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, décor, 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.
