Knowledge is Power, the Technique Behind the CollectionKristin Crane
When designing the patterns in The Cryptology Collection, Kristen used a unique technique she developed exclusively for this collection. Her initial inspiration was to pay homage to the women codebreakers whose work went unrecognized in their lifetime. What better way to do this, than with codes. Kristen wanted to create a collection of patterns, each containing a secret coded message. In the case of Knowledge is Power, that message is the name of the person whose work sparked the inspiration for the entire collection, Elizebeth Smith Friedman.
Kristen spelled Elizebeth’s name in code in each of the five designs. Beginning with those coded messages, she created shapes and ultimately patterns. Learn more about this technique, and the collection, in this video.
