Jacob Barrick

Graphic designer for branding, marketing, & surface.

Surface Design

Patterns and surfaces for plush toys, clothing, interiors, and prints. I began learning pattern design for fabric as a side-project to my MFA studies. I had just learned to sew and quickly became dissatisfied with how dated and middle-of-the-road commercial fabrics looked. My early inspiration drew from Ettore Sottsas and Nathalie du Pasquier. More recently, my process involves a mix of cut paper, sharpie markers, and digital editing.
