ICYMI: Lots of New Patterns in the LibrariesKristin Crane
Fall has arrived, and it seems like everyone is putting the beach chairs away and getting back into the work groove. If it’s been a while since you last looked through our pattern libraries, you’re in for a treat. Over the past couple of months, we’ve added a lot of new patterns to both our licensable and proprietary libraries. Some additions were added as mini collections, while others were single designs. We currently have over 700 patterns to license and around 150 to buy.
Here is a look at some of the new patterns and collections.
A trip to the Museum of Printing in Haverhill, Massachusetts, inspired Moveable Type. It celebrates typography and typographers. Proceeds from a selection of patterns in this collection go directly to the museum to help them continue its mission of educating the public about printing and print history.
This collection grew out of a request we received from an interior designer to create a custom pattern for a microbrewery. They wanted an op art inspired design for upholstery in this restaurant. Kristen had so much fun working on this pattern; she created a series around the idea.
In the proprietary library, we’ve been mainly adding mini collections.
The Netherlands Collection
This group was inspired by a spring trip Kristen took to the Netherlands. The collection grew out of photos and sketches Kristen created on this trip, especially while touring a vast tulip garden.
The Natura Collection
Nature has been shown to have healing effects on our mental and physical health. When nature is unavailable, nature-inspired materials can help bring the outdoors in. Kristen designed this group of patterns with the healthcare market in mind, yet they are not limited to that market. These patterns work well in a variety of different spaces.
The proprietary library also has a fantastic group of linear patterns in the String Art Collection and colorful geometrics in the Swatch Collection. These patterns are all available for sale, not licensing. As a reminder, you need to register to view our proprietary library. Why? Because most of the companies who buy our proprietary designs want them to be exclusive. By registering, we can ensure you’re a real person with a real business before we approve your account.
As you dig back into work, we hope you’ll take the time to check out all our new patterns and find the perfect one to specify in your new project.
