Hello! Some of you may have found my site through my old blog, Lauren’s Creative, and if so - welcome! If you’ve just happened upon my site, even better - welcome to you too! I thought I should give a quick introduction…
My name is Lauren Brewer and in between school runs I am a surface pattern designer. Some of you (in fact a lot of you) may not even know what that is, so here’s a quick definition - a surface pattern designer creates patterns that can be applied to pretty much ANYTHING. A polka dot top - someone created those adorable polka dots that were then applied to fabric and then became a top. A floral rug, yep - someone drew those flowers, most likely imported them into Adobe Illustrator and then created a pattern which was turned into a rug. You get the idea. Up until about a year ago, I didn’t even know this was a career, but once I did, it felt like a light bulb going off. I fell into a Google wormhole and started taking classes on Skillshare. FINALLY - all of these things that I loved converged into what felt (and feels) like the perfect place for me. I have always been fascinated by color and pattern. Even in high school I would walk around fabric stores looking at fabric and scouring my mom’s home decor magazines. After taking a few classes on Skillshare, I found out about a very special course offered by Bonnie Christine - and it was such a gift. Her Surface Pattern Design Immersion Course - opened up a whole new world.
I have spent the last 8 months or so building patterns and collections. As of now, I have three complete collections each featuring 10 patterns in two separate color ways. Over the next few months, I will give little peeks into my design process for each of the collections. If you’d like a peek at a few of my patterns - check them out on my Patterns page. I am also in the process of finalizing my portfolio and will be sending it out into the world - talk about a scary but exciting process.
