I found out some very exciting news last week - I have been accepted into the Uppercase Surface Pattern Design Guide!
|Cover design by one of my fellow MATS classmates, Jan Avellana|
My work was selected from almost 300 entrants and 2000+ designs - wow! Since surface pattern design is something I've been focusing on this year, this news couldn't happen at a better time. The guide will be a part of issue #21 of Uppercase Magazine, and 1500 copies will be sent to Surtex in May. What an amazing honor!
Here's a fun video all about the Uppercase Surface Pattern Design Guide and 10 Tips for How to Stand Out in Surface Pattern Design:
I know I've gushed about how fabulous Uppercase Magazine is (remember when I made it into Work/Life 3 last Fall?), but just in case you are unfamiliar with the publication, YOU NEED TO CHECK IT OUT. Seriously. I adore this magazine. Each issue is so chocked full of artsy goodness it is impossible to put down. If you're interested (and you SHOULD be!), use the discount code USPDG2014 and receive $15 dollars off your subscription! What are you waiting for? Get it here.
I hope you are having a glorious Monday - I know I am!
