Hello and welcome to my website. I’m Christine Gibson, a Surface Pattern Designer, living in Northamptonshire.
I have always had a passion for creating things. For most of my career I worked in office administration, however, I longed to work in the creative industry. In 2007 I enrolled on an Interior Design course and four years later, graduated with an Honours degree.
During my time at University, I spent time experimenting with colour, patterns and graphics. I began exploring creative professions including arts and crafts, screen printing and pattern design. It’s safe to say I fell in love with pattern design.
Once I have an idea I create visual mood boards exploring colour combinations, trends and design techniques. Outline sketching and concept ideas are hand drawn using motifs and shapes. Painting techniques are explored to enhance detailing and texture. The drawings are then manipulated into digital images, creating truely unique patterns.
I draw inspiration from the natural world, creating designs focusing on organic shapes, floral patterns, textures and geometric designs. A selection of my work can be found on my ‘Collections’ page.
In addition to creating designs for my own products, I am also available for Freelance projects. If you wish to Licence any of my designs then please get in touch. You can reach me using the contact form found on my ‘Contact’ page.
