I designed this collection in response to a brief to use only geometric shapes, and only design on the computer with no hand-drawn lines at all. It was a really interesting exercise – I immediately wanted to draw all the shapes by hand! Whilst I like the concepts and shapes in this collection, and the colour palette in particular, I think it loses energy and personality without the hand-drawn lines.
So I decided to see what would happen when I re-made some of the patterns by hand. Some of them worked much better, and interestingly some of them didn’t – straight lines are the answer sometimes it seems!
