Pattern Portfolio

A small sample of my surface pattern designs developed both in response to real briefs and trend stories, as well as through self-initiated design exploration.

‘Fierce Leopard’, designed in response to the theme ‘At The Zoo’. Also available in monochrome.

A focus on the structure of leaves and natural elements through hand-drawn and photographic motifs.
