A Brief History of Butterfly Design: How and Why We Created Them
It’s one of those weirdly intimate moments in your life when you find yourself at a restaurant, ordering something and you see a butterfly and think, “wow, that’s pretty amazing!”
It’s a moment you’re trying to capture, and you have to figure out what to say.
The question of how to say it is a major one for designers, and a major part of why it’s a challenge.
We talked to several designers and artists to get their perspective on how designers, artists and writers have shaped our way of thinking about design and how to best describe our own work.
The questions you asked have been included in the gallery above, and they’re part of a larger conversation on design in America.
How did you start working on your designs?
It’s funny, I don’t think anyone had ever tried to design a flower before I did.
My dad was a carpenter and my mom worked at the local department store.
So I would go out on the street and work, but I was really shy.
I’d wear the same sweater every day, and I would get really into it, but then I’d just get discouraged.
Then I’d try to learn how to do it myself, but that just wasn’t something that interested me.
I started working on flower design by looking at the flowers I wanted to use, looking at people’s work and asking myself, “what can I do with this that isn’t just copying what people are doing?”
So I’d come up with ideas and ideas were never really good enough to actually make anything happen.
When I started making my own designs, I realized that it’s much easier to create something visually than to figure it out in terms of the way I was designing the flower, the color, the shape, the size.
But there was always one thing that I loved about the design of a flower that was always stuck in my mind, and that’s the look of it.
It’s so expressive and beautiful, so it just always stuck with me. 2.
How have your designs been received?
I started out just doing flowers and then gradually I got more into the butterfly design field.
I would like to think that it is the result of me taking a little time off and being a little more open to the process, and to actually having fun with it, that I’ve gotten so much more into it.
For me, it is about finding things that are beautiful and creating things that I love, and then I can actually share that with people, and hopefully they can enjoy it and feel that it resonates with them and feels authentic.
How do you think design should be viewed in the United States?
In the U.S., we don’t really see a lot of different designs, or at least not in a way that is necessarily interesting.
We tend to think of all the things that look like a flower, but we don.
It might not be that big of a deal if there’s a lot more variety, but it’s not that way.
So we have a very narrow focus when it comes to how we look at design.
We think about flowers, but the way we look, we don, and the way that we design, we have to take a step back and say, “OK, I know that we’re looking at a lot different things.
Let’s just focus on something that’s really cool, that we actually want to share with the world.”
That’s where design comes in.
That’s what we’re really looking for.
That can take a few years to develop.
But I would say it’s kind of a process that takes years.
What advice would you give to designers who are trying to figure their way into the design world?
I would really encourage people to do what they love.
I think that’s one thing I always say.
Do it for yourself, and don’t try to make money off it.
If you’re not going to spend money, then you’re going to have a harder time making something really beautiful.
So just do it because it’s really fun, and enjoy it.
I have been lucky enough to work with so many wonderful designers, designers who have helped me out in my career, and also some of the most amazing artists.
And I think a lot is really down to the people.
I know so many designers who were working on a flower and they had this great idea for a wedding flower and I’m thinking, “oh my God, this would be so fun, this flower is so awesome!”
I think they were like, “yeah, this is exactly what we were thinking about, and it’s something that we would love to share,” and I’ve been lucky to work on that.
But really, it’s all about the experience, and getting people to enjoy your work and to appreciate what you’re doing.
And that’s not easy.
