…The next pattern artist I want to share with you is Raul Villanueva.…And this is a good example of a brand pattern here.…And his specific client is called Reencarnacion.…And they take old furniture and they recycle…it and turn it into beautiful new furniture.…So, I thought this was just a great logo design in and of itself,…but he also, along with this identity, created a beautiful brand pattern.…And that's what I want to show you specifically here.…
And this shows how he took the brand element of the chair and he fleshed out…just a wonderful brand pattern that can now…be used on all the various print collateral pieces.…And in different ways to help market this business.…So this a good example of regardless of where you live or who your client is, if…you work on a brand identity project, how you…can work pattern design into that overall identity project.…And kind of expand the identity and give it a greater breadth of visual aesthetic.…
