Let's me define and understand the expectations of the project. The brief determines the vision and desired outcome.
Step 2 / Mood Board
A picture is worth a thousand words. I use mood boards to create that picture to highlight trends and styles.Putting together inspirational elements to flesh out ideas at the beginning of a project.
Step 3 / Sketches
Sketching ideas helps me explore and explain concepts. To discover the best ideas and solutions to the brief.
Step 4 / Colour Story
My colour story has been chosen for the purpose of creating a strong brand identity.
Step 5/Pattern Creation Formula
Having a formula enables me to come end up with the same result each time a collection is created. The beauty of this is that it simplifies the process. I never have to spend a second wondering what route to take. This is especially important if one is creating a branded look.
Step 6/Collection Complete
Once the collection is complete, it is presented in two ways. On a presentation page and then mocked up onto fabric.
