In my last post I showed you how I went about painting a colorful Bantam rooster. Now I can show you the final designs.
Why did we choose a square format?
Because initially we were thinking about square dessert plates; or paper tableware, or wall placques and graphics.
As we get interest from manufacturers of other products we can reformat the designs to work on their products.
Initially it helps to have one or two products in mind. That gives a focus for you to work with when creating.
Voilà here are the four Sunrise Roosters.
Bantam is a very colorful Bantam Rooster
The Morningside Rooster is a Wyandote.
Peck’s Rooster is a Dorky.
Sunny Day is a Black and White Bantam.
In addition to dessert plates we can see these as a set of wall graphics; trivets and coasters. As time goes by and we get feedback from our clients I am sure that we will be able to envision the Sunrise collection as numerous other products.
Our fabric client liked our roosters and asked Dennis to do a repeat pattern using the background and stamps, but not the type. Dennis is the one who can do the repeats on the computer. He worked closely with the design director at the company and together they came up with this final design for the repeat.
I could see this as a kitchen textile in dish towels, oven mits, potholders and apron.
Would love to hear what product ideas you have.
