If you’re a surface designer, then this is for you. I've created a guide that will level up your surface design game. This PDF is fully equiped with 365 prompts, fun themes, colour palettes AND a pitching schedule of when to pitch to art directors. Bonus, it also suggests the best time frame to upload your artwork to your POD shops.
This is THE MOST comprehensive guide I've ever put together and it will change how you work. Download it for FREE and you’ll get access to the PDF, as well as, the Excel sheet schedule which you can print and put up on your wall. The guide also shows you the best time of the year to upload to a POD platform like Spoonflower so that your future customers have time to purchase your fabric for their sewing projects in time for seasons like Halloween or Christmas. On top of that, there are also tips on how to create a great pattern and make it interesting.
Use this guide to up level your surface design game - you don’t have to only create in repeat patterns, you can also draw placement/ standalone prints to put on greeting cards or drink bottles. The sky's the limit. This is a self-paced creative journey so you don't have to create every day if life gets in the way. Pick and choose the month you want to make art based on what you can or can't commit.

I'm a surface pattern designer based in Melbourne, Australia. I've licensed with various companies all over the world such as Lucy & Yak (UK), RICE (Denmark), Urban Outfitters (USA), Nordstrom (USA), PBS Fabrics (USA), as well as, Spotlight (AU/ NZ), Picnic Folk (Australia), Monster Threads (Australia) and Annabel Trends (Australia). My proudest moment was when I'd designed an entire homeware collection for Target (Australia).
I love creating designs that adds joy to everyday life.
