8 colourful patterns to add a touch of spring to your designs

Spring's finally rolling in, but the odds are that you're not really feeling it thanks to the coronavirus lockdown. Outside the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing, but where's the fun in that when you're stuck inside?

Even if you can't get out and enjoy the sights and sounds of spring, you can always bring the season inside and add a spring touch to your designs. If you're up to speed with your watercolour techniques, you could paint your own brightly-coloured floral designs; for an easier time, though, we've found a selection of beautiful patterns that'll inject a bit of seasonal warmth into any project.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
