Design Inspiration For Spot
This pattern takes the design Conker Shapes and moves it into a whole new direction. The original design is based on the pale areas seen on the back of conkers. For Spot I have used the outlines of the five conkers themselves to define the shapes of the spots.
Most pattern designers have a collection based on spots. I felt what let them down was that they used the same sized spot equally spaced. This design is more organic from start to finish. To avoid a boring step and repeat, the five spots flip, rotate, and rescale independently, making the design more fluid.
Printing The Pattern
The spots themselves are all white, so could be printed straight onto coloured fabric, or plain wallpaper. They could also be manufactured digitally by printing the colour with the spots being reversed out.
