READY TO USE PATTERNS
Gloria Franco. Surface pattern designer and founder of G&Silk
A little bit about me,
for as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about color. I truly believe it can bring joy to daily life. Art in all forms has always interested me, this is why I dropped medical school to study theater and fashion design in Paris, where I lived for more than a decade. For several years, I forgot my creative side and had jobs related to marketing, export and translation. Currently based in Almeria, Spain,where I was born but had never lived before, in 2016,
I went back to my roots and adapted the design skills I got from my fashion degree, to the new technologies.
In 2019 I opened this design Studio.
Here you can purchase Illustrator or Photoshop files , at the Online Store with Ready to Use Patterns. Also order customized ones for your brand or products.
In 2020 I created an instagram account: fandeestampados where I supported and showcased for free the work of other artists during the Pandemic. That was a turning point for me, to get connected with the International Textile Community. In less than a year I got way more than 12000 genuine followers, but the account got stolen and the community lost. From that moment, I changed my views on Social media but not on how I see design, the value of artwork and the respect for everyone involved in the creation of a product.
In March 2021, I launched G&Silk, my Luxury scarves brand, handmade in Spain, where I can join my creativity with my marketing experience and the love for patterns. Keeping the spirit of fandeestampados alive and making the artist support real, not only a matter of likes or follows.
If you are an artist, stay tuned about the Instagram #gandsilk Open Calls.
