Transport patterns

These four transport patterns are a lot more complex than the ones used recently but they still serve the same purpose.

Intended to be pleasing yet harmonious, they will blend easily into the background of a seat yet passengers will find them pleasing. They are intended to be unobtrusive but inviting.

Fabric for bus or coach

Four transport patterns again, and a really excellent design intended for areas where there is a perhaps more activity.

This design resembles the type of pattern used so often for sweaters and is a little more noticeable than the patterns used previously. It is shown, however, in quite sombre colours that would make it ideal for use as a coach fabric or even as a bus fabric.

Again, this pattern was created using the excellent Filter Forge software with, for this pattern, the Bicolor Pattern filter by Dearkx8.

D_Composite

A simple pattern and yet one that can look so good when used for transport seating that needs a restful ambiance.

Not all patterns need to be complex and it’s knowing what to use to create the right atmosphere. Once again, I like the small repeat and the simple but direct colours and I think this would find an equally good home as a general furnishing fabric.

Again, this pattern was created using the excellent Filter Forge software with, for this pattern, the Fun Shapes filter by Ravi Rajcoomar.

Transport patterns

More transport patterns, this time using a very simple but effective pattern of stars. I have to say that this is a pattern I like for it’s pleasing shape and small repeat.

Again, this pattern was created using the excellent Filter Forge software with, for this pattern, the AL_PatternMaker 1 by Lorenzen.

Transport Fabric Designs

Another composite of four patterns, again in four different colours, but this time of a more whimsical nature but still intended to be used as seating fabric for bus, coach or train.

As I said yesterday, designs for public transport fabric needs to be inconspicuous and not too colourful. These designs are exactly that, flat, seemingly uninteresting colours, but enlivened by a cute and humorous design that lifts the fabric and makes for a more interesting transport experience for the user. Remember that, often a transport user experiences a fabric pattern only for a short time and so more striking patterns are allowed.

This pattern was created using the excellent Filter Forge software with, for this pattern, the AL_PatternMaker 1 by Lorenzen.

Transport fabric

This is a composite of four related-by-colour patterns intended, eventually, to be transport patterns for the seating fabric of either bus, coach or train.

Patterning for transport needs to be inconspicuous but that does not mean it should be boring. This pattern is the first of new series I have produced that use some of the best elements of older, mid-century designs incorporated into a modern framework. Their intended use is for public transport and I will, over the course of this year, be incorporating them into 3D models of the appropriate public transport vehicles.

The patterns were created using Filter Forge software, the particular filter used for this pattern being Fabric Frenzy by DreamWarrior.
