Pattern People

It is safe to say that we have a great interest in color, pattern and texture. We actually get excited to see what colors next month's Muni passes are, and love mixing and matching patterns wherever possible. It's easy to see, then, why we love this Portland based design studio...

Pattern People is a two-woman "surface design studio" that creates prints for fashion, products, and interiors. The bold patterns are not for the faint of heart or anyone looking to stay minimalist with line, form, and color. The image above reminds us of the cover of The Beatles' Revolver album, with a hint of imagery from the Peter Max / Yellow Submarine years...

Their work has been manifested in murals like the one seen here in Portland Spaces Magazine, as well in artwork like the pieces above the jump. Claudia Brown and Jessie Whipple Vickery, the women behind Pattern People, recently curated a show, "Beneath the Surface" at Nemo Design in Portland. We love the design coming from this studio, as well as their blog highlighting trends in fashion and home design.
