My work in textiles – samples

It’s been SO long since I have posted anything, I almost forgot I had this blog.

Recently I had been working for a textile manufacturer as a graphic designer.  The company would receive work from artists (ie. paintings, drawings, vector art, etc.) and I and other designers would take the art apart and rearrange the motifs into repeat patterns.  Everything was done on the computer – we used Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.  After the patterns were done and sent to the mill, presentations had to be printed.  Along with printed pages showing the patterns mock quilts and projects were shown to customers as well.  We designers were so good at mocking up the projects, people thought they were actually photographs!

Here are some samples of textile groups that I have done.  If you are a quilter or a crafter you may recognize some of the artists’ names.  You can see more designs from the company I worked for at Wilmington Prints.
