I'm taking part in the MIID summer school. One of the briefs was to produce a pattern suitable for swimwear, which has a tropical/vintage/retro/geometic vibe.
I've been seeing a lot of watermelon imagery and icons around of late and they seem quite fun and summery so I've used watermelons as a basis for my patterns.
It looks like fruit is creeping into a lot of my design work at the moment!
