We kicked 2020 off with a cheerful design competition aimed at local young designers. ‘Twists & Turns’ designed by Deoné Rabé was selected by the public as one of the top three winning designs.
Deoné is a 23 year old Graphic Design student at North-West University in Potchefstroom. Her love for packaging design, illustrations and patterns motivates her to explore life through design. She loves drawing while listening to good music and will be a business owner one day.
Deoné designed the Twists & Turns blanket in her signature style.
“The ‘Twists and Turns’ idea is a signature style and it can be seen in most of my work I have created in the past. I love using ‘fluff’ (squiggly lines as an enhancement) when designing a pattern or illustration. For this specific pattern I wanted to stay true to myself as an illustrator and embrace my own unique style. I love using colour in my designs, therefore, I chose something fun and quirky to match the pattern style. For me, choosing colours is more about the mood and feeling. I wanted a bright, quirky and exciting mood to be portrayed through this design.
