My Entries for the Hallmark New Baby Contest

On 21, May 2013 | No Comments | In animals, competition, Hallmark, inspiration, my work | By Tina

Hi everyone. I would like to share with you my entries for the Hallmark New Baby Competition. I love children’s design and it is one area that I would love to design for. So the brief really appealed to me.

So here are my entries:

Hallmark New Baby Competition - Sweet Baby Giraffes

Hallmark New Baby Competition – Sweet Baby Giraffes

You may recognise these from the Animal Love Day dedicated to Giraffes? Well I had designed this initially for the Hallmark competition. I just changed the wording to say New Baby. It’s a placement print and a pattern.

I wanted to design a cute patchwork quilt design for a new baby! Read more…

Animal Love Day ‚Äď Butterfly

Dreaming on a Star - Animal Love Day

Hi everyone. Welcome to the 5th Animal Love Day. (Wow the weeks are flying!) ¬†As you probably know by now it’s a weekly feature where I showcase some lovely animal pattern and illustration.

I pick a different animal each week and firstly do my own illustration and then I showcase some fantastic animal patterns and illustrations by other designers

The animals covered will include birds, fish, insects, extinct creatures and mythical creatures.

Today’s guest star is such a pretty little thing. An inspiration for centuries, there are 175,000 species (including moths) and the only¬†continent they can’t be found is in¬†Antarctica.

So I would like to welcome the beautiful butterfly!

I liked the idea of repetitive shapes and wanted to do a purely geometric design. Everything is designed around circles and ovals. I am also a massive Kawaii fan and love their cute, simple designs and bright, happy colours. Read more…
