Designing Patterns: Lotta Kühlhorn

Home Swede Home
Posted by Angie—01/2014

From whom should we learn how to design elegant patterns if not from a Swede? Gestalten proudly presents Lotta Kühlhorn’s practical handbook Designing Patterns, explaining the ins & outs of how to design patterns—for everything from wallpaper to tea services, and comes with a complete CD with templates for your experimentation.

With an impressive thoroughness, Kühlhorn shows us how to use everyday situations as a source of inspiration for creating stunning patterns and explores colors, forms, and the best ways to combine them. And you, sometimes without knowing it, have probably already come across Kühlhorn’s design.
