Business Cards

Here are the 15 different designs that I created to go on one side of my business cards. I chose to have rounded edged cards as I wanted to have something a little bit different, even though I know rounded cornered cards are popular as well.

Pattern Designs

Here are some of the designs that I have created from my mono print knickers. I want to try and use them on actual knickers, by screen printing the design onto fabric or using tshirt transfer paper to get the images onto the fabric and making some knickers out of it. If not, then try and transfer the design directly onto a brought pair of knickers as it is the idea that I want to portray, not my skills on a sewing machine.

Changing your mind

I went back to the idea of layering images over one another, and wanted to try it with different objects and the idea of changing you mind from one option to another. Some of these images will go into the final book that I am going to create.

Book Experiment

I tried experimenting with the design and layout of a book on Issuu, but having problems with the order in which images should be placed, and which ones should and shouldnt be chosen to stand inside it.

Patterned pants

After my final critique, I had some feedback as to the final outcome of my work. The idea of a book was suggested, of which I was confused as to the layout and how I should place the order. Another suggestion was an interactive online piece, which seemed to me to be the wrong direction to take, as the interactive piece I created in the last unit was not as finalised or established as it needed to be, and was not successful in my eyes.

Along side a book of developments, ideas and outcomes could be a pair of hand made knickers with my own pattern design on them to incorporate into the book and make the book a kind of look book for companies. When you buy the underwear you get the little book for free showing you different pattern designs, options of what to wear with items and more abstract images of interest.

I do feel as though the direction of this project is swaying too far from the original topic of indecisiveness. I agree in it now focusing on decisions in general, as well as the choices we make, and the pleasure of having to make a decision amongst so many different options. I do want to try and employ this into the book more, as it is something I am interested in. Being able to communicate my thoughts and ideas that I employ into an image to others is something that I want to show in this work. Thinking too much and trying different options often leads to me being wrapped up in my own little world. However I do like the diversity and array of options in which my work leads to.

Tights pattern experiment

A pattern I created using the drawing of tights that I created. It repeated the same image which I think looks effective. But I want to try and create one that has no white gaps in it. It is something that I can see being used on wallpaper or curtain fabric, a bit different. Having large scale tights on the wall of your living room is different, but still quite sheek (if thats the right word to be using).

Experimenting with washing line

Here is an idea for presenting my work. I wanted to have the images I had done in frames, but having 30 images at A3 size, it works out quite expensive, even though I feel it would look effective. So an alternative experiement im trying, is using a washing line as a method of displaying the images. It is also a good way of being able to move around the object to see the space, and the layering of the images on the lines can be used in conjunction with the topic of decisions and choices I have been focusing my work on.
