Red Squirrel Collection
I wanted the Red Squirrel Collection to show the squirrel's surroundings, so I added some of it's favourite tree leaves into the patterns and also some of its recognised food, nuts and acorns. The colour scheme is based on the natural fur colourings and some brighter contrasting colours for a more modern effect. The following shows a hero design, some placements, secondaries and blenders, I still have some editing to do to refine the final collection and choose which ones from all these to submit into that.
I wanted the hero to be busy and focusing more on two of the key colours around the squirrels with a hint of the yellow coming through in some little leaves. This was half dropped to give it a more pleasing repeat.
