Taurus Design Collection- Nisha Designs

Nisha Designs: Our Taurus Collection was awarded the first prize🥇: We share this today even though this design was designed back in 1999 our designs are timeless, magickal, evergreen and hold a very special place in the universe through eternity.

Our theme was to design on Astrological signs for our final year of college. To create a room only with this sign. I got Taurus. And we chose to use the alchemical symbol of a Taurus for our presentation. Color given to us for the theme was rose quartz, pink shades as one of the crystals that belongs to taurus is Rose quartz. And we had to design 3 surface patterns that can be used for any application and how we have used these designs in what application was to be determined the winner. As they wanted to grade us on our skills to see how we implement a design to its best aesthetics and not just design to design as a commodity to make money but how do we see it as a value that we would bring onto this planet were our parameters. Yes back in the days thinking about our planet and what we bring to it was important (which we have lost in today’s world the thought) Testing our visualization skills, composition style of a design. And mind you that time all designs were hand painted into repeats, no computers were available. How to make a design useful. Very important aesthetic and visualizing skills required to understand the element, it’s presence and value it brings to ones space, to this planet is an important skill as textile artist/designer that knowledge which only comes from within. No one can teach you that. Would test our intuitive awareness as a designer too. The building block of a composition of a design determines how it works with planet earth. This is our first design. This pattern was used in a burn out sheer application. It was beautiful and gorgeous.

Kirie Artist Carves Playful Narratives Into Tree Leaves- Nisha Designs

“Aquarium of Leaves”

A 34-year old artist who goes by the name Lito has been living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) his entire life. Lito had been searching for an outlet where he could channel his above-normal levels of concentration and obsessiveness when he discovered the Japanese art of kirie (切り絵, literally ‘cut picture’). Earlier this year in January he began experimenting, not with paper, but with leaves. 

“My Father’s Dragon”

According to a recent interview, leaves turned out to be an ideal medium for Lito as their decomposing nature forced him to work quickly. Over time he got faster and his daily creations, which he began posting to social media, became more intricate. 

Following the standard kirie practice, each piece is always cut from a single leaf. But Lito always leaves traces of the leaf’s midrib, perhaps a sign of respect towards the leaf. Lito also always manages to imbue his creations with a playful narrative, one that is either inspired by film or books, or plucked from the artist’s own imagination. 

“Swimmy by Leo Lionni”
“Autumn Harvest Festival”
“Night sky, moon and bicycle” (a tribute to E.T.)
“Forest Librarian”
“Ghost Parade”

“Even graffiti is a fine art – As drawing time begins, the colorful crayons start to move in unison. What a wonderful world is being created today.”

“Lunch is coming soon.” (a tribute to Peter Rabit)

The compass of a world called Intuition- A synthesis of Design, Tarot and Gestalt Psychology. Created byMatteo di PascaleIntùiti- Nisha Designs

Intùiti is a pack of 78 cards that really helps you dive into your deepest creative process.

It was born as a project of the Polytechnic University of Milan and it represents a new way of living the subject of creativity, an issue that is often superficially tackled. Instead of forcing the user to find an idea, as it happens with some techniques like brainstorming or the mind map, Intùiti invites to sit calmly and to feel what one has to give, remembering that creating must be a source of joy and satisfaction. 

Intùiti proposes pointed suggestions, obtained from the analysis of classic tarots, that are a rich collection of archetypes. It has no divination purpose: each card is related to a thinking model that belongs to our culture, a powerful incentive that can put in motion creative and inspirational processes.

Intùiti is a synthesis of Design, Tarots, Numerology and Gestalt Psychology. It is both a serious game and a powerful tool that brings out the brightest side of creativity without employing rigid schemes.

Visual incentives and Tales

In the pack you will find two series of pictures: the primary intùitiand the secondary intùiti. The first ones are extensive inspirations; the second ones are more specific. To each picture corresponds an evocative tale that intensifies its sensation.

Each card represents a powerful incentive and is designed using Gestalt principles so you can recognize emotionally the related archetype.

You can play as you see fit. There are no main rules. It’s a tool for creative thinking based on visual and imaginary associations, so you just have to shuffle the deck, pick a card, and “let it speak”.

