Personalized Apparel

Our first venture into pattern design for fabrics. For this private commission, we use our signature non-repeating pattern technique. Two initials seamlessly and organically transform in and out of each other.

PATTERN

Our first venture in pattern creation for apparel gave us a great insight into the technical limits of fabric printing. Our work is usually for extremely high definition print. Intaglio printing, for example, is printed at upwards of 8000 dpi. Most fabric printing is typically in the 250 dpi area, so we tailored our design accordingly.Β 
The design was initially for a square scarf. The two initials of the wearer geometrically blend in and out of each other. Typically with our work, a piece can be read from two perspectives: from afar and close up. From a distance, the pattern appears to be shimmering color. On closer inspection, a geometric logic emerges.

  • The use of innovative patterns is standard on banknote design, but is rarely seen anywhere else. Few designers have access to bespoke tools and specialist knowledge.

Seeing this gap in innovation, patterns like this are designed for fabrics, to work in a variety of colours.

  • An X transforms into an O and back again organically, in all directions. This is a technique used in security document design – the production of money. Naturally, a pattern that cannot be created with conventional design software such as Photoshop or Illustrator is hard to counterfeit.

  • A new pattern produced with our security document techniques. The pattern transforms organically in all directions – a process that is impossible to create with conventional design software. The use of innovative patterns is standard on banknote design, but is rarely seen anywhere else – until now!

  • Craft doesn't lie - it's the indelible expression of Human ingenuity, intent and potential. If I was a betting man, and I am, I would put money on there being no other species in the galaxy that compares to our range and depth of artistic expression, and our craft ability to bring soul into manifest reality through craft. πŸ’ΈπŸŽ¨πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸŽ€πŸŒŽπŸ’ŽπŸŽπŸ‘„πŸŽ©πŸπŸ¦„πŸ¬πŸ‹

  • Ironically, as I was walking from booth to booth in the #miblive event in Islington yesterday, I set my program down. The program contained a Β£100 note! - one of our popular promotional designs! The Β£100 features an authentic design, and English writer Samuel Johnson. To whoever finds it, please don't try to spend it! 
Thanks again to @makeitbritish @makeitbritishliveshow for a great event. 
Also great to meet @vannersmill @mcrfashioninstitute @gieveslondon and others :) πŸ’ΈπŸŽ¨πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸŽ€πŸŒŽπŸ’ŽπŸŽπŸ‘„πŸŽ©πŸπŸ¦„πŸ¬πŸ‹

It was great to meet @mcrfashioninstitute @vannersmill @wowfabrics.co.uk among others! #miblive
  • Attending @makeitbritish in Islington today - great event. This was from Day one, a panel discussion on Craft Versus Technology. I liked Professor Stephen Russell's quote: "tech is a tool, craft is what turns it into something valuable." #miblive
