Hello, I’d like to invite you to an exciting surface pattern and Pinterest event happening this coming weekend, starting Saturday 15th June. Here’s the background:
The Pin hop story
This January a group of designers got together and created a pattern design blog hop, which turned out a great success! But looking through more than 50 separate designers blogs took ages!
So, after that weekend they started a serious discussion: How to keep the idea and creative input of a blog hop, but make it easier to pick and mix and find just your favorites? The answer was, of course, Pinterest!
Where else can the visitor get a quick overlook and pick out exactly want they want to see, without going through every link in a chain? And all designs are clickable, taking the visitor directly to the designers blog, to see the whole portfolio. On pinterest you can also make comments, share, like, and save to your own favorites. Perfect for all visual artists!
So here it is, the first ever Pattern design Pin hop!
On Saturday, June 15, close to 50 designers – including myself, will pin their interpretations of 4 different themes from an A/W 13-14 trend report by Patternbank to this unique board! To see the complete work by any designer that catches your eye, just click on the image!
This board is hosted by Find New Designers, a fast growing directory of independent professional print and pattern designers and another great opportunity to find new design talent. I’m proud to be included with such a talented bunch of creatives in this first online resource of its kind.
