PATTERN DESIGN COMPETITION (Round 5)
- Status: Closed
- Prize: $100
- Entries Received: 83
- Winner: alexandracol
We have attached the AI file created by us which has the elements for putting them together to form a pattern. You have to try to rearrange and then make it a REPEATABLE ON FOUR SIDES pattern graphic using the elements inside. You should NOT unless necessary change the shape, proportion and color of the first set but more restriction is more flexible for the second set of Characters :
I ) the first set is a group of sea animals : who are now promoting environmental protection, so you may put those meaning into the pattern to enhance its meaning
II) the second set are group of modern DIY cartoon characters which you can try out on www.myotee.com These formed characters are called MYOTeens. In this case you may try to make new characters from www.myotee.com if you think the existing is not good. But you may want to draw them again with Ai. The Logo MYOTee and FF can be used if think that's good for the pattern.
You could use either one of the above set of characters to design the pattern.
Please use your imagination and build a new piece of commercial art from our source, the objective is to apply that onto a piece of art piece and make people like to buy it. You may see the attached examples of Character Patterns. We would choose the one best fit to their targeted market and should fit the customers' appetite. In this case Children or Teenagers.
Hints: Make a piece of art/ painting in the artboard with the element given on the right. Check the source &amp; choose one best fit for your taste. Use the elements to form relationship with each other, remember mood of the final result is very important.
Use methods in background design such as: change of color, transparency, overlapping, in group, change of shape, negative space, adding of texture, change to 3D, distortion, adding of border, change of direction, increase of weight...etc. to surprise me.
