By August 22, 2014contest, new pattern

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.
