“Pattern can be hugely influential and give eye-catching standout, but it can also be used subtly to creatively link elements, be it on the page, on screen or in an interior. For us, the essential element is appropriateness — consider the application, the audience, the intention and the desired effect. Where possible, we try not to overwhelm (unless that’s your brief) and to create a sense of balance.”
