Surface Pattern Design - Wattle Bag

What is Surface Pattern Design?

Many of the things we love to wear or use has a pattern or artwork on it... perhaps your favourite skirt, gorgeous couch cushions, the colourful bag you've dragged to every continent and even the matching beach chairs you bought for lazy summer days last Christmas...

If you're anything like me, you'll always choose the chocolate or cosmetics with the artful design and pretty packaging!  

 

This is the magic of surface design. 

 

Surface design is the process of creating artworks for any surface, where materials can vary from paper to textiles and even metal. 

 

There are two options with surface design - patterns or placement artworks. Surface pattern design is a term we use specifically about patterns (wallpaper for example). Placement artworks are standalone artworks where a repeating pattern is not required (say, a pillow). 

 

Artworks can be printed on a HUGE range of things - from stationery and wrapping paper, to pillow cases and quilt covers, to swimwear and bags, even architectural products like metal screens and my very favourite - wallpaper.

If you can imagine it (and even if you can't!) I can create it for you.

My Pattern Design Process

Tiny Giraffe celebrates the spirit of travel and the places we leave our hearts.

Destinations, maps, buildings, bridges, flowers and hand lettering features heavily in my work.

When I create a pattern, I take my inspiration from my travels (both near and far), even my own backyard. It could be a windswept day at the beach, or my dreamy holiday in Bali circa 2017.

 

These are the places I left my heart and my dreams for the future.

When I create custom patterns (commissioned by you!) I love to learn about you in our initial briefing meeting. I can't wait to tell your story, so that your artwork is unique to you. You might like to adopt Tiny Giraffe's theme 'the spirit of travel' or something specific and meaningful to your brand and the type of product.

I typically create a moodboard, plus 1-2 concept sketches first, to make sure we're on the same page in terms of colours, objects, scale and theme. 

You choose your favourite concept (or perhaps it's two merged together) and provide any feedback. From there, I'll create the pattern!

You have another opportunity to review the artwork and I refine it so it's perfect for you.
