Electro Pattern Design

Introducing Electro

Electro pattern design started was originally inspired by Venetian blinds! Turn your head to the right so see what I mean.

Pattern Repeat Experiments

Rotating the early Venetian Blind designs and tightening up the spacing created a dramatic sparky outline in-between the pattern.

Colour Palettes

I use a carefully chosen palette of around 60 colours. I then work through all of the colours for each of the elements in the design.

Colour Combinations

Experimenting with different colour combinations I saved the most interesting as pattern repeats, swatches and squares – for Instagram.

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 capsules 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.
