Detroit-Based Two if by Sea Studios, LLC Debuts First Pattern Lookbook in Anticipation of Surtex 2014 (Booth 251)

Two if by Sea Studios, LLC released its first ever Pattern Lookbook today. It’s full of surface pattern designs, product concepts and color palettes, and aims to invigorate and inspire you. But the lookbook is just a teaser of what Two if by Sea Studios will be showing off at its debut at SURTEX on May 18-24, 2014. SURTEX, held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, is the leading annual tradeshow for selling and licensing surface designs. There the studio hopes to connect with potential clients in the home décor, gift & stationery, craft, sports equipment and textile industries, just to name a few.

Two if by Sea Studios’ founder, Brittany Zeller-Holland said that she is equally excited to meet her fellow exhibiters, stating “I expected to be surrounded by talented people at SURTEX this Spring, but I thought the other designers might be hesitant to compare notes and apprehensions regarding the show. I was pleasantly surprised because designers from neighboring booths have already reached out to me to comment on my preliminary collections. I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone at SURTEX, buyers and designers alike.”

Two if by Sea Studios, LLC is a multidisciplinary studio that works from a small desk, but has an arsenal of big ideas! The studio is available for licensing illustration, surface design projects, freelance design assignments, collaborations, consulting and original art commissions. In addition to its ever-growing library of patterns, Two if by Sea Studios also develops custom designs and collections to suit its client’s needs.

All illustration and design for Two if by Sea Studios, LLC is created by Brittany Zeller-Holland. She and her husband, Dylan, are darn proud to be living in Detroit, Michigan with their rescue pup, Nellie. And it is there, after seven years of testing the waters in various studio and corporate environments, that she has bundled up all of that experience in trend research, product design, illustration, marketing and web design to set out on her own working under the moniker, Two if by Sea Studios, LLC. Brittany’s designs have been featured in many large national retailers such as Target, Walmart, Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics and World Market.

Brittany loves traveling to remote destinations like Patagonia and Mongolia. She also can’t seem to tear herself away from Pinterest, blogs and often slips into daydreams about her next weekend getaway or moving to a cabin somewhere with more snow. Brittany’s various pastimes inherently influence her pattern designs, which feature lively palettes, geometric shapes and modern interpretations of traditional subjects and seasonal celebrations.
