UPPERCASE magazine is calling for submissions to the second edition of the Surface Pattern Design Guide. Their first Surface Pattern Design Guide was a special section in issue 21, Spring/Summer 2014. The first edition Guide is now available for free download. The guide will feature established, and up and coming designers. Our own guild member Amy Peppler Adams was featured in the first edition, and this time it could be you!
"By being a part of the guide, your work will be exposed to an engaged and active readership of art and design buyers, potential clients, collaborators and consumers." -Janine Vangool
And for the first time UPPERCASE has partnered with Windham Fabrics in a New Designers Competition. The winning designer will have an opportunity to design a collection with Windham, and will have a feature in the magazine.
All the details are here. The submission form closes on September 1st, 2016.
And for a little inspiration, here is UPPERCASE publisher, editor and designer Janine Vangool with a few thoughts on what makes a good collection.
