Flower for Drôle de Monsieur

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I was contacted by the french brand "Drôle de Mosieur" to do an illustration over their famous quote, the maxim of the brand "not from paris madame". They wanted something to express the brand evolution and how this specific quote is blooming and catching, so I went floral.

How was the illustration used:
The illustration use is to be printed and embroidered on a large part of this season's collection, including cap, jacket, coat, sweater and T-shirt.

How did you make this work:
It's a digital drawing made to be translated into embroidery. I have to find the right balance between a more detail work and the right amount of color. The drawing was also supposed to work on a few very different colored backgrounds. A tight relation with the brand and a very clear artistic direction from them was key to the success of this collaboration.
