The intense smell of the ink is still in the air. Your pencil has just softly touched the paper. Your work is not yet finished, it’s still in progress; that special moment right before your artwork is completed. You can already imagine your final design…it’s almost there!
This is a creative invitation to all textile designers to leave your work in an aesthetically unfinished, incomplete state. Your work in progress is the final result. You are encouraged to leave space in your artwork so it looks perfectly unfinished, even though it’s nearing completion. Your design can combine hand-drawn elements with illustrated details and color highlights. Combine digital elements with sketches. Mash up botanical layers with floral arrangements. Your random splash of color is the DNA that keeps the design interesting and enchanting.
This is a calling to all designers who have inspiring ideas for pattern design. The best designs submitted on jovoto will be chosen and presented to select international fashion brands by the client, who is a renowned textile supplier. In addition to winning up to €5,000 in community awards, a huge opportunity awaits, to be licensed by a large fashion brand. For every licensed design, you will be paid €100 for the initial design and an additional €0.20 in royalties for each meter if printed. The amount purchased can be up to 20,000 meters per design.

Recently stumbled on the gorgeous and edible Biscuit Project by the dynamic duo Matt Lain and Toni Caroline! Using a very streamlined color palette, photographer Lain and stylist Caroline, collaborated to bring us this visual treat. It’s impressive how simply altering the color of an everyday object like the biscuit can create such a work of art!
A kaleidoscope of soaring colors bring an update to 70s oranges.
Although nature is cited as the inspiration behind Atelier Kikala’s Pre-Fall 2015, its easy to also see bits of Van Gogh’s Post-Impressonistic landscapes in the collection’s vibrant embroidery. What a masterpiece!
Dark, moody florals, akin to the Dutch Masters, are getting us in the mood for winter. Set out a bouquet of flowers and let them wilt in the heat for design inspiration. Speaking of which, have you seen the work of Ori Gersht? Amazing!
If the heat is cramping your design style, then check out our new stock prints available here.
Loving the recent work of Snedker Studio! The design studio, based in Copenhagen, features the art of the talented Pernille Snedker Hansen. Inspired by traditional craft techniques, Hansen transforms interiors into intricate works of art. “Created one drop at the time and resembling tree growth rings, Pernille’s technique responds to naturally occurring patterns.” For a look into this amazing process there’s a great video on the Snedker website and it’s definitely worth a watch. In addition to the amazing wood paneling, the Snedker online boutique is filled with one of a kind acrylics on watercolor paper that are the perfect art addition to any home.
Keep things moving with denim blues with dusty pink hues.
Why mess with a classic pattern? These bold, blocked stripes feel 70s modern.
