Pattern Design Workshop: 3 Focal Point Prints in 3 Weeks

 

Hi everyone!

I am Simona Fava, Italian graphic designer relocated to Denver, Colorado one year ago. I've been always in love with patterns but I have only recently started creating my own design. After 20 years of graphic design, really would like to change my career to fabric/surface designer. Getting personal feedback from Bonnie is what really made me decide to take this workshop. She's great! And I'm sure her feedback will be very useful.

Here my first theme: PATHWAY OF LOVE (in Italian is "La via dell'Amore"). It's a well known trail the 5 terre (chink-weh tay-reh) in Liguria, Italy where I come from. Five Lands, five small villages connected by trails and railway. Sun, sea, pebbles, wine and hiking.

Some pics in the moodboard are my personal photos.

My brainstorm:

memory / Italian Riviera / Liguria / sea / fishermen / fishermen nets / fish / olive trees / wine / villages / small houses / pebbles / pathway of love / locks / bouganville / trails / hiking / 5 lands / agaves / aeonium / handrails / sea glasses / boats / shells

and my 10 words that inspired my moodboard:

trail / lokcs / bouganville / small houses / pebbles / fishermen's nets / agaves / aeonium / olive trees / boats
