These are a few fabric I’ve design and are available to view in my Design Library on Spoonflower.com. If you’re interested in purchasing, let me know. I still need to get verified before I can sell on their site. I’m not sure if I want to have customers order through me or have Spoonflower take care of everything.
Not sure in anyone will notice, but the image in my WordPress header is a partial of the Watercolor Lattice pattern (on the bottom left in the above image). The pattern looks very different when paired with a colored background.
You can find out more details about each pattern by visiting my Spoonflower Design Library linked above.
I entered a contest to design a logo for a community-based organization called The Factory. The organization makes clothes from donated and remnant fabrics (See event). I wanted something that was clean and simple, but well thought out and designed. My idea behind my design was to show lines or “threads” as the weaving and unweaving (or sewing together) of fabrics that are later being cut and remade into something else. It also helps to illustrate the sense of community and togetherness. The handmade type represents the organization’s connection with community and independent designers. I was inspired by this statement:
The factory is a community-based organization
created to complement the efforts of The Evans Group.
We are a launching pad for independent designers that
builds community through social awareness in fashion
and highlights the hands that touch our garments.
The colors I chose to use are meant to show the collecting of old and new…the use of something that was into something new and different. I also see the color as very symbolic California. I hope my design is chosen!
This is a series of posters I did this past semester about farmers’ market. My emphasis was on the referencing the farmers’ market that is set in a rural area. I wanted to draw attention to iconography of the idyllic farm that has ties to days gone by, i.e. not completely modern and with a hint of the past.
While brainstorming I found areas of interest and importance.
old-fashioned, worn, rustic, hand-made
small, gathering, supportive, homey
In the area of color, I wanted to mostly stick with primary colors, then mix and vary the tone and intensity. Red was an important color as it symbolizes the traditional barn and the texture had to be spot on in order to get the old, faded, barn feeling.
I chose four objects to stylize that would connect the viewer to the type of setting I had in mind. The four object were: a farm truck from the 1930s, a hand written sign, a scale, and a barn.
