo. Would this tempt you to open up the book and have a look?!
I love birds with BIG FEET! So I've been working on my pattern designs featuring water birds...herons, oystercatchers and scarlet ibis! This collection will be available at both Surtex and Blueprint Show 1 this May in NYC where I will be showing with Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles! If you want to see some of the coordinates in this collection, check out my Fauna page in my Portfolio! Happy Weekend everyone!
Just thought I would mockup some of my new pattern collections on the wonderful mockups from Nerida Hansen! On the left, my "How Does Your Garden Grow?" Collection and on the right, my "Sunny Climes" Collection. I can feel the warm breezes already...
Now that Folio Focus is over for now, I have been really enjoying designing new pattern collections! Here is my new "Folk Garden" Collection which features folk-inspired flowers with an organic mix of botanical and floral motifs! Enjoy!
Just thought I would post this round-up of some of the new patterns and placement prints that I designed during the super fun 10-week Folio Focus course! Can't wait to do the course again in 2018!
Had a lot of fun with this one! Decided to keep it very graphic and geometric for a fun cityscape placement print and some co-ordinating repeat patterns! Can't wait to see what's in store for Week 7!
