Freelance Surface & Pattern Designer
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
I have quite a wide varied tastes. I love to experiment with textures and create unusual shapes combining hand-drawing and digital techniques. I design prints and patterns that can be applied to many surfaces: apparel, home decor, packaging, stationery and even porcelain.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by what I see around me everyday. Also from pictures, and things that I see on internet, fashion, Pinterest, etc... I live part time in a big city and the other time at the beach. I love nature, and the textures from both environments. Walking everyday at least one hour allows me to discover those things that inspire me.
What do you love about being a designer?
I love to create beautiful patterns that can bring the customer a good vibration and make them feel happy, relax, confident, etc... Being a designer allows me to play with colors, textures, shapes and I can't imagine doing anything else for living. When I am designing, I forget about my surroundings, I keep exploring, and "playing" in order to get a result that works. It is a very rewarding job.
What else do you like us to know about you?
I love to be outdoors, not only hiking, walking or rollerblading (this is one of my passions), but also discovering new markets, coffee shops, museums, gardens, etc...
I love movies, theater, ballet and a good meal with friends and relatives.
