What is surface design?

Surface pattern design is often used printed onto fabric collections. But it can also be used for packaging, murals, book covers, websites, online presentations, notebook, kids wear, posters, products in home decor and so much more!

I often describe surface design and illustration as the perfect thing to use in order to make a product shine and stand out in the crowd. Illustration in particulair is good to use for story-telling and endless of other printed matters.
