After a start in bespoke men’s tailoring, followed by ten years in the retail sector and a three year bachelor degree at Beckmans College of Design, Tina launched her own men’s street wear label in 2002, initiated a designers co-op and created a popular workshop/design store in central Stockholm. Now, 10 years later, the time has come to concentrate on the one true obsession, print design!
My style is contemporary, expressive and bold. Very often in a colourful and abstract combination of many subtle layers.
I live in Stockholm , Sweden, but spend much of my time outside Gothenburg, by the sea on the west coast.
The Pin hop story
This January a group of designers got together and created a pattern design blog hop, which turned out a great success! But looking through more than 50 separate designers blogs took ages!
So, after that weekend they started a serious discussion: How to keep the idea and creative input of a blog hop, but make it easier to pick and mix and find just your favorites? The answer was, of course, Pinterest!
Where else can the visitor get a quick overlook and pick out exactly want they want to see, without going through every link in a chain? And all designs are clickable, taking the visitor directly to the designers blog, to see the whole portfolio. On pinterest you can also make comments, share, like, and save to your own favorites. Perfect for all visual artists!
So here it is, the first ever Pattern design Pin hop!
On saturday, June 15, close to 50 designers åonned their best interpretations of 4 different themes from an A/W 13-14 brief (by Patternbank.com) to this unique board! To see the complete work by any designer that catches your eye, just click on the image!
This board is hosted by Find New Designers, a fast growing directory of independent professional print and pattern designers, found on the website http://findnewdesigners.com/ (another great opportunity to find talented pattern designers)
This pin hop is organized by me, Tina Olsson / FYLLAYTA
Maybe you wish to join the next hop? Follow me on Linkedin, it will be announced there.
