Celebratory Bloghop 2013: Let´s Fly

We are celebrating the New Year with this bloghop called Let´s Fly… 

Most likely you are coming from Julie Hamilton´s website, a very creative Surface Pattern Designer who lives in British Columbia, Canada. and just have reached RistyDesign.

My name is Eli and am also a Surface Designer. I live in Donosti (Basque Country). I enjoy making fabrics, creating patterns, and painting. My designs are mostly used in  home furnishing, apparel, and paper product markets. I am available for freelancing and licensing opportunities. I also would love to show my work in fairs like Surtex & Indigo.


The theme of our bloghop is FLYING, with emphasis to “Emerald“, the 2013 Pantone color of the year.

My Three designs are inspired by birds, flying kites, and butterflies swirling in the sky.

This is the mood board I used to develop the following designs:



This bloghop starts at Gill Eggleston´s blog Pattern Addict and will run until January 13th. The curator is Rosie Martinez Dekker of Believe Creative Studio.

Please visit the beautiful site of Veronica Galbraith, a designer who lives in Cornwall, UK. Her website is a collection of what she considers to be some of the best bits from the amazing world of Surface Design.

•• Thank you for stopping by!
