These vibrant and gem like designs are couple of surface pattern designs that I created for the Patternmash 'Overview' Design Challenge in August. Patternmash holds monthly design challenges for international textile and surface pattern designers. Every month there is a new on trend challenge with a set brief and colour palette.
I really enjoy taking part and creating surface pattern designs for these monthly challenges as quite often they are totally out of my comfort zone and style. This enables me as a designer really extend myself bot artistically and style wise and at the same time developing a large body of work for my portfolio.
I created a series of designs for the Overview challenge which I have formed into a new collection based on gemstones. Below you can see my 'Amethyst' design and another detailed preview of the 'Mosaic' design. Both these designs have vibrant colour palettes with a wonderful layered technique and they will look totally exquisite printed on silk!
