The Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers

On 10, Jan 2013 | No Comments | In ABSPD, business, designer, inspiration, my work | By Tina

Hi everyone. I’ve had such a lovely week’s holiday with my family and spending time playing with my niece and (brand new!) nephew. I will tell you all about them in a few days but for now I would like to tell you a little bit of what I’ve been up to.

I am involved with a fantastic group of Surface Pattern Designers, most of whom took part in the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design run by Rachael Taylor and Beth Nicholls.

One of the members, Gill Eggleston of Pattern Addict, organised an EFUTO Envelope Project a number of weeks ago. (You can read my post about the EFUTO project here). She painstakingly compiled our EFUTO envelopes into a database entitled The Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers.

It’s a fantastic idea and a one-stop shop for finding new design talent. Here is my entry, which can be found on page 51.

Free Calendar Download!

On 01, Jan 2013 | No Comments | In ABSPD, design, designer, inspiration, my work, seasonal, trends | By Tina

Hi everyone. I am very excited to be part of a collaboration with 11 other surface pattern designers to create a Free Calendar. The project was run by Majo of MuyMajoBV Designs and we each designed a month. Our unifying element was Pantone’s Spring 2013 Colour Palette.

Today you can download the month of January, designed by Majo herself.

I was given the month of November and my inspiration for the design was Movember and all the quirky moustaches that people have.

Feel free to share with your friends.

Thank you Majo for including me in this fantastic collaboration

Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design

On 10, Oct 2012 | No Comments | In ABSPD, career | By Tina

Hi everyone. I am just finishing up Module 3 of the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design e-course.  I still have lots of exercises to do, but the course itself is finished. I did Module 1 and 2 earlier on in the year and I really can’t recommend this course enough.

I have grown in my abilities as a designer and gained confidence in myself. I feel like I can take on the world of Surface Pattern, whereas before I really didn’t know what to do.

The information gained is priceless, the student support network is crucial. I feel like this is only the beginning of a beautiful new world and I want to share it with everyone. Thank you Rachael and Beth for such an amazing course! ♡
