Curves Pattern Design

Design Inspiration for Curves

The building blocks of the curves design are simple quarter circles. Inspired by patterned tiles from the 60s and 70s.

Manipulating and Overlaying Designs

The basic design shows (1) the origin of the standard shaped arcs, by duplicating this and condensing it to half the width created a more interesting series of elipse shapes (2). The real breakthrough came from overlaying the two designs over each other (3). There must be thousands of combinations that can be created by making only one or two changes.

Colour Variations

For my pattern designs I use a catalogue of colours each of which has its own number. There are currently 31x colours I have chosen these Curves designs from. Whenever I find a new colour I add this to all my designs to explore if the new colour way would work with the pattern. Here I have shown Curves in 12 variations – smaller screen sizes display less examples. Rolling your mouse over an image will display its code.
