Description:

Combine my vision with yours by requesting a custom version. Comment on a design or by private message to the sef account.


This design ⇑ is a tessellation of folded paper boats (in the English rather than oriental origami tradition), brightly decorated in ancient style (eg Greek and Egyptian) with eyes to ward off evil. Currently displaying a version in Spoonflower's sailing contest palette. Other colours, stylings, sizes and orientations are available on request and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.

sef

sef says: As a tessellation, this one's actually rather trivial (though you do have to fold your paper boat just right!). It's the decoration which makes it more interesting.

su_g says: The white sails of the boats really 'pop' when you look at this as yardage, a dramatic and graphic design! Interesting to see the differences in the "color picker" results too - even in this restricted palette - with the dark teal coming out as a gray in SF's picker... (don't tell me the average of dark teal and pale blue is gray?)

sef says: I thought it was a very good palette for the theme and was expecting to see lots of entries eventually - probably mostly using the blues more, though.

whimzwhirled says: This is a great design Sef. I was troubled with inspiration on this challenge. The color combo wasn't connecting. You did an awesome job but I'm really looking forward to your geek entry.
