So what's it all about? 50+ surface pattern designers worldwide are taking part in this bloghop celebrating Pantone's colour of the year for 2013 - Emerald Green, with the theme 'Flying.' Each of us have designed a small collection based on this.
If this is your first visit to my blog, hello my name is Faye Brown! I'm a designer and animator based in the UK. I love all things design - typography, colour and photography. If you'd like to see anymore of my work pop over to my website Faye Brown Designs but make sure you finish the bloghop first!
My collection, Spaceboy, is taking you out of this world into the unknown. Inspired everyday by my little boy, I've designed a collection aimed at the children's market for use on pyjamas, bedlinen or wallpaper. Using hand drawn illustrations, the main image is a pattern repeat with drawings of flying astronauts, rockets and UFO's around moons, planets and stars. With placement prints using the rocket and astronaut. I like the vintage feel of the design yet using the on trend emerald green brings it up to date. I'd love to see my son wearing pyjamas like these and dreaming of being a space boy!
Initial sketches for the pattern. I decided against using the hand drawn type.
Spaceboy repeat pattern
Rocket placement print - could work well on pillows
Design shown on pyjamas using simple stars and stripes on the PJ bottoms. Along with the repeat pattern, a second placement print with the astronaut is used for the other top.
Your visit to space is nearly over and now it's time to fly over to Toronto to visit the talented designer Natalie Alexander.
I'd like to thank you for stopping by and massive thanks to Rosie at Believe Creative Studio for curating this bloghop.
