A patterned world

Ever since I made my first pattern a little over a year ago I started seeing the world differently. The fact that patterns are everywhere. I had been aware of patterns but not to the extent of where they are applied. Here is a list I started to get a bit of an overview over industries, products and surfaces that uses patterns. And when you start adding manufacturers, agencies and retailers for every category the list of potential companies to work with becomes quite long. There are opportunities...
