Mock up design, Surface pattern design

Valentines theme surface pattern design

I wanted to share a Valentine themed surface pattern design I created recently. It was originally going to be submitted to the Make it in Design Valentines call out earlier this month, but sadly I ran out of time, so thought I would share here instead for those interested.

I started off by drawing some motifs and built them up slowly, adding one by one, until I thought I had enough in which to make a pattern tile with.

Next I changed some of the icons around, or tweaked the size and scale of them etc until they fitted together well and I was happy with how it looked.

Then when i had finished creating my repeat tile, I decided to mock-up my design onto some products. This is always FUN to do, plus it helps to visualise how the pattern will look.

I hope this inspires you to create your own patterns and mock them up onto some products of your choice. You wont be disappointed with the end result!
