Surface Pattern Design Summer School: Part 2
I’ve been taking a summer surface design course sponsored by Make It In Design. Every two weeks participants are given a brief that outlines the theme and provides some inspiration and examples of uses for the surface designs.
Surface Design No. 1: Tribal Shapes using an earth tone palette in 2 colorways
Surface Design No. 2: Animal Prints using that same earth tone palette, which I really love. I reworked a set of animal prints I designed in the past, fixed the seamless repeat, and I’m so much happier with them now.
Surface Design No. 3: Tribal Collage using that same earth tone palette
And a couple quickie tote bags too.
So far this course has been great practice in coming up with ideas based on a theme and following a design brief as well as designing surface patterns. There’s one more session left in this summer school course, which will be distributed next week.
