Aff407 Candie

This pattern is very much in the early 1960s style using motifs of stylised flowers which would, in later years, become much more flamboyant but which, for now, were a little more restrained.

The colour scheme is a simple blue and pink for the motif and a contrast and non-invasive scheme for the squares behind. The intention with this pattern was to create a design which looked pleasant and perhaps a little homely. My intention was to create a range of products on Redbubble which were both for homeware and for fashion and you can see the result above.

I did try other colour schemes but none of them seemed to have the appeal of the design above, which was the first one that I created and so there is perhaps a lesson there for me to learn. My wife is always telling me not to mess with the designs that I create because I rarely seem to make them any better!

Wheels Of Colour

Redbubble Products Made With This Design

This design is rather an amalgamation of different motifs that have been put together to resemble the tile patterns that were produced in the UK mid-century.

I have taken some liberties with the colours and, although the colouring is still firmly mid-century, it is much brighter and more extreme than you perhaps might have found that time. The colours, as you may have guessed, are from my extended mid-century palette.

The intention with this particular pattern was to produce a very colourful design for both clothing and homeware products such as cushions. I have included an image which shows four of this range made with Redbubble where I hope that you will agree that they produce good-looking and pleasant patterned final products. For the want of a better name I decided to title them as shown above.
