I’m a surface/pattern designer. What is that? Here’s my definition:
Surface/Pattern design is artwork made by a designer that is applied to various products (packaging, textiles, apparel, table top, gift ware, stationary, etc.). The designer enhances the visual appeal, communicate messages, or feelings, and drive sales of consumer products.
I’m a designer working in Cincinnati, OH, however this business is truly global and home base does not limit with whom I can work.
I studied graphic design at the University of Cincinnati college of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning (DAAP). My passion for pattern design started with my love of fabrics, sewing, and quilting. I have considered myself an artist from my earliest memories. My love of art and sewing naturally transitioned into this niche field of design.
Although I have a diverse background in graphic design, several years ago I decided to focus solely on surface/pattern design. That was the beginning of Eileen Fleming Pattern Design, LLC.
Eileen Fleming Pattern Design, LLC is the B2B side of my business. EFPD has a large catalog of artwork ready to sell or license of manufacturers, fashion houses, etc. I am also always happy to create original artwork to a client’s creative brief.
The summer of 2019 I am launching the direct-to-consumer (retail) division of my business so I can bring finished product lines directly to the shoppers themselves, both online and in person.
I would love nothing more than to communicate with you. Feel free to contact me here, or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
