A Fabric Story

This section starts to tell us a fun fabric story that uses the MadMotif print pattern on all of the sheet metal surfaces on Dave's antique FL Harley Davidson motorcycle. A 'Fabric Story' uses a central theme to identify with a certain market segment, in this case intending to convey an attitude of courage and adventure.

Tech Stuff

Color diagrams are a part of the technical information, (AKA a Tech Pack) that designers will need to provide to the fabric mills in order to have their fabrics milled or manufactured. Additional colorways will require charts for each colorway. Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Pointcarré are the programs used to create this and many of my other surface/textile designs.
