“When I work on a pattern, I try to avoid monotonous repetitions by playing with irregularities and variations. In order to make it interesting and fun, you have to incorporate diversity and contrast. Textures, colours and half-tones are the kind of tools I like to work with to give it that extra edge. I tend to look at patterns the same way I look at illustrations. Both need a stimulating and dynamic composition in order to create a pleasing image. Patterns are repetitive, but definitively not boring!”
