Co-Founder, Patternity UK
PATTERNITY Co-Founders Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham have been decoding the visual rhythms and cycles of everyday life since 2009. Inspired by a deep-rooted belief in the power of pattern to positively change the world and expand our lives, they created the world’s leading online visual archive of pattern imagery, from art, science, nature, fashion and design. From its East London base, PATTERNITY swiftly grew from a platform of mesmerising imagery to become a fully-fledged interdisciplinary creative studio, with a programme of events and educational initiatives. Their work explores the patterns (both seen and un-seen) that make up life and shows others new ways of seeing and feeling more inter-connected.
Anna and Grace’s expertise, creativity and unique perspective have been sought by the likes of Apple, Bompas & Parr, the BBC, the Barbican Centre, Céline, Clarks Originals, Diageo, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Getty Images, Granta, Levi’s, Nike, Selfridges, the School Of Life and the V&A. Their first book, A New Way of Seeing, was published in 2015, followed in 2017 by Be Great, Be Grateful, a gratitude journal to inspire people to incorporate patterns of positive thinking and behaviour into everyday life. PATTERNITY-designed product ranges are sold in major museums and iconic retailers worldwide.
