Today Patternbank are featuring the work of  Luiza Cazal Print Studio in our ongoing series highlighting our fantastic designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. The studio is based in Sydney, Australia and joined Patternbank last year. We asked about what inspires their designs and a little but about how the patterns are produced, “we are inspired by how digital and traditional techniques and methods together create beautiful designs. We are proficient in both the digital space ( photoshop and illustrator ) As well as traditional painting and drawing, which is something are proud to offer. We like to let the trends Inspire our design but we never design to a trend, which we think keeps our work fresh. To stay on top of trends we like to go window shopping weekly just to see what is current”.

At first glance the work of photographer Andreas Zimmermann appears to depict urban landscapes created out of children’s toy building blocks. The photographs are in fact high-resolution photos of individual Lego which are then digitally assembled on a computer to produce these clever landscape patterns. Patternbank love the playful colour and composition where order sometimes clashes, tricking the eye into seeing something that is not quite what it first appears.
