Handle with Care

Shape & Line
Illustration: Paper, Fabric, Wood, Acrylic Board , 2019.

I define myself as a graphic designer that mainly focusses on illustration. I enjoy mostly working digitally using illustrator as a way of exploring my interests in publication, fashion and stationary. For my final project “Shape and Line” I have put my attention into creating different types of patterns. Growing up in China and having loved European stained window architecture, I was very inspired in combining the two different cultures and creating a contemporary pattern pieces. To push my pattern designs, I have expanded my practice into using different materials as the basis of my patterns. From using acrylic board, wood and fabric I have shown how diverse my patterns can be.
