#100daysofpattern – Day 3


Katherine Lenius | Minneapolis, Minnesota USA

Today we share the work of Katherine Lenius who took Modules 1-3 from March 2014 – January 2015 and Summer School 2014 and 2015.


  • Where are you now and what successes have you enjoyed along the way?

I started the MIID ABSPD Modules as a scholarship runner-up recipient and they’ve been very valuable to building my career as a surface pattern designer. In the time since I completed the ABSPD modules I’ve gotten my first licensing contract, opened my Etsy shop and started manufacturing my own products, and have developed a portfolio I’m proud to share. I’m also going to be included in the new Print & Pattern Nature book. I was lucky to meet a host of wonderful designers who have been very supportive in my journey. Embarking on this new path really wouldn’t have been possible without MIID.

Thank you & Happy Birthday!
