I really like the texture that has been incorporated into these designs as I think it gives a lift on the flat appearance of the shapes. The use of linear shapes and block colour works well and how the direction of the lines guides your eye around the composition is a successful aspect.
Geometrical shapes have been used here to create a three dimensional appearance and the colour has assisted this by giving the form light and shade. Although I think this is a clever technique I don't think it is something I will be continuing with in my further designs.
These compact patterns have a lot of impact, which is something I would want to recreate with my bottles to help give them shelf appeal and stand out from the competition. I think they work so well because of the simplicity, limited detail and bright, sometimes contrasting colour.
Limited colour has also been used on these images, which has cemented my idea that it is a trick to help geometric prints to success aesthetically. Another aspect I find interesting is how the shapes have been overlaid which I feel adds to the composition. Especially when the opacity has been lowered and the shapes from underneath show through, altering the colour.

I'm not such a big fan of this geometric style as I think it looks messy and hectic, I think this has something to do with the varying stroke width.
These patterns have taken a different approach to the previous designs and vary from each other whilst still retaining similarities. I would like this to be the case with my own range.
