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 décor, 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.
