The Pattern That Will Become Stratton

The Pattern That Will Become Stratton

The Pattern That Will Become Stratton

Now that some of my patterns are on merchandise on both Spoonflower and Redbubbton I am having to give thought to the way in which I create them.

This design was created in Adobe Illustrator as just that: a pattern. Now I am learning that the hard work is far from over since I now need to convert this into a pattern that can be made available for use on products. This is quite different from creating the pattern in the first place and is, if you like, an extra step.

But it’s a big step as I realised as soon as I began doing this. This design will become a pattern called Stratton but to get there will require a lot more work on my part and, if the other patterns are anything to go by, a certain amount of luck. But slowly I am starting to understand the process and put in place some ways to make the transition easier. Wish me luck and look out for the new pattern to appear here soon!

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
