10 Designers Creating Styled Patterns With Unlikely Objects

So there are patterns, and then there are patterns. Sure, you can finish the usual thing, which is to create a row of fancy chevrons, a plaid or something like that. And understand that while there’s nothing inaccurate with that, if you want to stand out, you’ve got to finish something different. Really different.

What finish I mean? amusing you should query, narrative device, because I fill several examples of exactly this. Like, insist, 10 of them. Here you proceed.

fancy + Color

I’ll give you a heavy hitter lawful off the bat with fancy + Color. They acquire patterns out of photographs. That’s lawful, they capture the time to lay out real objects — seashells and fruits, for example — into a pleasing pattern. finish you fill any conception how long that would capture to finish?

Point being, this is no easy gig to just whip up in an afternoon. And what’s even cooler? You can just buy them yourself lawful here on Creative Market. Here’s proof:

Varvara Gorbash

I can’t express how much I fancy one particular piece of work by Varvara Gorbash. OK, I suppose I can figure out a way to acquire that happen, because that is my job. So here goes.

Pastel goth. Soak that in for a minute. It’s like combining Lisa Frank and emo Tobey Maguire from Spider-Man 3 (minus the horrible acting). I fancy everything about it, including the name. And considering that you can net it in a pattern? handsome. incredible. It’s so frosty that I’m envious.

Don’t believe me? Check it out:

Wing’s Art Studio

I fancy the ’80s, but probably for different reasons than you might. After all, I lived through them. I remember going to see The Empire Strikes Back with my dad when I was a kid, and wearing the brightest clothes possible on a regular basis. So it makes sense that I would fancy patterns like these done by Wing’s Art Studio.

See, they net the aesthetic. They’re not just faking it for the views, they’re creating art like it was out of the era, and it’s all repeatable. I want to buy some of their stuff even though I still fill no conception when I’ll consume it.


Two paragraphs ago I referenced the holy trilogy, so you know that I fancy space. And when you can capture space and acquire it into a pattern that’s seamless and tileable, well, just capture my money.

It all makes sense, too. Nebulas, star fields, and other frosty space-related bits are natural fits for patterns. And they’re all super affordable? Ugh. I’m going to proceed broke by the time this article is done.

Melissa Held

While Melissa has a lot of different patterns in her shop, one particular collection stands out: Metallic Geometrics. Now maybe it’s because I fill issues trying to reproduce metallic coloring with any decent results, or it could be just because I fancy gold. But either way, this entire collection of goodies is just perfect.

And then she hits me with the Christmas patterns. I mean, a pattern that looks like a holiday sweater? Sold. capture all of my money. I fancy this stuff.

Gaynor Carradice Designs

We’ve talked about a lot of unique objects and collections so far, and we’re on a roll. But one thing that hasn’t entered the mix yet is anything with a heartbeat. And now, here it is: Patterns with Pugs.

study, the only way this could net any better is if it was with Weiner dogs. I fancy dogs of all forms though, so if it’s gonna be something, at least it’s a breed as adorable as a pug. fancy this.

Bella fancy Letters

I fill a fancy/dislike relationship with donuts: I dislike that I fancy them. Krispy Kremes just wreck my digestive tract, and while I can finish Dunkin Donuts just fine, I can’t finish any of their frosted ones or else I’m in the same boat with the Krispy Kremes. But you know what? I’ll eat them all anyway, because I’m a mess of a man that just wants to shovel dough that’s been fried and glazed into my mouth repeatedly.

OK, so where was I? lawful. Patterns. Bella fancy Letters makes this pattern with donuts, and that’s a level of brilliant that I can’t comprehend without growing another lobe on my brain. I hope you agree (about the donuts, not the brain thing).

Digital Art Creations

Plaid has been done before. Both digitally and in real life, we see plaid patterns all over the dwelling. But in my many years floating around, I’ve never once seen neon plaid. And even if it has existed, I’ve never been able to buy it in a pattern before. So you know what? This is unusual to me, and I consider it’s frosty as all net out. So there.


I don’t know how much you’ve played around with patterns, but they can be hard to create. When you throw watercolor into the mix, you’ve got a whole other layer of complex that I don’t even want to consider about. This pattern pack by Tasiania is done with indigo tones and has lots of details. Oh, and they’re in vector and raster formats, so you can net super flexible with them. Creativity like this makes me a exiguous bit envious.


Living in Phoenix means I see cacti all the time. We fill roads named after them. I went to a high school named after one of them. Heck, I’ve even eaten and drank cactus before, so they’re a portion of me in a very literal sense. So when I find a pattern named, “Cactus on Acid,” you know I’m going to check that stuff out. And I did. And it’s glorious. And I need to acquire it mine.
