New Vector Pattern Available - Tropical Collage Floral - Case Study

New Vector Pattern Available - Tropical Collage Floral - Case Study

I have found the collage style really exciting and I've been looking forward to exploring it more ever since I finished a collage for surface design workshop at the end of 2016. Combining it with a tropical floral motif created an energetic and unique print with quite a lot of layered details. This is a little different to what I have designed previously and that's only ever a good thing. 

To get started, I used my iPad Pro for exploration and sketching because this tool facilitates the creation of a lot of textures, shapes and ideas in a short space of time. It also allowed me to be more loose with the movement of brushes and then use erasing capabilities to create a contrasting clean 'slice' effect that I might otherwise have through tearing and cutting in traditional collage. While it was entirely digitised, I recreated the same techniques and approaches used with paper. 

In addition, the colour palette is very digital and working towards a techno-tropical mood seen it other glitchy or digitally distressed tropical prints. This has allowed for a unique combination of trends and I think it's the act of combining trends that can help a design stand out from the crowd.

The amount of details in the motif allowed a lot of flexibility for co-ordinating prints and I'm happily offering these co-ordinates as added value, included in the price of the main design, for a limited time. 

Tropical Collage Floral & coordinate

This pattern is sold as an exclusive buyout licence. The design is a vector repeat and is ready to edit or use as required. This design includes a complementary coordinate pattern (shown below main design).

Upon purchase, the layered Adobe Illustrator file will be emailed to you, to be used with full rights. The design will be removed from the website before the final files are sent to you.


Technical information about this design

If you're interested in this design, it is available for both royalty licensing or exclusive flat fee purchase at the moment. The actual design file you'll receive is going to be an Adobe Illustrator file which means this pattern was created using vector shapes and is completely re-scalable without loss of quality which is super handy for production.

On this design, as it has a more complex background layout, the layers are cleanly organised below the master layout to enable full flexibility and access to this design. 

The file is layered with the original layout, a perfect square block ready for repeat and a pre-made pattern swatch that repeats and scales within Adobe Illustrator so it really is all ready to go.

How to purchase this design

If you want to grab it now, you can pay online via my product listing above or you can also email me if you need to pay by invoice instead.
