Do you feel sometimes like wearing a pair of shoes with a bit more colour, a bit more pattern, a bit more pizzazz?!? I know I do… So let me show you some cool colourful patterned trainers available from the big brands at the moment.
First of all happy 2016 to you all! I had to be away from the blog for a few weeks due to a very painful shoulder so I apologise to all my readers…
I would like to open the new year with some exciting news. One of my shower curtains from the ‘Vegetable Medley’ collection got featured in fabulous design magazine ICON.
Christmas is almost here and I just wanted to wish you all a very jolly festive season!
Hopefully you will be able to spend this lovely time surrounded by the people you love, eating lots of delicious food and dancing your legs off (if you’re anything like me!)
I’ll be missing my Colombian family (pictured above) and all their gatherings and celebrations, but I’ll be a busy bee hosting Christmas dinner for 14 members of the British side of the family. Maybe one day, not too far in the future, we’ll be able to have a tropical Christmas.
Oh, and also remember to do something nice for somebody that needs it… It is after all a time of giving.
Today I have for you a pattern workshop run by designer and artist Jessica Swift. So, if you’ve been wanting to dip your toes in the wonderful world of surface pattern design, this is your chance.
Pattern Camp is a virtual, online 2-day, weekend-long pattern design workshop taught by full-time artist and surface pattern designer, Jessica Swift. Participants will leave the workshop with the confidence and skills to create their own beautiful repeat patterns using both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
I believe that one of the most important things as a designer is to keep honing your skills for as long as you’re at it. No way around it. If you want to stay in the race and have a chance against competitors you have to constantly get better at what you do, otherwise you’re going to be left behind, and that’s not where we want to be, is it?
