Hataitai Bay boat sheds sit clustered together, suspended, stretching out toward the open ocean. A crisp Wellington morning captures their fresh yet serene environment.
By The Bay is inspired by weatherboard lines, rickety stilt structures and the shed form viewed from multiple angles. Paring these elements down to the point of abstraction and looking at the illustrations of Nigel Peake influenced the balanced, clustered yet crisp composition throughout the final designs.
These designs are hand printed using silk screens with a maximum of two colours - the overlap creating the third colour.
