Print & Pattern 2
Patterns are everywhere. An antidote to gloomy economic times, we see them creeping over shop fronts, packaging design, clothes and home accessories. Who wants mass-produced minimalism when you can have patterns with personality? Print & Pattern 2 is the latest book from the cult Print & Pattern website that celebrates all aspects of printed surface pattern. Featuring cute, colourful and contemporary designs on textiles, cards, gift wrap, stationery, wallpaper, tableware, books, illustration, and anything, the book will be a must for anyone who loves printed patterns and motifs. Includes work from Marimekko, Designers Guild, Sanderson, Jonathan Adler, Angela Adams, Amy Butler, Rob Ryan and Dwell Studio.
About the author:
Marie Perkins started the Print & Pattern blog in her spare time whilst researching for mood boards in her job as a textile designer. Creating trend books for leading UK stores meant she needed images to demonstrate print trends, and after finding no dedicated blogs at that time decided to start one. The blog soon became a must-read for those in the industry. Marie is herself a successful surface designer working under the name Inkjet Designs. Her work has featured in numerous magazines and newspaper articles.
