Project Description

Create a surface pattern design collection that is cohesive through the use of color and motifs.

ASSIGNMENT

The assignment is to create an entire surface pattern design collection including at least one main image, supporting patterns, and a few basic supporting patterns.

DELIVERABLE

When you are all done creating your beautiful collection, upload your collection and your process to the student gallery. A complete student project should include the following:
-A little bio about yourself and your project 
-Some process photos to show your progress from sketch to final design 
-How you see this collection being used (ex: gift bags, party set, etc.)
-Your final collection 

WHAT​ ​YOU’LL​ ​NEED 

-Sketching​ ​supplies​ ​(paper,​ ​pen,​ ​pencil) 
-Adobe​ ​Photoshop​ ​(You are more than welcome to work in Illustrator for this course instead of PS) 
-Some​ ​type​ ​of​ ​digital​ ​drawing​ ​tool​ ​(I​ ​use​ ​a​ ​Wacom​ ​Intuous​ ​Pro​ ​Tablet)
