About Jitesh Patel
I work in a shared studio in Limehouse, London, with different industry professionals. It’s a Creative environment to work in, we generally share ideas and collaborate when the right situation presents itself.
I like to think I’m very design orientated. I like to work on new ideas and concepts and work them through on the computer. I enjoy drawing in my sketchbook and build up ideas, which are useful for projects. Its important for me to build a library of small design elements which I use in my illustrations.
I like to experiment with new styles and techniques. I personally think it’s important to keep your style of work evolving on a constant basis. I feel it’s a equations which requires a solution. I have an inquisitive personality and this is what drives the process.
I like to travel, which provides a great opportunity to tune into new environments and be inspired. I have often come away more cultured and mature as a designer from being in a foreign land.
I like to draw maps of the destinations I travel to, this involves drawing in my small Moleskine sketchbook, I draw the road layout of the destination and the well-known locations of the destination, this gives me a unique understating of each place I travel to.
My creations are a blend of delicate, intricate forms, and a good use of colour, composed together in a harmonizing way. It’s a matter of how I feel about the work I’m working on. If it feels right and im excited by it, I know I will be satisfied with the final piece.
I have developed a style over the years, which is constantly developing. Its clean and simple in its form. I like to create intricate, delicate work, which has a feminine touch to my illustrations. I trust in the composition and weight of my work. It’s a very thought through process and everything is placed coherently.
The lines are swooping and weaving through the design, which provide a sense of movement. These forms interact with elements in my illustration, which is very characteristic of my work.
I enjoy what I do as a designer, its something that gives me a sense of pride. I am very satisfied when ever I complete a piece of work and see it used in a commercial way