Give it a look: these cards are truly gorgeous!

Backstage

It took over one year of study and development and then other 6 months for enhancement. All the drawings are handmade and later digitalized for the industrial production.

Intùiti is not an answer!

People often want to find the solution to their “creative problems” in a tool or in method; they would like to have an equation, an algorithm able to solve the real issue of Creativity: to create something new. But using a “recipe” for writing a novel means to have produced something, not to have invented something.

It’s important to reiterate: Intùiti is not an algorithmic function that can “make people creative”, or a scientific method able to produce thousands of brilliant ideas. It’s an inspirational tool: it’s not an answer, but a continuos question.

Miracle- Nishante- Nisha Designs

Miracle: how you choose to look? If you see and believe in miracle is sure is miracle. If you see problems then sure will be problems. If you see fear then sure there will be fear. Think of all of your emotions as people. Would you allow the person name problem to enter your home? Would you allow the person named fear to come inside your home? I am hoping not. So why would you let any of these beings/ people/ energy live inside of you? Who do you want to allow in your home/ your sacred body is always your choice. There is always order/ miracle amidst of chaos. It’s how you choose to look at it, how you choose to believe it. This is the unknown right here today that we have come face to face. That you have to trust. Matter of fact you have no choice but to trust now isn’t it? Which is a Miracle in itself. Don’t you think? Nothing could get you to this place but self quarantine? Unknown will take care of you if you are choosing to do the right thing. Walking your truth. You have to believe in it first then you will see the miracle not the other way around. So many of you fear unknown? It’s funny isn’t it now that you have no where to go but have faith and trust in the unknown. No where to go but deal with your own self? Your own way of being while you are under quarantine? I am sure the thoughts inside of you don’t let you rest, relax be at peace isn’t it? Constant chatter? Moving? Don’t know what to do with yourself and how to be yourself? Hmm. Yes this is where self work, meditation comes in. Discipline comes in, spiritual studies come in. Working on yourself, meditation all these are tools given to us to show us how to live. But we chose to become so busy with stuff and life and being self centered and pointing fingers at others, that I am right and you are wrong and about money and racism that looking inside and taking responsibility of our own stuff was never a priority? That we took no time to stop, listen, breathe?🙈Now that you are quarantined who is truly going to help you here? There is no one outside of you to help you trust? Help you relax? Help you rest? Is there? It all comes from within and when you are so disconnected within you there is nothing that can help you but you. This virus does not see where you from? What your color, race, religion is? Miracle isn’t it? How Goddess Mother Nature knows how to stop the madness that was happening? Miracle a state and a way of living and being. It’s never too late to go within and learn to be one with yourself.

Yule Celebrations/ Winter Solstice- Nisha Designs- Ravenhawks Magazine

May the Magick of Yule fill your heart, home and family with celebrations of love, joy, peace and hope this holiday season. And we wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays🎄🎁- Nisha Desai

“The Winter Solstice or Yule It begins on “Mother Night” and ends twelve days later, on “Yule Night”, hence the “Twelve Days of Christmas” tradition.
Yule is a time of the Goddess of the Cold Darkness and the birth of the Divine Child, the reborn Sun God. It is a time of renewal and rebirth during Winter, and the turning of the Earth force tides.The Winter Solstice had been associated with the birth of a “Divine King” long before the rise of Christianity. Yule is about renewal, re-birth, returning hope and life.”- Ravenhawks Magazine

DELICARE – ANTI-MICROBIAL FURNISHING FABRICS- HEALTHCARE- NISHA DESIGNS

Frida DELICARE

The permanent bio-active functional fabrics by DELIUS offer freshness and hygienic cleanliness. Silver ions which are firmly embedded in the fibre stop the growth of bacteria both within and outside the fibre. They thus protect against infections like MRSA in hospitals. DELICARE fabrics also reduce the formation of odours caused by microbes.

Frequent washing does not reduce the function unlike with normal finishes. This is typical for DELIUS: the function is contained in the yarn and is not subsequently imposed by a finishing process; this also holds true for the flame retardancy.
