Patterns: Swatch Book/Applications

For my swatch book I wanted it to be a swatch kit where people can browse through my swatches and hold them up individually to surfaces to see if they would look good. Hence, I decided to so swatch cards and package them. I started by creating more swatches and then printing them and cutting them out individually.    … Read more →

It was more experimental and consisted of a lot of repeating. Here are some… Read more →

After posting the initial exploration process on OSS, I received feedback from Ina to explore two directions:… Read more →

Patterns: Researching and Moodboarding draft

The theme given to us was “Supernatural”, specifically with regard to 7th Month, although we were given the option to explore other areas in the theme as well.   I started off by mindmapping to explore what Supernatural could mean: After that I decided to look in to a more direct representation of the supernatural by doing some quick sketches… Read more →
