Hi everyone. I haven’t entered a design competition in ages so decided to challenge myself and do a male design. My designs are usually quite cutesy and feminine, so I wanted to create something a bit more masculine.
My influences were the upcoming trend of 90s acid house and comic graffiti with bright colours for males.
I entered these for the Tigerprint Male Pattern Design Competition. ♡
Lots of funky colours and doodles! I combined the two elements of urban (male, geometric shapes like triangles and hard edges) with rainbows (curves and bright colours) to make this composition.
When I removed the colour the composition was still interesting, with lots going on. There was enough variety in the doodle.
These are all the coloured elements of the composition. I thought these would make interesting icons for gift tags and would make a cool repeating pattern for males. ♡
