A series of textile patterns designed for an Eco-friendly swim wear line focused on cleaning up our oceans. This collection highlights shark conservation. The client was looking for designs and patterns with the jaw of a shark, resulting in a number of approaches to determine the aesthetic fit. Concepts ranged from minimalist line drawings to colorful illustrated approaches to creating the jaw.
This collection highlights the threat climate change poses to the coral reef ecosystem. As Hülya engages with a community of ocean lovers and adventurers, I designed a collection of patterns to highlight beloved reef species that are in jeopardy of surviving coral bleaching. In designing this collection I hope to expand the awareness of the far reaching impacts of climate change.
