Textile Graphics and Patterns

Pattern Design, Lettering

2020
I assisted in the design of bedding, textiles, and home goods for Smarts & Crafts Home. The Color Block comforter contained over 100 unique colors and corresponding names. I designed the lettering design for each color name, in collaboration with Sandra Lopez-Naz, a textile designer at Todd Oldham Studio. The color names also made their way on to a color wheel design floor pillow and wall art.

I also designed the alphabet artwork for the Modern Alphabet comforter. The alphabet was made using minimal shapes, in a design that utilizes positive and negative space interchangeably. Additionally, I designed a rainbow raindrop pattern which then was applied to kid’s home decor like window curtains and a play tent.
