Reading Pattern

Reading Pattern is a side project I created as a creative outlet. It combines my love reading and my passion for pattern making. To see more, please visit Reading Pattern.

The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle

I select a quote that resonated with me from the book I read, in this case "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls. I find or photoshop a hero image that depicts what I pictured in my mind.

Moodboard

Moodboard

I then create a moodboard, selecting images of what I felt or saw while I read the book.

Color Palette

Color Palette

I pick up colors from the moodboard to set my color palette.

Patterns

Patterns

I design a lot of patterns, as many as possible—some abstract, some representational— and refine the top 6.

Products

Products

I apply the patterns to products that are relevant to characters and/or story.
