Pattern Pulp Documents Patterns

Pattern Pulp is a blog created by New York-based designer Shayna Kulik. Her blog was started at the beginning of the year and covers pattern design across all media and forms. It's full of examples for inspiration, interviews with artists and designers, and commentary on what catches Kulik's eye.

To get the inside track on patterns, your intrepid Popgadget reporter asked Kulik for her current pattern obsession. She aptly said, "DIY patterns in reaction to the economy. Artists are being forced to make do with cheaper tools and the results are much more creative. Exciting examples of this can be found at Anthropologie's Fifth avenue store, where sliced bread floral patterns line the back wall and imperfect wallpaper is drawn out with chalk."

When asked what was her intention for the site, Kulik replied, "The other day, an old friend of mine said that he didn't realize he liked patterns so much until he started jumping through the posts. Over time, I'd love the general public to have that same reaction. For design professionals, Pattern Pulp's content can be tapped for relevant industry trends and used as a platform to communicate with each other."

Her reasons for starting Pattern Pulp seem both noble and achievable. On the most basic level, the site is enjoyable to read for designer and novice alike.
