Surface Pattern Collective: Dot & Flow Design

Dot & Flow Design are a collective of surface pattern designers and illustrators who will be exhibiting at the major trade show Surtex this May.

‘We are a quirky, creative and talented bunch. We thrive on creating fresh new surface designs for licensing and sale. Our collective portfolio is brimming with cute characters, lush lettering and an array of beautiful patterns. More than just a collective, we are a community. Our designers have access to key trend information, tutorials, templates and design challenges to ensure we continue to develop, grow and remain inspired to create stunning new art. We will be making a splash at our trade show debut, at Surtex this May, booth 244!’

Current Dot & Flow Members:
Natalie Williamson
Betsey Hodson

Egle Petrauskaite
Amy James
Sareka Smith and Adrienne Vita

As many of us in the design community are working towards exhibiting at Surtex or improving our portfolios, we’ve created a 10 week challenge: #FolioFocus to design a new mini collection a week.

Each week’s focus is one of the popular subject matters art directors are always on the look out for, such as Florals and Christmas art. We will also be sharing inspirational moodboards and colour palettes each week to get everyone’s creative juices flowing.
Designers are invited to join us in the challenge using the #FolioFocus tag on Instagram and Facebook.

We kick start #FolioFocus on Monday 1st February.
