Coding The Files
To be able to go back to Illustrator and recreate all the images it is important to code them in a way that can be reproduced. Here my designs are from designs B to E. The first number relates to the colour of the splash itself, then the second number is the colour code of the background. So for instance C 33 31 means the splash is colour 33 – black. Then the background is 31 bright cyan. Rolling your mouse over the image should display its code.
Placing The Pattern In A Location
To give context I combined a selection of finished designs with a straight-on shot of the chair used in my design for mid century modern chairs. Adding a fake carpet and simple skirting board. For every image I altered the colour of the real chair to complement the surface patterns. For each design I also created a simple version that was just the pattern, to show how the design could be used for fabric, lampshades, and other surfaces.
Creating This Page
With so many colour combinations it would be impractical to show all of them. Here I have chosen a selection of combinations that I feel are interesting. Smaller screen sizes are designed to display less colour examples.
See other variations in this family of patterns: Splash, Stars, Stripy Stars.
The pattern would be great for wallpaper but also fun for gift-wrapping and fabric too. I would love this design to have another life taken up by a manufacturer. Please contact me if you would like a high resolution file or to talk about how we could work together.
