Hello from my desk this week. This week has been about sharing for me. I was contacted by a graphic student this week asking help breaking into the Surface Pattern industry and was introduced through a fellow Pattern Observer course student. It was a surprise to be asked and I felt huge responsibility dispensing the right advice I hope what I gave was useful I wish this student good luck. I remembered when I left collage any advice other designers where willing to give was so greatly appreciated. Any way this week it sparked the idea to share some useful resources I found this year on my blog.
