Erik "Pattern" van der Veen is a graphic designer with a fascination for pattern design. His mission is is to give traditional patterns a contemporary facelift. “It’s morbid how people willingly decorate their walls with endangered animals and still unsoiled rainforests. I do understand the urge to look for beauty in nature. But these shapes can also be found closer to home, in our everyday environment. My patterns aren’t meant to cover up our messy surroundings but to celebrate them.”

Open for commissions and collaborations.
