When designing I try to take simple objects and turn them into something not so ordinary. Take this serving plate, it was designed to coordinate with pillows for a romantic evening for two. I started with a very plain five petal flower and circular center. I then added a nice deep shadow and multiple five petal outlines overlapping one another on top. It now has a lot of energy around it and all the petal layers help create movement and excitement. It didn't take much work but it did take quite a bit of thought. Art is a creative process so take the time to think it all through before beginning. So grab pencil and paper and start sketching, who knows where it will lead.
