Want to be Part of a New Online Surface Pattern Designer Directory?

If you haven't already discovered it, there is a new online directory called The Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers.

On the 'About' page, The Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers is described as "a new online directory offering a colourful but more importantly, useful tool for agents, journalists, design focused bloggers and manufacturers that are looking for new, creative talent in this particular field. The directory lists a broad spectrum of international designers and artists who retain their autonomy. Each designer's listing shows a visual taster of their design style along with their relevant contact information, enabling them to be contacted directly."

The first edition has been put together very nicely; I would love to see more thumbnail images from each designer, as it is hard to get a clear idea of what a designer is about from one image. I also wonder if it should be arranged alphabetically. The project is just in its infancy and will no doubt evolve, and on the whole I think it is an excellent resource. There is a small fee to be included, which is more than reasonable given the amount of time it must take to compile and market. The second edition is due around March/April of this year. If you would like more information, please click through to the Find New Designers site to register your interest.
