    Sketches for another Tealet seamless pattern.

    This one is for a tea farm in Japan, and depicts a sakura (cherry blossom) motif.

    this whole tealet project neeeeeeeds more love/attention. the amount of sweat you have poured into this project is mind blowing and it's clearly showing forth with the detail, research and overall aesthetic within each piece.

    @Colin Tierney I really appreciate that, bud. Yeah, I'm definitely logging in some hours on this project. But alas, I'm just not really popular on here and/or I'm just unlucky with my post timing.

    It's all good. Hopefully, it'll get some attention when I finally get to putting up the Behance case study.

  6. Another seamless pattern for Tealet's packaging, illustrated in the same roughened, hand-drawn style as the logo.

    For a full explanation of how this pattern will be used on the packaging, read this.

    This pattern is for a Japanese tea farm and their teas are harvested in Spring. I wanted it to be culturally significant, so I chose to illustrate a sakura (cherry blossom) motif. Sakura are deeply symbolic in Japanese culture, and are romanticized heavily in Japanese art.

    In Tealet's next shipment of four teas, three of them will be from this farm. Thus, there are three color schemes for this pattern, all drawing from a light pastel Spring-inspired color palette.

    The GIF depicts my process. Check the attachment for inspiration, sketches, and other views.
