Children's Tales

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I was commissioned by the British Library to design a pattern for a new Children's Tales range. Stylistically the brief was open and I was asked to include different objects and characters from a series of classic tales. This brief was especially close to my heart as one of the first projects back after maternity leave it was such a perfect theme!

How was the illustration used:
This was a multiple use illustration - to be used tiled as a pattern on tote bags and other merch including puzzle games and jigsaws, the illustrated elements were also standalone images to be used on textiles and as prints.

How did you make this work:
I created this digitally using procreate on iPadPro and the tiled the pattern using photoshop. Each ekement is a standlaobne illustration as well as being part of the pattern.
