Penzance and Cornwall inspired Surface Pattern Illustration Design

- by Sarah Whittle

Penzance and Cornwall inspired Surface Pattern Illustration Design

As a Cornwall based creative graphic design studio, its hard not to be inspired by our Cornish surroundings. You will often find us beachcombing our local beaches for interesting sea life or exploring the countryside for inspirational wildlife.

With all this nature on our doorstep it has inspired us to illustrate and design a range of surface pattern designs, which can be licensed from us so that you can apply the designs to your soft furnishings, apparel or stationery.

So how do we produce such wonderful surface pattern designs?

Sarah starts with a pen and ink or pencil sketch of the the main components of the design. This maybe a fish or any object that has caught her eye. She refines the sketch and then digitalises the refined illustration. She then cleans up the illustration in Adobe Illustrator before repeating the design and choosing a range of colour ways that work with the illustration. The final artwork is set as a repeat pattern that can be used for any surface.

Here are just some of the surface pattern illustrations Sarah has produced. If you would like more information about our illustration services or would like to discuss a commission for a surface pattern design we would love to hear from you.
