Surface pattern design

Need a unique and custom-made pattern? I create custom patterns for various applications, such as fabric, wrapping paper, clothing, and packaging. Whether it’s a colorful floral pattern or a fun design for Christmas, I’m happy to brainstorm with you!

Custom surface pattern design

Give your product its own character with a custom surface pattern. I create vibrant and playful patterns that add a cheerful vibe to your product. Most of my patterns are created in vector, but I can also design a pattern with a more handcrafted look.

Prefer a collection of patterns that complement each other? I’m happy to help with that too.

  • Set your business apart from competitors
  • Unique and distinct branding for your brand or product line
  • A custom pattern helps your products stand out on shelves or online

Where do patterns make a difference?

  • Fabrics by the meter
  • Haberdashery
  • Wallpapers and interior prints
  • Clothing
  • Product packaging
  • Stationery, such as notebooks, pens, and other accessories
  • Wrapping paper
  • And much more!

Tamara helped us with the Winnipeg fabric collection. We have experienced the collaboration as very pleasant. Tamara adjusted the patterns and the color palette so that they were suitable for our screen printing machines. The collaboration was very good and we were completely satisfied with everything.

Tamara is super creative in what she does. It's great to collaborate with her. She often understands the assignment you outline right away and delivers promptly. She also always clearly indicates when she can have something made. Usually, she can complete a task in a short amount of time. I also appreciate that she can deliver the illustrations in a file format, allowing us to determine how we want to use them ourselves. This versatility enables us to deploy the illustrations across various aspects of our marketing. Her graphic expertise was also instrumental in a project for Speel-Inn, where she provided several examples for a visually graphic character.

How does it work?

  1. Get in touch via: or +31 6 284 923 16.
  2. We’ll schedule a meeting where we discuss your wishes. This can be done via Zoom or in person.
  3. After our meeting, I’ll prepare a quote. If you agree, I’ll ask for a deposit and start working on a mood board with a color palette for the pattern.
  4. Satisfied with the mood board? I’ll sketch all individual motifs of the pattern and also create a rough sketch of how the pattern repetition would look.
  5. Feedback? No problem! We’ll discuss the adjustments together.
  6. I’ll revise the sketches and send them to you. Completely satisfied? Then I’ll proceed with the pattern design.
  7. Do you want to make changes to the pattern? No problem! Usually, we agree on 1 round of adjustments per project.
  8. At the end of the project, you’ll receive the pattern files in the desired formats for your use.

How much does it cost?

The price of a custom pattern depends on many factors, such as:

  1. The number of motifs (1 repeating motif is cheaper than a pattern with many motifs)
  2. The style of the pattern: clean vector or with a handmade look
  3. Commercial or non-profit use
  4. The use of the patterns
  5. Other agreements we make (number of sketches, mood board, rounds of adjustments)
