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!
Sad to say that this was the last week of Folio Focus. For Week 10 Christmas Week, I designed this collection of festive patterns for my Christmas Bouquet Collection. I'll be back for the next Folio Focus!
Already into Week 9 of Folio Focus! This week's brief was People, and although the brief was for a self-portrait, somehow these people morphed into Valentine's day patterns! Let me know what you think as this is still a WIP! I guess it could be me, since I have glasses exactly like hers!
This week's brief was to design packaging for a soap collection featuring abstract patterns! Here are my four "Fun Flavours" designs!
I am taking Pattern Observer's Photoshop for Designers 1 course right now, just to continue learning more skills! Here is a repeat I just did...loving this course! So much to learn, so little time!
Week 3 of my Folio Focus course was all about geometric and striped designs. Here are the patterns I designed, 2 main patterns and coordinates and below, on bolt fabric!
This week we were tasked with coming up with a positive message for girl's apparel. Here is my "Make A Difference" design on apparel! Hope you like it!
Just finished Week 1 of the FolioFocus course given by Rise Design and Shine! This week the brief was "Botanicals", so I designed these 2 floral patterns as part of a collection that includes this geometric I designed earlier (bottom left). Hope you like them! And I put the pattern on a notebook below!
This week we explored mark-making and textures for MATS Creating Collections for Home Decor. So I decided to create a collection for wood featuring some of the doodles I did! This was the final week of this course and just might have to take it again in the future!
Although this week was all about lettering, I really had fun designing patterns for my ceramics collection! Onwards next week for designing for wood products!
