This pattern was submitted as an assignment for the Skillshare course "Intro to Surface Pattern Design" by Bonnie Christine (which I highly recommend, by the way!).
My original inspiration was the theme "Meadow". However, the more I looked at reference photos, the more I found myself gravitating towards the night/dusk color story, as opposed to the usual day time tones. It just seemed more refreshing to me.
Below you'll also find a color variation for this pattern and an example of application on actual notebooks.
This pattern was created as an assignment for the Summer Design School by MIID (Make it in Design). After we were given a nautical theme, I knew my take on it had to be something really stylized. This is the result!
Below you'll also find a color variation and a dress mockup as an example of application.
This pattern was inspired by my son Erik, who was named after the viking "Erik, the Red". I wanted to have something in his room to reflect that theme while being light, playful and most importantly: made by me.
Below you'll find 2 ideas for coordinating patterns and a mockup for baby clothes.
This pattern was created as an entry in the Spoonflower.com challenge "Geodesic".
If you don't know what it means, don't worry! I didn't either! Essentially, a geodesic is the notion of a curved shaped made up by straightlines. What I tried to do was create a fluid and wavy composition using only triangles - there are no curves here.
Below you can check color variations and a mockup.
Talk about a leap outside my comfort zone! This pattern was created in response to the Summer Design School creative brief "Pure Zen", which kinda goes agains my usual use of bright colors.
A flying crane, a bed of flowers and the color blue where 3 things I thought to myself are zen and relaxing to me. The combination of those resulted in this pattern.
