FEATURED DESIGNER

Andy

I'm a passionate surface designer. 10 + years creating prints, jacquards, and fabrics for the textile industry. All designs are seamless, double check and ready to print. A mix of my identity as an artist along with what is in commercial trends for fashion, fitness, and beachwear.

In 3 words describe your pattern design style?
Timeless, digital, fluid.
What is your work & design process? 
I like to mix handpainted technics with digital interactions. For most of my prints, I start with some handpainted draw, and then I use Photoshop to add effects, adjust colors, and give movement to the print.
For the last step, I test and create other colorways of the same print.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
In the nature colors, like sunsets, the sea, and the sand. I think the color pallets we can find in nature will always be harmonic and timeless. I also like to look for vintage inspirations like shapes and colors to create prints, especially focusing on commercial and catwalk trends.
What advice would you give to new designers?
Find your style, train your vision to see the beauty in the little things, and learn to translate them into prints.
