Mushroom Hunt

The Funghi Hunt Wel­come to a sur­face pat­tern design series inspired by a wild mush­room hunt in a dew cov­ered for­est dur­ing late sum­mer. It aims to evoke the spir­it of this most absorb­ing quest of spot­ting their hid­ing places amongst the grass and moss.  After­wards, as the sun is set­ting low, equipped with a filled wick­er bas­ket, the hunters head back… Read More

Magnolia Tree

Mag­no­lia Blooms Inspi­ra­tion for this sur­face pat­tern series comes from the mag­nif­i­cent, flow­er­ing branch­es of the Mag­no­lia tree. It is regard­ed as the old­est flow­er­ing plant, with fos­sils dat­ing back 100 mil­lion years! With strong sym­bol­ism across dif­fer­ent cul­tures, Mag­no­lia is wide­ly admired for its spec­tac­u­lar and fla­grant blooms.  This sur­face pat­tern design project was… Read More

Graphic Botanicals

Graph­ic Botan­i­cals The inspi­ra­tion for this sur­face pat­tern series was derived from the dia­logue between geo­met­ric and organ­ic ele­ments. This is reflect­ed in the inter­con­nec­tion of dig­i­tal flat shapes with the hand drawn free-flow­ing line draw­ings. By jux­ta­pos­ing organ­ised geo­met­ri­cal order, with nature’s ele­gant shapes, this design con­tributes to the ongo­ing rela­tion­ship between the two. This… Read More

Leaf Veins

Leaf Vena­tion Wel­come to a sur­face pat­tern design case study called “Leaf Vena­tion”. It was inspired by the fine design the small­est of nature’s cre­ations. Through mag­ni­fy­ing leaves, the translu­cent struc­ture offers an oppor­tu­ni­ty to mar­vel at its intri­ca­cies.  The high­light­ed vena­tion sys­tem reminds us of the life pul­sat­ing in their veins, as well as… Read More

Butterfly Wings

Kalei­do­scope The charm­ing but­ter­fly is indica­tive of the arrival of the spring sun, and hence around the world, it is viewed as rep­re­sent­ing change, hope, and life. More­over, because of their fas­ci­nat­ing life cycle, they’re sym­bol­ic of meta­mor­pho­sis, renew­al, and the tran­si­to­ry, frag­ile nature of beau­ty itself. Among var­i­ous super­sti­tions around but­ter­flies, the most com­mon one… Read More


Noc­tur­nal Dwellers An ongo­ing fas­ci­na­tion with the motif of moths may have its root in their deep, sym­bol­ic mean­ing, which gen­er­al­ly seems to be two-fold. On one hand, these curi­ous look­ing crea­tures are admired for their deter­mi­na­tion; even when their efforts prove dan­ger­ous and futile, they are still mad­ly dri­ven toward light. For the same… Read More

She Sells Seashells

By the Seashore Seashells are con­sid­ered fas­ci­nat­ing due to their ori­gins in the depths of the bound­less waters and hav­ing once homed curi­ous sea crea­tures. We val­ue them for their dura­bil­i­ty as well as their beau­ty. So much so that we use them to dec­o­rate not only our sur­round­ings, but also our­selves wear­ing them as… Read More

Living Coral

Liv­ing Coral Pat­tern As a response to the preva­lent “Liv­ing Coral” trend, this pat­tern series explores not only the ‘Pan­tone of 2019’ colour palette, but also the theme behind its name. Draw­ing inspi­ra­tion from marine ele­ments revolv­ing around a vari­ety of corals, kelp and algae, it aims to depict an under­wa­ter scene full of allur­ing sea­weed swaying… Read More

Pegasus of the Forest

Pega­sus of the For­est Deep in the for­est, myth­i­cal crea­tures make their home in the realm inhab­it­ed by oth­er beings that shy away from the human gaze and pre­fer to remain undis­cov­ered. Take a walk through a late autumn, moody wood­land with majes­tic trees so tall that the sun­light fails to reach through to the ground level,… Read More

Rabbit’s Hideout

Rab­bit’s Hide­out A watch­ful rab­bit finds shel­ter in a thick­et of a berried shrub. It has made its bur­row in a pock­et of still­ness amongst the teem­ing wood­land. Motion­less, it delights in an unruf­fled respite from the out­side hus­tle and bus­tle. Yet, it con­tin­ues to lis­ten in to any sus­pi­cious sound­ing nois­es, since the dusk is draw­ing in.… Read More
