Day 27 / 365 Days of Designs

I’m back to doing patterns. I haven’t landed on what I want my next Theme Sprint to be. Kids patterns, hand drawn patterns, minimalist patterns, botanical, stencil style, interlocking elements (this idea intrigues me), watercolor style, patterns with animals.

Today’s is a placeholder, but I do love it it’s simplicity and bold color story. Redbubble time. Until tomorrow!

Day 20 of 365 Days of Design

Today is the last day of my Geometric design sprint. Today I wanted to do a herringbone or chevron pattern. Next I think I may do designs for kid’s patterns. We’ll see! Who knows what I’ll set out to do and what will come out the other end – it surprises me nearly every day. Here’s the Redbubble link.

 

Until tomorrow!

Day 18 of 365 Days of Design

This one was my husband’s idea. He said “You should do stripes that go from fat to thin one way, and then fat to thin the other way, and they should be gradients each way.”

So I gave that a go! The first design was straight stripes, but I just can’t. So I did some duplicating and off-setting, and played with the layer blending modes until I liked it.

It’s bright and rainbowy and feels very cheerful. Plus stripes are the easiest things in the world next to polka dots to make into a repeat pattern.

Here is is on Redbubble!

Until tomorrow!

Day 16 of 365 Days of Design

Today was all about color.  I ran into this three color palette a while back and was struck at how unusual it was, and how the mustard made the light minty green pop.

I worked at a more organic geometric design like yesterday’s, but landed on this much more structured design, a style I tend to shy away from but it works here, especially since the color palette is the real focus of the piece. I did play extensively with some organic forms but ultimately they just didn’t work out.

Redbubble things here! That’s it for me today. See ya tomorrow!

 

Day 13 of 365 Days of Design

When I woke up this morning, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

The result is not exactly what I had in my head, but it does have the element of graduated circles. I like the way it creates a light and shadow effect. Available on over 53 products on Redbubble!

I know what I want to do next for a theme sprint, but I’m going to stick with Geometric for a while longer. There’s an entire world of design to be explored there.

That’s all for me today. Until tomorrow!

Day 2 of 365 days of print and pattern

Today I know I wanted to do something extremely minimalist and in black and white. I started with a line, some circles, and realized it looked like a geometric plant. I ran with that thought and created this geometric garden that reminds me a bit of a circuit board. Circuit board garden?

Anyway, I do love me a geometric minimalist pattern. I have 365 days to explore this side of me!

Here’s the pattern I created and how it looks on a shirt. I’d absolutely wear that shirt.

 

See it on my Redbubble site and see ya tomorrow!
