Stripy Jugs Pattern Design

Stripy Jugs Pattern

Stripy Jugs

Design Inspiration

Although these odd, little stripy jugs were bought separately from different charity shops, I felt they would combine very well as a pair. I cutout the photos then tried different ways of interlocking them to make an interesting pattern design.

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 Stripy Jugs designs from. Whenever I find a new colour I add this to all of my designs to explore if the new colour way would work with the pattern. Here I have shown Stripy Jugs in 12* design variations. In the second series – B,  I have treated the two stripy jugs differently which makes even more combinations.

* Smaller screen sizes are designed to display less colour variations.

Placing The Pattern In A Location

To give context I combined each finished design 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 wallpaper. 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.

The Future

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.
