How I Grew My Textile Design Business By 200x In 2 Years – Video

Here is a story of my textile design and repeat pattern business and what I learned in the process…

My name is Oksana. I am an artist, textile designer and a creative soul.

Up to this point I created more than 5000 vector repeat patterns and worked on more than 50 freelance surface pattern design projects.

I created my first pattern ever in 2010 and it has changed my life forever. Before this happened, I was creating vector illustrations approximately once per week for my microstock online galleries, where they could be licensed. One day in 2010 I told my husband Alex that I really liked repeat pattern designs and wanted to make them in vector, but the technical process of creating them was very time consuming and long. So Alex told me “Let’s figure it out together!” and we did! We put our heads together and came up with a system that made the technical side of creating repeat patterns very easy and fast for me. We improved the system over the years, but that day we made a simple pattern. Here it is. I was so excited to use it somehow that I made this illustration. One of my personal favorites till this day.

One year later, I have created over 1000 repeat patterns and borders and the revenue from my microstock business grew 80 times in one year. The following year we reached 200x the revenue of my original microstock business. You might say that it all started from that first pattern, but what I learned in 6 years since that day, is that it started from an idea and the fact that me and my husband came together and collaborated. That was one of the best, exciting times in our lives together.

I realized that I have a vision for patterns and artwork that speak to people and inspire them. But the power comes in collaboration with other amazing, creative people. This is what my customers have taught me so much through our common design projects.
If you have a product or a vision for a product that will impact people’s lives for better, I would be honored to collaborate with you and create unique, amazing artwork specifically for your products based on my creative vision and more that 8 years of experience in art and design. Please email me and let’s talk about your products and how we can make creative, meaningful magic happen together…
