In searching for shading inspiration for my watch design project, I came across this intriguing design by Filipe SJ and João Costa on Behance. It caught my eye immediately with it’s neon colors, but as I looked further at it, I discovered the dimension was held in it’s shading as well as it’s subtle textures.
The process in which this piece was created started simple with an infinity loop. Slowly, as the shading is added and the gradients are layered on top, the dimension of the design becomes visible. Overall, the effectiveness of this design in carrying out it’s message of eternal creativity and to “never stop imagining” is made as the elements of gradients, texture and vibrant color are added into the piece.
