AVENS and HOGWEED

By | new patterns

New patterns in the catalogue!
A few months ago I went to the second hand bookstore to buy a random book for inspiration. I chose a book called ‘Wild Flowers’ with over a thousand species by photographic identification, published in 1978. AVENS #1, AVENS #2, AVENS LEAF and HOGWEED are the first patttern designs inspired by the wild flower photographs, more to come!

Commissioned designs for HEMA, with stores in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France and Germany.
The custom-made patterns FEATHER and TULIP are part of the new HEMA concept ‘Blijmakers’ and have been applied to bags, umbrellas, napkins, gift bags and more.

Textielmuseum

By | contest, new patterns

This is the design I submitted for the Textielmuseum I-CONTEST. The task was to design a pattern inspired by printing techniques. I started out with 7x7cm foam squares, I then cut shapes out of the squares to stamp with, the residual shapes (negative shapes) turned out to be just as interesting as the ‘positive’ shapes so I ended up making a stamped pattern combining the two. After that I translated it into a digital surface pattern which you see here.
