Winter School Part 3 - Advanced Track

Posted on


Here is the final group of surface patterns I created during Make it in Design Winter School 2018, from the Advanced Track creative briefs.

This was definitely my favourite track out of all 3, I loved the first creative brief so much that I'm creating a whole collection from it and I got totally carried away with the second brief and different colourways, I have plans for those designs too.

The first creative brief was titled American Prarie, which, after reading the brief I thought I might struggle with this one but once I got going with it everything just fell into place.

I think I may make a pinafore dress out of this Dusty Floral fabric.

The second brief was called Fauna Cyanotype and was based on the Cyanotype process. I experimented with a few floral motifs but in the end I settled on using the one simple leaf motif layered in various colours.

But then I started tweaking colours, I tried using grey for one of the leaves instead of black,

Then I went off on a dusky pink tangent, I really like how this turned out.

I then switched in a dark charcoal background, I do love dark backgrounds,

I could only submit one of these designs to the Winter School Gallery so in the end I chose this one...

One of the things I love most though is receiving a parcel containing fabric samples of my latest designs!
