Summer Inspired Pattern
In 2017 I participated in ‘Make It In Design’ Summer School. In the run up to it they held a competition, which brief’s was to create a pattern inspired by theme of Summer. I was inspired by the ever-present lifestyle flat-lays, which social media is full of these days. I chose items associated to summer and holiday across clothing, decor, flowers, food and drink. My aim was to incorporate pencil drawing into it and maintain the hand drawn feel to the elements. I also added objects like paints, ink and a sketchbook to reflect that. Later I’ve scanned in and rendered the pattern digitally. Regarding colour palette I initially revolved around pastels but eventually opted for selections of sky blues and corals. I’ve attached a brief case study showcasing stages from the scan of the drawings, through to alternative colour options.
