Design, With a Twist!
We are pleased to introduce you to the designer, Andrea Moran, who is the creative mind behind two of our newest prints! The Lemon & Lime “With a Twist” print in our Spring Line and the “Coral Fishy” print which is in our upcoming Summer Line.
We had to a chance to chat with Andrea about her designs for HIHO:
What was your design inspiration? Warm air, sandy feet and a feeling of relaxation
What can you share about the colors or color palate? With a Twist was inspired by the colors in a crisp summer cocktail. The Coral Fishy print colorway was inspired by the blues of the ocean and a touch of whimsy with the red fish - a nod to life by the water, and the perfect pattern for a subtle Memorial Day or July 4th cheer. I have a summer cottage at the beach and I just love anything coastal. I have been collecting sea glass from our beach for the last three years, and I am also inspired by those colors, especially when I find a blue or teal!
Is there anything else that you can share about your designs and the new prints? LOVED working with the HIHO team; they have a great sense of how a print would play as a pattern on an actual fabric.
Are you working on any future prints - can we get a sneak peek? I haven't started any new prints for HIHO, but I would love to. In the meantime, I have been painting pineapples for a friend with a house in the Bahamas...would be a lovely print for HIHO! I am also working on a MASSIVE wall sized canvas for a photography studio.
