“Do you have a passion for patterns? The importance & prevalence of both colour & pattern in the current design landscape is impossible to deny. Not only is pattern a headliner in the fashion category, but bold pattern is also taking center stage in home decor, paper goods, & accessories like no other time in recent history.

It’s time to jump onto the scene with ‘Color + Pattern’! Masterful pattern designer Khristian A. Howell will fill you with confidence & a fearless use of colour & an interest in all things pattern, so you can create your own beautiful art that can be printed on fabrics, paper, & transfers.

Fully illustrated with a large & varied range of pattern designs, ‘Color + Pattern’ highlights leaders in the industry, showcasing how pattern design comes to life when it finds its way onto perfectly paired products. Aside from sharing loads of gorgeous work, ‘Color + Pattern’ informs readers on the many different kinds of patterns & terminology, exploring found patterns, sharing processes of creating patterns, as well as showing ways to integrate pattern into many facets of real life with 50 exercises.

After all colour & pattern are meant to be fun, so design, colour & repeat!”
