Nadia Hassan is a surface pattern designer living and working in
Greensboro, NC. She has an undeniable passion for patterns and applying prints
to anything that will sit stillófrom fabric and phone cases, to entire
city streets! Her designs are always evolving, but usually include bold
graphics, clean lines, cheerful colors and a healthy dose of playfulness. She
enjoys experimenting with abstraction, interlocking shapes and the delicate
balance between positive and negative space. A self-proclaimed color
enthusiast, she uses pattern design to celebrate and explore color. She draws
inspiration from just about anywhere, including the many beautiful and bizarre
forms found in nature, the incredible legacy of mid-century design and the
moments in everyday life where the mundane meets the serendipitous. For her,
the process is as much about play as work; itís an exciting investigation of
ideas, colors, shapes, textures and scale. Each day she looks forward to
discovering where the limitless possibilities will lead.
Nadia lives with her partner, his two children and her cat, Toby, in a white house with a mint green door. She would have painted it orange (her favorite color), but didnít want it to clash with the neighborís red one.
