EXP 2 - Patterns Galore!

nur für Incom-Mitglieder

Patterns are everywhere we look: from the seats on the train to our clothes, from posters, wallpapers and packaging to windows, floors, and dishes. It's part of our experience as humans: it represents tribes, cultures, religious beliefs, and historic periods. We associate them with materials, textures, fruits, plants or animals. They warn us of danger, or make our environment lighter, they calm us down with their geometries, repetitions and logical structures, or excite us and drive us crazy with their perceived irregularities and colours.

This Expertise Module is a lab where students will learn the basics of pattern design, from the most basic, based on simple geometric shapes, to some more elaborate and complex ones, and will experiment with analogue and digital tools to create their own style and patterns.

Students will use a topic of their interest as a creative source for concepts that would later be translated into moodboards, elements, geometries, and patterns, and will apply them to mock-ups for their own projects and/or products.

For this, it is suggested that students will experiment with analogue techniques, such as coloured pencils, markers, watercolours, etc., and also with digital tools of their preference, to develop their style.

For this course, some materials will be required for the experimentation phase:

  1. Paper to draw and paint on (A4 size drawing blocks work better)
  2. Some tracing paper
  3. Markers, fineliners, pencils and coloured pencils.
  4. Rulers and compass (if you have one).
  5. Any other materials for drawing and painting are welcome, although it is not necessary to buy them! (if you have some watercolours and brushes at home, bring them! / a small, low price set would suffice). 
  6. A computer with design software of your choice (Illustrator, Photoshop, Affinity, Procreate, InDesign, etc.)

Entwurf/Beleg, Projekt, Präsentation

For the final project, students will choose a topic of their interest as a creative source for concepts that would later be translated into moodboards, elements, geometries, and patterns, and will apply them to mock-ups for their own projects and/or products. The results will be shown in a short presentation. Both the process and the final results, as well as the presentation, will be evaluated.
