A while back I shared that I was taking Module 2, Creating Your Professional Identity a pattern design class from the Art and Business of Surface Design with Rachel Taylor and Beth Kempton. This week I’m going to share some of the work that my fellow students are producing.
The first student is Cathy Westrell Nordstrom from Studio Lila Form. She is a surface pattern and graphic designer. She is inspired by nature, abstract shapes and all things flora and fauna. She hand draws her patterns before scanning the drawings and adding color and texture in Illustrator. Her patterns are lovely and her use of color is fantastic. Check out her work on her website.
Kevin Brackley, from Sydney Australia also has some beautiful patterns. Kevin is the most knowledgeable person. During the class he was super helpful in the online community. His patterns are intricate. I Love the use of different sized motifs and his use of color.
Here is a beautiful pattern from the lovely Emma McGowan.
Hope you enjoyed these lovely patterns. Have a great week.
