Much love, Michelle
Mark your calendars! The Surface Pattern Design Mastery Group-Study starts on October 23, 2017.
In this 6-week course you will discover how to turn your sketches, paintings, and illustrations into eye-catching surface pattern design layouts in less time.
You’ll also have free access to WGSN, the industry’s leading resource for trends and design direction.
This month’s theme is back to school for the Fall 2019 season (however you can also apply this trend to Spring 2019 if you have not yet moved on to designing for fall–we all move at our own pace through the seasons!)
The overarching idea for this month’s trend is a super bold, almost punk take on classic back to school/fall patterns, and creating contrast within your design. Think super sweet florals paired with a bold stripe, or the flowers made bold through color or scale. Classic plaids or stripes can be enlivened and made modern through a palette of punchy primaries, or by adding distressed textures.
