The Patternbase: Tumblr, website, book

Tuesday, 24 July 2012

Founded by Kristi O’Meara May, The Patternbase website stemmed from the success of her 2011 personal Tumblr blog of the same name. Both outlets aim to provide inspiration for designers, featuring a broad range of photography, products, textiles and printed surfaces - as well as a wealth of coverage of the patterns found in nature.

The website is also set to publish its first book, PATTERNBASE: A Collection of Textile and Surface Design, after raising the funds on Kickstarter. The 250 page publication will highlight a range of work by current and emerging artists and designers.
