Four Corners is an international collective of artists and surface pattern designers creating fresh, modern patterns for products and publications. Our work is available to license or buy outright and can be applied across markets - bolt fabrics, apparel, home decor, gift, stationery, quilting and more.
If you're looking to collaborate with talented and professional surface designers to help your products fly off the shelves, please get in touch. You can contact Four Corners with a general enquiry or visit an individual artist's page to browse a small selection of work and find links to their individual website and online portfolio.

We met in class on the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design e-courses and immediately recognised like-minds. Each of us has built successful, independent careers in the creative industries - giftware and packaging design, copywriting, illustration, art therapy, book design, project management, community arts, ceramics, stationery design, printmaking, advertising and graphic design - and we are now taking our talents into the world of surface pattern design. All of us have a commitment to creating work with care, quality and attention to detail. We decided to band together to inspire, encourage and support each other on the next stage of our creative journeys.
