I'm currently designing items for a few publications which are of course planning for fall and winter at this point, that's the normal editorial cycle. But it is Spring soon and I wanted to present a fun mood board "slide show" to maybe inspire some of your own designing. Many of these are photos taken by me and some are incorporating Pantone's colors of 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity (effectively light pink and baby blue).
I live in Northern California in the SF Bay Area so my spring arrives much sooner than many in the country. But our climate here supports a different type of flora than that of the northeast where I used to live. So my spring mood board is a little different from what it might be if I were still living east.
I'm designing patterns and dyeing fibers and fabrics with these colors and the ideas of fresh, wet with dew, bright and blooming, light and still a bit chilly in mind.
I'd love to hear what ideas you have for projects you are planning this spring!
