Are you looking for beautiful designs to adorn your latest product?

You have put a lot of thought into designing and making your products. Good surface pattern design will help them shine.

My name is Shelley. Motif Manor is my surface pattern design studio created to help you make beautiful products for your customers.

How I Can Help You

My job as a freelance surface pattern designer is to work with you to create customised surface pattern designs, for your newest product or range. Our work together includes discussion of colour, style and structure as well as your design requirements.

I work in adaptable ways to suit the wide range of needs of product based businesses such as yours. The end product is the same though – customised patterns and designs ready to license, with the option to do so exclusively.

Purchase Designs from My Portfolio

Choose from pattern collections ready to be customised and licensed for your products.

Commission Custom Pattern Designs

Simple single designs though to complex layered pattern collections, and everything in between, custom designed for you to license.
