DesignerMim's services include Surface Pattern Design, Illustration, and Graphic Design. How can DesignerMim help you?

Surface Pattern Design

I am an accomplished and skilled surface pattern designer. I read recently the art of creativity is being inspired by the seemingly mundane and creating something interesting and/or beautiful. I am constantly on the lookout for new inspiration so I am always taking photos!  

The beauty of surface pattern design is the same pattern can be used on a notebook, a lampshade, or a dress! A quick tweak to colours or the scale, and voilà! 

I design a wide variety of patterns suitable for a multitude of applications. Feel free to have a look through my portfolio to get a glimpse of some of my work. If you would like to see more of a specific style, please let me know.

If you are interested in licensing any of my designs please get in touch. 

If you would love a custom pattern designed I would love to hear from you (seriously, you’ll make my day!). 

Are you new to this whole briefing a designer gig then please have a look at my handy briefing tips 😉 However, if you’re well-seasoned and know exactly what you want, head on over to my briefing page and let’s get cracking!

Illustration

I love to create illustrations using a few photos to understand the essence of what or who I am capturing. Using my years of experience as a graphic designer, my illustration style is bold, colourful, with an attention to detail. 

Do you have some special holiday snaps you’d love to see captured in an illustration? Please send them to me with a short description and we’re off! 

Do you have a special memento that you would love to see illustrated? I would love to help you!

Would you like a custom print for a tee? Or would you like one of my existing designs on a tee? I can source locally made t-shirts and print either digitally or screen printing (depending on quantities ordered). All garments are made locally and support small businesses. By ordering through me, you are supporting at least three small businesses — how awesome is that?

Please have a look at my handy briefing tips to get an idea of what info I need from you. Then head on over to my briefing form to get the ball going!

Packaging & Label Design

 

I have over 13 years of designing packaging and labels. From boxsets for underwear to seasonal barcodes for fashion, I have designed them all. I have also designed bespoke labelling for a local micro brewery!  

 

I get excited when choosing fonts & colours, designing logos, and tweaking layouts — this is where I get to release my inner geek!

 

I encourage sustainable packaging solutions wherever possible, and am always keen to learn about new substrates or processes that evolve.

 

If you have a project in mind or would like to chat to me about ideas, give me a shout. I’m all ears ✌️

What are people saying?

I approached Miriam for me to consider using her prints for my dresses. I love having dresses which no one has. Miriam is more than 1800 kilometres away from me and email communication was how we connected. Due to my financial constraints I was unable to purchase Miriam's material but what I can say is:

- In less than 48 hours no less than 2 quotes were received from more various suppliers
- Further quotes were sourced
- Fabric options were provided
- Discounts for a bulk order were pre arranged with the supplier
- Patient
- Kind
- Bloody brilliant designs

One day I will have a DesignerMim print.

Freelance Visual Creative

Being a freelancer gives me the ability to be flexible with who I work with. Are you a start-up looking to setup your brand? Are you an established retailer in need of fresh prints for next season? Are you a market stall owner needing custom-designed patterns? The beauty of my experience is that I can assist so many people. And I would love to help you too.
