Feifei Ruan : CLEVER RUSE - Pattern Design


Commissioned | Professional

An Asian mythology style scarf, with a Mulan-inspired heroine. Commissioned by Illumicrate, for celebrating the 3rd anniversary.
Additional Information:
The client wanted to pay homage to Disney-Mulan. So besides the main character, we also hid the "dragon" and the "cricket" among the flowers. More than a pattern, we wanted to make it playful and give people a bit surprise.
