As a surface designer, colorist, and design consultant for Maine Cottage Furniture I have been asked to create videos that explain the creative process and inspirations behind my work for them. As a result this adds to the appreciation and understanding of the company's products and brand. I wrote and voiced all stories, took all photographs (with except of "Let's Go to the Ocean" where I took about half of the photos), and produced all videos in iMovie.
lets go to the ocean
The process of designing the ocean-themed Coastal Collection of fabrics for Maine Cottage was not as straightforward as I thought it would be. And it all started when "...I was just four years old..."
patterns are everywhere
As a surface designer I "see" pattern designs in my everyday life, and sometimes in unexpected places.
Usually Maine Cottage colors are bright and sunny, like the middle of the day. But sometimes you need colors that are more about the night.
"Discovering" colors is a full-time job and the process requires gathering information from a plethora of visual sources, as well as memories and feelings.
