My surface pattern design has a good grounding in my surroundings, and it’s not all about florals. Inspiration comes from many sources and I enjoy looking out for geometric patterns on my walk. On our daily walk, Patch and I pass lots of gates, walls, road coverings, doorways etc and you can find some really interesting patterns if you take the time to look. Here’s just a few images of objects and structures that we passed by today. I love these colours, so will try and pull out a colour palette on this one too. Even though these objects are made of steel and concrete which (in January) in very cold, the colours look surprisingly warm.
What do you walk past every day that could be a source of inspiration for a design for you?
