#16 | solid color


One of my biggest pattern design idols definitely is Marimekko, including every designer ever working for them. So you will find a lot of Marimekko on my inspirational pattern pinboard.


When I started on the circle repeat I actually was still very much with Lisa Congdon’s line circles, after filling my first page, it just felt like it wanted some black and some Marimekko vibes.


I’m realizing that I generally like working with the negative space, or rather with eliminating as much negative space as possible, so that a white piece of fabric can be transformed into something colorful.
