I am a freelance surface designer from Sweden with a love for playful and pretty patterns. Living in the swedish countryside, I draw inspiration from the nature that surrounds me, as well as mid century scandinavian design and old adventure novels when designing. My work is created in Adobe Illustrator, resulting in vector-based repeat patterns that are easy to edit. I’d like my patterns to evoke happiness and contribute to a little more beautiful everyday life, and always look for that perfect flow when assembling my motifs.

If you have any questions, are interested in working together and would like access to my full catalogue of patterns – or simply would like to say hi, I’d love to hear from you. Visit helena-nilsson.com for more info.
