Print & Pattern making


I’ve been having over fun over Christmas sketching ideas for prints and patterns inspired somewhat by the work of Finnish Design Company, Marimekko. I’m not sure why but I seem drawn to this type of imagery at the moment; collage, cutouts, caricatures and simple, colourful patterns, clean & rationalized. I think it follows a general trend in life, design and illustration towards simplification. People don’t have the time or patience to spend time trying to understand things anymore. The quicker something is to grasp the more attention and impact it seems to have?
