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!

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.

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! ♡
