Surface Design: Bikes in the Countryside

April 2017

Scenic bike rides, wild flowers, and the countryside inspired this surface design collection. I imagine the designs being used in a variety of applications, from apparel to accessories.

  1. Dew on Dandelion
    Designs such as this could be made into a repeat for a structured dress or skirt, used on coat pockets, or on shirt collars.
  2. Butterfly
    This butterfly could be incorporated into a larger design or be a stand-alone piece such as a hair pin.
  3. Bike with Flower Basket
    More delicate designs might find a home on formal attire such as a jacket, skirt, or a dress.
