Two new patterns created for the Swedish sports fashion brand Stronger. You can see their current collection (including new recolorings of some of my previous work for them) on their website, www.stronger.se.
These new designs are still not in the shop, but they should become available soon.
The first design is verdant green foliage on a black background, and it's designed to be printed oversized, so the big palm fronds appear as large as they would in life. I aimed to keep the style hovering between realistic and graphic, so there is plenty of detail to draw the eye but the overall look is unmistakably illustrative.
The client decided to create two distinct blue colorways for the first debut of this design.
The second design is inspired by coral and sea creatures. After trying many different color variants, we settled on this modern mixture of pink, plum, and grayscale.
