Tippi Ocampo fashion design book

Plus63 Design Group tapped me to create a t-shirt design for Uniqlo Philippines’ UTMeArtPh x Fiesta Collection, along with fellow graphic designer-illustrators Frances Alvarez and Karl Adrian Aguro / Uncurated Studio. The Philippine festival assigned to me was Baguio’s flower festival, “Panagbenga.” I chose to incorporate native flowers that grow in Luzon, such as Ilang-ilang, Banaba, and Narra, and kept exotic species like sunflowers (which are comonly used in the festival) as adornments on the dancing couple.

As someone who wears Uniqlo clothing on the regular, working on this design was a complete thrill. Many thanks to Dan Matutina and Dang Sering of Plus63 for the trust.

The Department of Trade and Industry tasked arts & crafts store Common Room to create bright and youthful Filipino souvenirs  for their souvenir store Go Lokal. The theme was “The Philippines through your eyes” and I was among the 16 artists tapped for the project. 

My design is an homage to a beloved Filipino folk song called “Bahay Kubo” (“Nipa Hut”) which refers to a rural house built of palm leaves & bamboo poles. The song is known for lyrics that playfully enumerate a variety of plants & produce surrounding a family’s tiny hut. I believe this to be reflective of how the Filipino, with what little resources we may have as a developing nation, can stay afloat while making the most of whatever is available to us.

Design-wise I thought it would be a visual treat to show a colorful, bountiful veggie feast surrounding the humble quarters that a typical rural Filipino family calls home. I also thought that application of the artwork on everyday stationery such as postcards and notebooks would allow the consumer to celebrate Filpino culture any and every time.

Filed! is a brand of modern school and office supplies and they commissioned me to design a pattern for their Limited Edition Pen Capsule Embroidery Collection. The theme was Philippine Flora and Fauna so I came up with a vector illustration featuring the native Philippine Trogon amongst locally common flowers such as kalachuchi, sampaguita, and a waxflower. The design was digitally embroidered on two backgrounds, pink and black.
