The world of patterns is a jungle
I'd like to help you with some shortcuts
to make your pattern business easier.
As a pattern designer and creativepreneur I help clients finding patterns for their products and fellow pattern designers learn new skills by sharing mine here and by teaching illustration and pattern design over on Skillshare.
As a former marketing project manager I know exactly what an awesome client experience should be like and after leaving that world I also know how difficult it is to start up your own pattern design business from absolute zero.
I'm Bärbel, designer and creativepreneur behind Bear Bell Productions and I'm really excited that you found your way here! Let's get straight to the point what this place is all about:
- representing a business looking for prints for a product
- or a creative who wants to learn more about the world of patterns and markers,
You're in the right place!
I'm here to help you
There is a Swedish proverb saying to not see the forest because of all the trees and that's what the world of patterns can feel like. Both if you're looking for prints for your next collection or a single product - or want to learn how to make patterns and find information about running a design business.
I've been gathering bits and pieces here and there on my own pattern design journey, which I realize is a whole library of skills inside my head. And together with the experience as a business client myself from my decade of marketing in a big corporate company I wanted to create this place, where I can serve my patterns and knowledge about the pattern world to you - on a silver platter.
So you can go about your pattern tasks in one easy stride - instead of hopping from stone to stone.
1. What's surface pattern design?
In a few words: graphic elements arranged in a way that it can be indefinitely repeated and applied to a surface, material or product.
Take a peek in the pattern lookbook where you can see how some of my patterns look on real products.
