Winter Water Planes Pattern:
Project goal: Create a seamless pattern, to be applied onto physical products sold during the holiday season as well as year round.
Product audience: Children + people who buy for their inner child. 
Project special guidelines: No use of christmas elements, but still be suitable for christmas use.
Technical considerations: must be small scale

Creation process: When designing for children, I love making patterns that happen on a surface. When you can dive inside and travel through a magical world, it invites kids to explore and imagine. I started this pattern design knowing I want to focus on some form of transportation, and that it will take place in winter (hint of Christmas but not too straight forward). Eventually I chose water planes, because their unique features give a sense of flying in a dream.

Who is in each plane? did they just arrive or are they taking off soon? so many stories than can inspire a child's curiosity. The color palette is crisp and snowy, adding another layer to the story and also making it suitable for the holiday season and to the christmas spirit.

Result: Printed onto notebooks and wrapping paper, available at my shop Knuffel.
