Surface Pattern Designs & Playful Products by Shelley Schmidt
My Designs are . . . Quirky. Bold. Bright. Fresh. Happy. Contemporary. Playful!
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Shelley Schmidt and I am a freelance textile and surface pattern designer that specializes in creating cheerful, contemporary surface pattern designs and illustrations for the children's, home decor, and gift markets. I love to create playful artwork that brings a smile to people's faces and I delight in working with clients to turn their design vision into reality! In addition to my design expertise, my background in product development, apparel design, merchandising, marketing, and entrepreneurship has made me a valuable asset to many businesses - both large and small. I create custom artwork and designs for clients on a commission basis and I also license and sell my artwork and surface pattern designs to companies for use on their products.
In addition to working on a freelance basis for other companies, I also design and create various items for my own small-batch product line - each of which features my own colorful artwork and textile designs. I sew each of the fabric items in my collection myself and I strive to use natural, eco-friendly, and USA-made materials whenever possible. My playfully designed products can be purchased in various independent boutiques throughout Georgia, as well as in my own website shop and Etsy shop. I also sell my products at numerous Atlanta-area sales events and festivals throughout the year! Currently, my small-batch product line includes organic cotton baby items, linen/cotton tea towels, throw pillows, stickers, magnets, wrapping paper, gift tags, greeting cards, stationery, and art prints.
