Unique Pattern Designs by Colin Walton

Pattern Designs by Colin Walton

This website is a showcase for my pattern designs. I hope you find it fun and inspiring. I would like to work with designers and manufacturers to produce a range of commercial products, such as wallpaper, furnishing and fashion fabrics as well as a complete stationery range including wrapping paper and greeting cards.

Unique Designs

There are examples taken from my large catalogue of unique pattern designs. They are often based on everyday items, or simple hand-printing techniques. They can all be reproduced in different colours, to create bespoke pattern designs for your product or project.

Pattern Development

Using Photoshop and Illustrator I create complex multilayered documents. Each of my designs has a coding system which can be used to recreate the same design and colourway. I have given details of the stages of each pattern’s development and reasons for each design choice.

Placing The Pattern In A Location

To give context I have combined a selection of finished designs with a straight-on shot of the chair used in my design for mid century modern chairs. Adding a fake carpet and simple skirting board. For every image I altered the colour of the real chair to complement the surface patterns. For each design I also created a simple version that was just the pattern, to show how the design could be used for fabric, lampshades, and other surfaces.

Not Just Wallpaper

The patterns here are all shown as wallpaper, but most of them would work as wrapping paper, gift wrap, furnishing and fashion fabrics, stationery and household items. Many of the surface pattern designs would also work well as on a large scale such as in shopping centres, airports and public spaces.

Fabric for Patchwork Quilters

I am currently having a selection of my designs printed by Spoonflower for patchwork quilters. For more information or samples please contact me.

Working Together

Please contact me to see additional designs, receive a high resolution file, or to discuss ideas for your unique project. I am also happy to consider licensing designs.
