FEATURED DESIGNER

Burcu Korkmazyürek

In 3 words describe your pattern design style?
Botanical, tropical, and exotic lines are observed in the patterns that I have designed, and I love creating vibrant designs.
What is your work & design process? 
In general, my designs are done in 3 or 4 workıng days, but sometimes it may take two weeks since I keep designing until a pattern satisfies me :)
Where do you find your design inspiration?
In my designs, I always try to reflect the intertwined harmony of nature that I observe during forest walks, so basically is just nature itself, as I mentioned before.  Besides, some fabric pieces that belong to the 80s and 90s also affect my artworks. I am impressed by nature itself while designing, so my inspiration is the night gardens that fascinate me, and their brilliant images as summer comes. 
What advice would you give to new designers?
My advice to young designers is that they should find their unique styles and reflect it in all their artwork pieces. Any style doesn't restrict them since any style they determine holds a mirror up to not only their past but also their future. In this way, they can create their artworks without confusion and have happy working hours. This is my advice, but it is important to remember that ideas and tastes are in a constant process of change :)
