Design for All | Elements | Pattern & Print


[energetic music] – Well, I really like prints, and I really like patterns, like this Madras plaid, like, late 1950s, early 1960s floral. When you put me in front of a floral, I go mad. – This is all about conchs and sea shells. The main print starts the story, and then we love to create these corresponding accent prints. – I love an animal print. – I like to create environments. – I like to research a lot of vintage prints, uh, a lot of vintage artwork, and then we start manipulating. [accelerating drone] We cut piece by piece, one by one. [percussive music] – We modify it digitally, draw it from scratch, hand-paint it. – Playing with stripes, interesting color combinations, the lace details. – Try a damask, or a piqué, or a satin stripe. [spacey percussive music] – Marimekko design is all about bold prints and colors. There is the certain easiness and freedom in the lines. – Of course, the zigzag. It’s a trademark design for Missoni. When my parents discovered this machine could make zigzag movement, it became known as a pattern, and it became iconic. [spacey percussive music] – Here at Michael Graves Architecture and Design, we practice pattern-making. The repeating element, element, element– it builds strength in the space. [spacey percussive music] – This kind of pattern blocking and color. That’s the essence of my work. This is one of my favorites.
