I created my Tropical Birds pattern for Make it in Design’s Winter School 2021 Exotic Canopy brief. The brief asked for a moody, warm, and elegant design inspired by the tropics.
I decided to use tropical birds and ferns in my design and created this mood board.
I created the color palette from my mood board photos and drew the bird, fern, and leaf motifs by hand. I then scanned them into Adobe Illustrator and traced them to create vector shapes.
I created this final pattern for Winter School 2021, but decided I did not like the color palette.
I tweaked the color palette and think that this version is more “me”.
I added the revised pattern to my Redbubble shop and added it to all sorts of products.
