Deathly Hallows are the last two movies in the Harry Potter series. The story revolves around a powerful symbol and the three objects it involves.
The symbol of the Deathly Hallows is a very simple one which, since the books and movies of Harry Potter, is used in all kinds of merchandize. From jewelry to table cloths. Since I specialize in patterns and I saw a nice example in one of the videos of the Wizardry Workshop, I decided to give it a try.
Need a refresher? Go to Amazon Prime Video and rent or buy the movies in HD.
The result turned out well, a dark grey with a light beige yellow Deathly Hallows symbol. I also tried to make the pattern a bit more random. With tiles of other designers I noticed that the tiling was often at a slight angle compared to the product on which is was placed. In Zazzle you can slant the tile quite easily, but with other providers that would not be the case. So I “baked” it right into the design in Inkscape (my go-to vector software).
I think this design will age well and as long as millions of people enjoy the Harry Potter franchise there will always be a market for these types of patterns. I did make some other Harry Potter related patterns, but that is for a later post.
As you probably noticed I’m a little bit of a modest fan of the Harry Potter Universe. It fascinates me and a couple of years ago I even tried to write a long post on the Wizarding World. One part that keeps me returning back to this magical world is the dedication of the HP community. It’s almost as is the want to “play the Wizarding World part” in real life rather then just a fun cosplay one weekend a year. Makes you wonder, right?
