This is a small sampling of surface pattern designs I have created over my career, showing a wide range of styles I am capable of designing within. I love to experiment with different mediums, color palettes and moods in my designs. I am highly skilled in both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, as well as in developing repeats.
Potential licensees: Please contact me if you would like to view my larger portfolio. I can prepare a private gallery of designs for you to review. This service is only available to potential licensing partners, so we will qualify all requests before preparing a gallery and providing a password. Thank you!
I would love to hear about your project! I am a passionate and experienced creative director, designer, and product development manager who thrives on taking products to the next level by incorporating exciting surface design.
Within the Home Décor category, Kim Sabel innovated a line of dimensional placemats called LacematsTM, named for their intricate cut-work designs.
Materials used included foam, acrylic, faux leather, polypropylene, felt and wood veneer.
The all-custom product line was created for clients Crate & Barrel and Bed Bath & Beyond, and was awarded everyday and seasonal placement. Kim worked directly and cooperatively with the store buyers to provide custom designs to suit their preferences.
Kim developed and designed the logo, brand identity and all packaging associated with the product. She oversaw the product quality direct from the overseas factories, communicating all adjustments needed.
All creative direction, art direction, and design was executed by Kim Sabel.
