Today, I thought I would share the process I went through to design my 2016 original textile collection called "Mountain Meadow". Since there are usually many ways to accomplish the same goal, I thought it might be informative, and perhaps, helpful to show my approach.
This is the final collection called " Mountain Meadow", including before and after pillow mock ups.
I started by creating a Pinterest board with natural elements that I found inspiring.
Next, I found some rooms/environments that set the mood for the collection.
I collected some drawings from my sketch books and designed a color palette.
After drafting a bunch of ideas, I picked the best ones for the final collection.
After selecting the final designs, I crafted them into repeating patterns.
Lastly, I made pillow and wallpaper mock-ups to illustrate how the patterns would look on products.
