Here’s my first offering of what promises to be a torrent of damask patterns, available now on Creative Market.
The package comes with lots of options…
To me, salespeople are sorcerers who can walk into a room and magically turn No into Yes and skinflints into big spenders. From where I sit, it’s awe inspiring.
That’s why when a great salesperson shows me a great idea for a big ticket sale on a clunky PowerPoint presentation, it breaks my heart. I’ve got to do what I can to help show it off for the genius it is.
I’m really happy with this illustration I did for the ongoing story project, I am not actually a butterfly.
Here’s a look at how its parts and pieces came together.
This floor mural was carefully researched, layered and rendered for a client who requested a zodiac theme at the interior entry to her residence. The colors were chosen both to harmonize with the interior space and for their symbolic meaning. The piece was precisely diagrammed, but we agreed the final bordering should be done with […]
I was looking for something in my archives and happened on this. I decided I had better release it to the digital universe before its pixels flicker and fade away.
I think these were done for the 1997 Halloween party, a Westwood tradition…
Continuing to play with downloadable pattern backgrounds, I’ve added this new seamless geometric pattern. The package includes layered vector files (.ai and .eps) as well as two transparent .png files (in two different scales).
Most of my downloadable patterns have been used for website backgrounds, and that’s a fascinating world. It’s very similar […]
This pattern collection is inspired by the intriguing beauty of the colors in a snowflake pattern I created last winter. The coordinated set is now available for purchase on Spoonflower and continues to tell the story of a still and quiet winter wood. The palette is simple (and was developed spontaneously). Maybe that’s why it works so well across so many uses.
Look for new patterns and pattern colorways, scheduled for release about April 23. They’ll be available as fabric, wallpaper, wall decals, and giftwrap, too.
At the moment, we’re strengthening our sales presentations over at H1Talent, a job matching site for H1-B visa holders and the companies that seek them. We’ve got great numbers, but we needed more imagery to communicate the business concept, as well as some data visualization to bring those great numbers to life.
Just added to my shop on Creative Market, this new pattern tile was sparked by a 17th century Dutch motif.
The inspiration was a beautiful Dutch reproduction…
A bakery client wanted to take their popular product to the next level and asked for a full business rollout, including brand identity, website, packaging, advertising and product ideas.
Here’s a schematic from my product development notes. See any of these images in a larger size by […]
I’ve been looking for ways add dimension to this pattern design, which I showcased in a previous post. It’s the kind of design that really needs to be lived with and considered over time. Tiny photo mockups only tell a small part of its story. I asked myself […]
