A vibrant and eye grabbing piece, this really makes great use of the spunky colour palatte with the dark blue and inky background.

This would be perfect wallpapaer choice for an upbeat mood. The use of floral patterns is new and fresh compared to the artist's other works; and the clever use of the letters 't' 'y' 'p' and 'e' inside the original typography is catchy.

This has a lot of potential for being a fun and spunky wallpapaper. The few aspects that I personally feel need attention or changing are:

- the bottom part of the design. This is something that bothers me when I look at it. The highlighted chunks of the typography don't seem to sit well, there.

- the upper and lower part of the screen could instead have something else. Any other design, inspired and set against a fading/transitioning background colour that smoothens out gradient-wise. Maybe a touch of nature, critters or something along those lines?

thanks a lot :)

I don't use tutorials I'm afraid! I might release a tutorial at some point if I find the time

have made some comments/suggestions hope u find it helpful
icy-cool's avatar
ya i understand, thats y had asked tips (apart from a tutorial) on how u made this piece. :D
thanks for the comments. However, as the pieces i made were to be used for printing on what we call Flexes (banners printed on plastic cloth like media), I couldnt work with very bright colours. They dont come out as they appear on a computer screen. Though I have tried that out also..
mpk2's avatar
have you tried screen-printing? it's an alternative method for printing - might work on plastic cloths

I've sent you a note that you might find useful

good luck

I know what screen printing is. But its pretty diff from what we do..
We have a large scale annual fest. I made the designs for banners and we got them printed from a shop and got them put up throughout our campus to attract attention...
Thanks. I have been keeping touch with that site..
Cheers..
