Midnight Garden by GUKUUKI

Patternbank were excited to see our Première Vision + Indigo – Autumn/Winter 2013/14 Print Trend Report being used as inspiration for the Find New Designers Print and Pattern Pin Hop June 2013 on Pinterest. A Pin Hop is a variation on the Blog Hop idea, but instead of having to trawl through lots of different Blogs you can see everything on one Pinterest board. Brilliant! Over 50 hand picked super talented surface pattern designers submitted original designs to the Pin Hop which started on Saturday June 15th. Check it out here.

The 4 chosen stories were Midnight Garden, Optical Day, Historical Adornment and Urban Metropolis. Each designer picked one theme and created a pattern and 2 – 6 coordinates.

We’ll certainly be keeping an eye on many of these designers for our forthcoming ‘Patternbank Studio’ where we’ll be selling print and pattern designs online. If you would like to be one of the first to appear & sell designs sign up now for the pre-launch application. Please email sell@patternbank.com with 4 – 6 sample designs.

I’m sure you’ll agree that there are some incredible designs by some very talented designers, we’ve picked a few of our favourites here, just click on the images to visit their Blog. We’re looking forward to the next Pin Hop. Thanks to Tina Olsson / FYLLAYTA for oganising the event.
