There are photos below of several baby steps in a the design process.
Here are the parameters I am working with:
- Three color print fabrics (Different values)
- Two neutrals, a gray with white dots and a white with gray stitches. I am also willing to use a solid white. (Three values)
- limited quantities of these fabrics, and some are already cut so not as much design flexibility as usual
- half square triangles
|Dark column next to medium column. Hmm.|
|Same arrows with prints placed randomly|
|Using the 'arrows' to create a box, with interior and exterior spaces|
|Prints and neutrals making flying geese|
|Arrows to the left|
|to the right|
Every step points in a new direction (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) and the process goes on and on.
It is time to step back, and ask how to make it fresh and/or unexpected? How should I use the tools of color and value and scale to help the design? I think I am getting closer...progress ahead.
