With the house to myself today I have managed to get cracking on my inspirations for this project. Using my own photos and good old Pinterest to find amazing images I have put together a board which will keep me focused while I sketch.
Looking back, past designers come to mind such as William Morris. Always the obvious choice but I prefer the work of architect and designer Owen Jones. The geometery and abstracted designs appeal to me as well as his work inspired by the Spanish Alhambra Palace.
I think his tessellated style will suit this project too. So it is his work I have included on my board along with natural forms and the SS16 colour palette.
Somehow I will also incorporate the paper cutting which I started on Monday. That may be a challenge but isn’t that what makes designing so exciting?
Answers on a postcard please!
