I never thought I would feel like this but let me tell you, I’ve never been so excited with the concept of a summer school before. If you read my previous moodboard posts (tropical paradise and geometric water) you probably know by now that I’m attending MIID Summer School.
Yesterday was the deadline to send our work and today the galleries of the three tracks went online. I was so happy seeing my work there, I know it might not sound much but I’m really proud of the results and the whole experience is making me really motivated to keep creating. Bellow there’s the three designs I submitted for the first briefings:
Beginner Track | Theme: Tropical Paradise
Go figure but the second I saw this theme I knew I wanted to use some tropical birds and fruit. Luckily I had some sketches I had been working on a few months ago on some birds so I just tweaked them a little and used them as my main element in the whole design.
Intermediate Track | Theme: Retro Geometric
For this one I really didn’t knew where I was going when i started sketching but one thing led to another and after picking the color palette things started to come together and in the end I was really satisfied with the result. Since we had the chance to mock it up on some swimwear I was surprised, after asking around, to have such good feedback from the male side and how they would wear it on their beach shorts. Made me even more happier with the design.
Advanced Track | Theme: Water Rays
As for the third one, I just went with the flow.
I’m already working on some coordinates for the Tropical Paradise but one thing is for sure, I’ll definitely turn them into collections. Meanwhile we’ll have to wait till Monday the 11th for the second briefings to come out. I wonder what the themes will be this time… excited!!
