Printed inspiration #1

colorful and surreal design pattern print

Yupiiii, today I inaugurate the new blog´s section where I will show you prints that I designed and what inspired me to create them. The inspiration to create a print or another kind of art can come from various sources. Today I start showing the Circus collection, wich I designed to Trevisan Concept. The inspiration came while I was visiting the Maison & Objet in Paris (I’ve talked about this incredible fair here).

It is realy important to be always watching everything around us. Creativity does not come out of nowhere, the ideas are always connections of our repertoire that are stored in the brain plus our interpretation. Magazines, covers, packaging, fashion, posters, blogs like this (Aháá), everything goes into our information box and as the repertoire grows, easier it is to create new ideas.

When I visited the Maison & Objet, a huge home decoration fair that happens in Paris twice a year, I have observed that many stands had the circus-themed decor, or even some products like wallets and purses. Added to this a lot of memories of carousels images that I saw in Paris. It didn’t take long and all that information became the mood board above (ok I compiled just a little bit:P)

I also associate the Christian Lacroix designs, which I’m a big fan and I identify with his aesthetics. In the image above are examples of the designer’s art, surreal, colorful and irreverent and jolly.

All this information on the brain added to my interpretation of all of it,  resulted in the collection below. 🙂

The prints were applied on some home decor objects. I loved the collection and I was realy proud to see the interpretation of what is around applied to design.
