What better way to spend the day than catching waves on your surf board?
The design…
The concept for this assignment was in my head for days. I knew that I wanted my surf design to include Hawaiian tiki's, surf boards, and sharks combined with some kind of type treatment. I  researched hawaiian patterns, Samoan tattoo design, Hawaiian art, flowers, patterns and even Ngatu (Tongan) art. After researching I drew basic outlines of surfboards, sharks, fish, paddles, a canoe and some tiki carvings on my iPad in my AdobeIdeas App. Then separately drew details like the hibiscus flower, leaf, the turtle and some traditional Ngatu symbols used in their art. The designs were opened in Photoshop where they were colored and layered to assemble the individual elements. When the images were complete I lined them all up to be the same height added the type 'Tiki Surf Club', then repeated the design in a 1/2 brick layout!
