Watercolor effects are at the top of my list. You noticed that all trends point to that direction. It was the distress effect a few years back, now it’s the messy, simple brush strokes of color that draws us like moths to a flame.
Chris Ballasiotes is the perfect embodiment of a skilled watercolor designer:
“After traveling to Florence, Italy for a study abroad trip, Chris Ballasiotes realized he wanted to do something with watercolor and design. The simplicity of watercolor and its free-flowing style was refreshing. Ballasiotes loved how fast you could move while working with watercolor, not having to erase or use perfect skinny pen lines.”
