I’m running behind, but I’ve finally managed to get somewhere with week 1 🙂 I’ve attached jpegs with the motifs I’ve created + my moodboard.
Trends and influences:
Jungle Blue + Opulent Safari + Surreal Garden. I was inspired by the colours in the first trend, the animals in the second one, and the surrealism in the third one.
I feel like I’m inspired by so many artists and designers, and so many different styles, but I’ve tried to narrow it down for this assignment:
-Lisa Congdon for her clean and colourful Scandinavian inspired art. I love how her work has an edge and energy to it.
-Lillian Farag for her whimsical, joyful and abstract designs. I love her use of colour, textures and shapes.
-Henri Rosseau for his surrealist, imaginative and dreamlike jungles and landscapes. I love his lush, dense jungles and use of colour.
Other influences are Art Deco and Mid-century design.
I feel like I’m too new to design to have a style yet, but I really enjoy exploring and experimenting to see where it takes me. This has been a great exercise and it’s given me lots to think about!
