Case Study

The MicroLife Collection

The MicroLife Collection was created based on WGSN's trend forecast "Earthed" for the Fall/Winter 17/18 season. It is based on microscopic views of nature, interlaced surfaces, and a limited palette of colours ranging from ivory to olive khaki and navy. The collection taps into my background in fine arts as well as molecular and cellular biology.

The collection is targeted to the quilting, social greetings, and home decor markets. The collection was designed using hand drawn illustrations along with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. All final patterns are in Illustrator format and have been made into repeating patterns.

Below are images of the backbeat, mood board, star customer report, sketches, reference images, and some final patterns in the MicroLife Collection as well as a quilt block mock-up. The complete MicroLife Collection can be seen in my password protected surface design portfolio. Contact me for the link and time sensitive password.
