Surface Pattern Design
My definition is that Surface Pattern Design is the art of creating repeating patterns destined for a variety of surfaces. For instance home textiles, wallpaper, clothing, stationery, floor coverings. Surface Pattern Design can be used for anything with a surface that you would like to decorate and make a little more visually appealing. A little mind-blowing, right? I love the idea that a pattern I design can be used for a child’s bedding, a wallpaper, a lampshade, and even their favourite crockery!
If you’d like to learn more about Surface Pattern Design, you’re welcome to contact me with any questions and I’ll try my best to answer you. Have a look at my recent work to see the variety of patterns I am currently creating.
I create illustrations based on a combinations of photos, what you tell me, and my imagination. I love trying to capture the essence of my subject matter, I need you to tell me why you want it illustrated and what it means to you.
If you have any favourite colours please let me know — my illustrations are sometimes fairly close to the original colours but I do enjoy playing around with colours and compositions to create original pieces. You need to tell me what you want.
If the illustration lends itself to having a pattern (in the background, inside an object etc) let me know what you’re into and I’ll try to incorporate it!
I can help you design packaging, labelling and creating a logo. I love getting stuck into the technicalities of graphic design — from choosing the fonts, to palette, to materials used. When I started out as a designer, my speciality was graphics. That was many moons ago and I’ve come a long was since then! With so many years of experience creating graphic design solutions, I am confident I will be able to assist you.
