Welcome to my UNIKO Studios Design Team feature post; one I've very excited to share! Let's begin...
Source of Inspiration: Recently, I was incredibly fortunate to win a seat in On Trend, the first class designed and taught by the incredibly talented, Taheerah Atchia, well known for her skill in mixing education/research with inspiration. In this class, she focuses on trends, offering us "a comprehensive look a the phenomenon of trends - how they are born where they come from, how to spot them and how to use them.' A tall order and WOW! Does she ever deliver! The lessons - which feature five different current trends - are engaging; her translations of these trends into cards, amazing. She has definitely poured her heart and soul into this project!
Of course, a class is also an invitation for 'assignments', and that, my friends, is what I'm sharing with your today.
My *Assignments*: Taheerah's first lesson focused on Ultra Violet, Pantone Colour of the Year 2018. Described as "complex and contemplative," mysterious and intriguing, symbolic of "unconventionality" and "artistic brilliance", how can one not be tempted to play with this amazing colour and "push boundaries through creative outlets"? So...play I did!
Drawing inspiration from images/photos Taheerah curated for the class (in the lessons and on Pinterest), I've made a series of cards, featuring a wide assortment of UNIKO products in my replications.
The sequence of my 'assignments' is straightforward: the original source followed by my translation.
I'll leave you to look, uninterrupted *grin*:
(no sentiment; the colour - three shades of DI inks, - and shimmer -
Moonstone Nuvo paste - make a statement on their own)
(Copic coloured: BV02, 13, 17; YG03, 17, 68)
Hopefully, my cards have given you inspiration in ways to use your UNIKO products AND incentive to sign up for Taheerah's class. Maybe you'll even become a fan of ultra violet/purple, too! I'm aiming to share more UNIKO and ON TREND lessons in the future.
