Discus Surface Pattern Design

Circus To Discus Pattern Design
Discus is a progression from my Circus Pattern design. With Discus I have doubled the number of circles and added horizontal stripes as well as the original vertical ones.
Keeping each of the elements on separate layers it was possible to colour each of them differently. Some of the colour combinations looked bonkers but others worked, creating a rich palette of pattern shapes and colours.
By overlaying some of the stripes I found it gave the backgrounds more of a checkerboard or Tartan effect.
Testing The Pattern Repeat
The full-screen versions use actual pattern repeats, set to repeat using my CSS style sheet. Meaning I didn’t need large images taking up extra time to download. The scale of the design can be altered too, again using the CSS style sheet.
Buying My Designs
Products featuring my pattern designs are available to buy from my shops hosted by Spoonflower and Contrado. As well as fabrics by the metre, they can produce my designs in a range of home decor items including; tablecloths, bedding, cushions, wallpaper, cushions and wrapping paper / gift wrap.
