Currently I am making all the pattern designs for this site myself, but soon I will be calling for submissions from other designers who wish to participate in the project. My aim is to make the number one pattern resource on the net. With good steady design orientated traffic using this site on a regular basis, it will be a good place to gain some exposure for any emerging graphic designer. Only designers who have a genuine flare for pattern design will be represented on patterncooler, thus maintaining the quality of the resource. The designer of every pattern on the site will be linked through to a profile page containing information and contact details about that individual. If you are interested in submitting some work, please do go ahead and contact me above.


  1. I’m incredibly happy I have discovered this site, how it is so unknown I don’t understand!
    Are there any terms of use for the patterns? Keep up the good work, I will spread the word!

  5. We are two stay-at-home moms trying to design a website for a home-business start ups. Would we be able to use your backgrounds to quickly get started? Please let me know - as trying to learn how to do this is a lot of time, which we don’t have at the moment

  9. Hello,

    Thank you for this great tool.

    Their is a mistake in the name of the pattern called “Islamic start”, I’m a muslim, and this is not an islamic star.

    Thank you for your efforts.

  11. Hi Harvey. I am trying to add one of your patterns to my blog. How do I do it? I tried downloading, and it did. But now I cannot figure out how to put it onto my blog. It won’t let me.

  18. Hi..
    I love your designs but I can not figure out how to use them in my blog template. I need HTML code. When I download a design, it just downloads a .png file.
    Can you please tell me how I can get the HTML code to create my template?

  20. Hello mr Rayner. I would just like to say thank you so much for creating this wonderful site, and that I will absolutely donate as soon as my PayPal account alllows me. Thank you again.

  21. You have a pattern called “Islamic Star,” while the pattern is quite lovely, it’s not at all related to Islam. It’s actually a Star of David, which is a Jewish Symbol. The symbol of Islam is actually a crescent moon with a small, 5 pointed star

  22. Hi!

    I just happened to come across your site and LOVE! all of your work, it is amazing!

    I am interested in using different designs to design logos, business cards, and other promo/advertising items to sell. Do you allow this, and if so, what is the price per design?

    I look forward to hearing back from you!
