How did we choose these as the top pattern designers?

We know pattern design is important to get right because when a pattern’s even slightly off, it just looks bad. Here is what we looked for when we chose our top 10 freelance pattern designers for 2020:

1. Design quality

When a designer joins 99designs, an expert from our team goes through their portfolio to consider the conceptual thought, technical execution and knowledge of design principles evident in their work. Then, they assign the designer one of three levels:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

Each designer’s level is displayed on their portfolio so you can easily see if you’re working with someone with lots of experience and design chops, or someone that is up-and-coming.

2. Pattern design experience

A pattern’s not like other kinds of design. It has to “work” mathematically. An illustrator or graphic designer might be a great artist, but if they’re not experienced in building patterns, they’re not a good choice for your pattern designer.

In addition to looking at overall quality, we specifically vetted each designer on this list to make sure they had experience with and specialized in pattern design.

3. Professionalism

Our job is to make working with a designer easier for you. So we took responsiveness rates, delivery times and past customer experiences into account to make sure all of our recommended pattern designers are professionals in service as well as design.
