CREATING A DURIAN PATTERN DESIGN IN MS WORD PART 1


MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 44

TITLE:   CREATING A DURIAN PATTERN DESIGN IN MS WORD  PART 1

TYPE:    GRAPHIC DESIGN

A pattern is a design made from repeated shapes and lines which are arranged in a regular structure. Nature has always been a popular source for ideas. I often use natural objects as inspiration for most of my works.  In this project, I have designed a pattern using the durian as the motif based on a grid that is suitable to decorate a fruit stall plastic shopping bag or a tablecloth. The pattern is repeated many times and arranged using the grid (squares) as a guide. The durian is a tropical fruit and it is very popular in South-East Asia. Even though it has a hard spiny shell and strong aroma, the fruit tastes great. Here are some pictures of the durian fruit.

 
 
 
 

The steps to create this pattern are as follows:

a)  Draw a round shape with the Curve line tool.

b)  Use the Freeform tool to draw some spines around the shape and then
     send it to the back.

c)  Use the Curve line tool to complete the other details such as the cavities
     and the pulp.

d)  Finally, render the drawing with colours with Shape Fill and Shape Outline.


 
This is just an example of a durian pattern design.
 

The tablecloth or shopping bag can be decorated with patterns of durian motif.
