The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design

Make it in Design is the home of all you need for a successful career in surface pattern design


Gain inspiration, get involved, build your portfolio and have fun. Draw, doodle, paint, sketch, post a picture … whatever!


Each week for 15 weeks we posted a fabulous new design theme and posted daily inspirations on our blog to create #100daysofpattern.

Inspirations came from Make it in Design’s co-founder and world-class surface pattern designer Rachael Taylor, our fantastic students, inspiring contributors and other amazing industry professionals for 100 days straight!

Head to the Make it in Design blog and enter 100 days of pattern into the search box or you can search for pattern ideas and inspirations using the hashtags #makeitindesign and #100daysofpattern.

Why not challenge yourself to draw a beautiful pattern every day for 100 days to boost your portfolio, draw things you’ve never tried before and ensure you’re bringing creativity into your life, everyday!
