From Procreate to a product: My design process-

Iโ€™M SO EXCITED TO RELEASE MY NEW PRODUCTS INTO YOUR HOMES. I honestly really am.

Although look how pretty my shelves look?๐Ÿคฃ They wonโ€™t when they get packed off to their new homes.

I think the longest part of the process has been finding a supplier that I trust and get good vibes from....and it turn out that Lau is a fellow Small business owner, Yay!!!!

I emailed around 6 suppliers at first, some took weeks to respond and others just didnโ€™t sit right with me. So if youโ€™re in the design process and looking for suppliers, make sure that you feel comfortable with that person.

To design my new products Iโ€™ve started in my sketch book with a pencil. To me I feel less pressurised this way. I then move my sketches into procreate and start the magic with my favourite pens in procreate. I love a bold outline and block colour but Iโ€™m also a sucker for texture so thatโ€™s why Iโ€™ve combined the two.


When designing I really love to use different mediums like collage, pencil, pen and paint. There feels way less pressure to start in a sketch book rather than going straight into procreate.


I drew these from a mixture of books and some of these are sketches form my house plants.



I then photograph my sketches and roughly trace over them in Procreate and then the magic begins. Now I know the kinds of styles that I like Iโ€™ve now invested in some new procreate pens too. There are so many free pens available too.




Here I am drawing out one of my mug

designs.


I usually start by drawing items on their own

then combine the imagery after playing about with different compositions.



Once with some of my designs I then send off for some samples to see how my design fits on a particular product and to see if Iโ€™m happy with the quality.


YES I AM HAPPY!!



Here are some of my mugs ready for my launch next week on March 31st-7.30pm for newsletter subscribers.


Thanks for reading and I hope to see you online on the 31st March.
