About Maggie Lam

A career as an artist was not an option when growing up in a traditional Hong Kong household. But Maggie's passion for drawing was destined to shine.  

"I remember that from a very young age, I would spend hours drawing and creating" says Maggie. "But I thought that being an artist was impossible. Even when I won a scholarship in Fine Arts, I still didn't believe that the thing I loved doing was ever going to be a real part of my future".

What does a surface pattern designer do?

A surface pattern is a design that is either a single graphic or a repetitive pattern, to be printed on products for industries in apparel, home decor, stationery, craft and so much more. 

The patterns you find on fabrics, home d├ęcor, wallpaper and packaging of products are designed by surface designers.  A surface designer will create the initial design either by hand or digitally. I begin by hand using watercolour, gouache, ink or charcoal and then finalise my designs
digitally so they can used in a multitude of ways.

Once designed, the pattern is then printed onto a surface. It could be printed on anything from fabric, canvas, papers, wood, ceramic, or even plastic.
