Surface Design

Kelly Ventura is a freelance surface designer living in Michigan. Her work plays beautifully with different colors, shapes and textures. I've come to appreciate good hand drawn patterns when they are versatile in what can be done with them. Ventura's work could be used on stationary, fabrics for the home, clothing, etc. My mind is running with ideas and thought of creating my own patterns. I mean for someone that loves patterns why not give it a go. If anyone has suggestions on the best process to create patterns I'd love to hear. It's crazy to think that in all four years of attending art school I never took a surface design class. Thank you to Design Sponge for the introduction. TGIF!
