Bloom: Cultivating Happiness
In this project, I explored mark making, hand rendering techniques and printmaking through an overall theme of “bloom”, with the inspiration and subject matter of live flowers. Through studying various flower-arrangements and those within nature, I developed motifs to evoke the mood of “cultivating happiness”. With the design guidelines of a 5-colour palette and two-screen print, the final design collection is bold and refined.
There are two elements to the final collection of designs: hand-painted paper designs, and printed textile swatches.
