BA Surface Pattern Design

The inspiration for my final major project is from the designer shops I visited in Milan, as well as the work of illustrative designer Ana Hard. I was particularly drawn to her use of feminine bold colours, attention to detail, and I like how she focuses mainly on objects related to women. The way she gathers objects together gave me the idea of creating modern and girly still life patterns using imagery from designer shops and quirky cafes in Milan. I visualise these designs in a stationery and lifestyle context as this is what I would like to design in the future. My aim is to become a successful illustrative stationery and lifestyle designer which eventually results in running my own successful business. To reach this goal my plan after graduating is apply for jobs in stationery or illustrative design, and create more things to sell on my etsy website.
