Another Tigerprint Comp..........

Afternoon peeps,

So I got the chance to enter this month's 'What is Love?' competition with Tigerprint & emailed my entries over earlier today. I have to say I was really pleased with them until they went online & I saw them sat with all the other entries. They kinda looked a bit bland next to the other entries! There are some really lovely submissions and mine didn't seem to stand out at all.I think while my colour palette looked pretty vibrant on screen, I need to work more on grabbing your attention & really focusing more on the colours I use ! Something to work on for next month's competition x he he ! Always striving to do better ! Designers fault is being too critical !

I could see this colourful card design working best on textured card. The inside would be left blank, making this suitable for a number of occasions : i.e. weddings, just to say, birthday, valentines day etc...... I have also tried to target both males & females for this card , using a funky colour palette & I think it translates well across both genders.

Now these little designs below are a tad different to a lot of the other Tigerpprint submissions so hopefully will catch the judges eye ! I decided to add my pattern design onto the product type I felt it best worked on ! So this is what I came up with x

 Taking inspiration from the vibrant bright’s that shaped the SS12 catwalks & will run through to SS13, I have designed a quirky collection of stationary options. My perception of love was getting married to my hubby, & so for every soon to be Bride, a jotter was a must to write down all the wedding plans for the perfect day with him !

Following on from the above option with the stationary jotter design, I could imagine a whole collection of vibrant note books which could be aimed a such a wide market audience ! This could also translate well across gifting product/ wrap or bags ! I am now the big 30, but still very young at heart & adore this option ! Surely this is injecting a lot of fun & love into your existing ranges ?
It’s always important to let your loved ones know you care ! I love the idea that these ickle sticky notes could be left around the house for my hubby to find with little meaningful phrases on them! ‘Get tidying this house Mr' ! he he

This last design is a quirky card design & again I feel it would work best printed onto textured card . The inside would be left blank, making this suitable for a number of occasions: i.e. weddings, just to say, birthday, valentine’s day etc...... like the first option !
Do you like them ? Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Enjoy your weekend peeps , I won't be posting on here till Monday now ! But of course that means 'Illustrations Overload ' ! Woheee x
