Photoshop Patterns

I have created some animal illustration characters for my hallmark project. We have been asked to make and create an outcome in the form of cards, wrapping paper or any gift products, using Monty Python as the inspiration. I used the crazy patterns from the animation introduction as my starting point. Being a textile designer I focused on patterns and decided to create my own, I’ve found my project has taken its own spin on things. For my next stage I might look into some surrealism to create a narrative in my cards and gift products, I want to create a collection of gift products that fit together with a quirky kitsch edge.

Hallmark Two Week Project

We have just started our two-week project for Hallmark Card Company, the theme is based on Monty Pythons flying Circus. We have been asked to create a paper gift concept of our choosing, either a card, wrapping paper or box like package for gifts. First I began looking into surrealism as Monty Python the sketch show has many unusual juxtapositions which could be translated well into a paper idea. We also have to consider the market we are designing for, is it a special occasion and for who? What life stage are they? are they buying for others?

I have been looking for any interesting images that may spark an idea, here are some that I have gathered so far.

“‘Pop-Up Book’, This pop-up book follows a small boy’s daily walk with his dog. No sooner have they set out, when the boy’s imagination takes them over and allows them to visit distant lands. As the book progresses the magical dog turns into different animals taking the boy through dramatic landscapes, only to return home safely at the end of it all.”
