Life long learning at Adobe MAX

Updated This Post On 8/8/2018 - Click here to see the visuals of the actual workshop that I attended and grab some goodies.

It's that time of the year again. I am going to Adobe Max next week ( that was in 2013). One of the courses that I am really looking forward to is called: " the power of pattern: how to create & communicate through patterns". The creators of patternpeople, which is a very inspiring and informative website, are offering this course. They asked us to send them 2 (maybe 3) black and white "seeds".  They are then going to show us how to make patterns with them.

Here is what their email to us said: " We're looking for simple doodles - from geometric shapes to squiggly lines" below you can see art that I am considering to use?  Which 2  should I submit?

which design seed for textile print design should i pick

    1. Hi Claudia,

      Thanks for letting me know. A is fun, it’s actually the most popular based on my little research throughout the net. C was created via an app. See the link in my previous top comment above to the app store. It’s a nice app that let’s you design thousands of designs within certain limitations.

    1. Hi Celia,
      I glad you liked B.. one of my favourites. C was created via an app. See the link in my previous top comment above to the app store. It’s a nice app that let’s you design thousands of designs within certain limitations.

  1. I’d go for A and D – they both have a simplicity and a quirkiness – it would be interesting to see how they developed into fuller patterns

  2. Hi… I like your work, particularly A, B, and D. I do have some comments… First, I think you may be “thinking ahead” too far and attempting to create a pattern in the sketches you’ve made… (particularly design C) and I have a concern that perhaps your sketches B and D are a bit too complex for a pattern. If you want to see what i mean, make copies of them and lay them together (or repeat them in your graphics program) to see how they will repeat… they’re really quite busy. Doodle A has sufficient negative space in my opinion, and could quite possibly be simplified even further. With that in mind, what if you picked out just one (or just a few) elements from designs B and D?

  3. I love the graphic impact of C, especially in the photographic capacity. I also love the irregularity of D… there is not enough of that on the market and there is a growing audience. I think it would make a wonderful alternative to polka-dots (yawn).
