Summary "The importance and prevalence of both color and pattern in the current design landscape is impossible to deny. Not only is pattern a headliner in the fashion category, but also bold pattern is taking center stage in home d├ęcor, paper goods, and accessories like at no other time in recent history. ... Fully illustrated with a large and varied range of pattern designs, 'Color + Pattern' highlights leaders in the industry, showcasing how pattern design comes to life when it finds its way onto perfectly paired products. ... [Additionally,] the 50 exercises in 'Color + Pattern' take you through the process of gathering inspiration, exploring many different kinds of motifs, designing repeats, and developing a pattern collection."--Page 4 of cover.
