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. It’s 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 an equation 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 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 I’m 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. It’s 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 very thought through the process and everything is placed coherently.
The lines are swooping and weaving through the design, which provides 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 whenever I complete a piece of work and see it used in a commercial way
