Textile Orbit – The third challenge!
“Barcode Deluxe” is the third textile design brief for the Textile Orbit, a carefully curated group of the best textile and pattern designers on the jovoto platform. The designers in the Textile Orbit have the opportunity to access this and other exciting textile design challenges in the future.
Introduction – Barcode Deluxe
Toothpaste, pedestrian crossing or barcode deluxe? We wonder if Coco Chanel was aware what a fashion craze she started by developing a collection based on the original nautical striped Breton shirt back in the 1920s. Stripes still rule in the world of fashion and the current trends show no sign of letting up.
Surprise us with your very own interpretation of the classic stripe! Create extraordinary, new variations of stripes and mix them up with exciting new elements. Artificial-looking stripes on top of large-scale flowers and bright colors could be key to the look. Dynamic, expressive hand-painted brushstrokes create a vibrant art-house feel that could update eclectic patterns. Experiment with contrasts, structures, scanned elements and techniques. Don’t be afraid of complexity!
Out-of-place stripes on large-scale digital images are just one of the various options this theme offers. Go further in your interpretation by using digital interventions or random glitches to transport your print into your own futuristic realms. See the full moodboard here.
