Today's Design-A-Day SpoonChallenge prompt comes from Spoonflower friend and neighbor, Nadia Hassan. Nadia walks us through her process for creating vibrant geometric designs that are both angular and inviting, abstract and natural.
Last August we teamed up with Milk and Honey Shoes to find the perfect fabric for a pair of shoes by asking designers to create small-scale geometric prints. Today we are thrilled to announce the release of our Tastemaker Collection!
Congrats again to the top 4 designers! Head over to Milk and Honey to purchase your own pair. And tell us, where would you wear your perfect-print shoes?
Spoonflower teamed up with Milk & Honey to find the perfect fabric for a pair of shoes. You chose the top ten designs and Milk & Honey has selected four of the finalists to create a custom shoe collection. Congratulations to Grace, Virginia, Kiana, and Sharon. These designers will receive a pair of Milk & Honey shoes featuring their very own designs! Congratulations also to the rest of our finalists, you’ll get a kick out of our top designs.
