• PROCESS of designing fabric patterns

    Designing Patterns That POP

     hand-drawn, modern, timeless style.

    ​Step 1 / The brief

    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.
