Dahlia collection | Skillshare Projects



Dahlia collection

Creating this pattern collection was great fun and also a great challenge especially since I'm not a designer or illustrator and all I know about it was self-taught. I draw and design for fun but it's something I really love to do. Pattern design is new for me but I can really picture myself working on creating patterns everyday. 

Here are my modest patterns. I hope you enjoy!

This collection was almost entirely inspired by a dahlia vase that I have in my living room. I just adore the flowers and feel very inspired by them every day. I love when one simple thing is able to inspire and make me happy only by looking at it.


I usually sketch a lot, almost always random things that pop up in my mind, but this time I opted to take several pictures of the flowers and outline them directly on Illustrator. I found it would be easier and faster to achieve the result I was looking for. 

 These are the motifs I came up with. I then changed them as I went on with the patterns.


And here is my collection:


And finally here are a few mock-ups for possible products:


Thanks for taking a look at my project! :)
