Design For Breakfast: Patternity
Talk | Dishoom Carnaby Street — For our members

In our first design-led breakfast conversation for 2019, we'll sit down in Dishoom's delightful Verandah with Patternity co-founder, Anna Murray.

We've enjoyed hearing from a feast of design-driven entrepreneurs in the comfort of the verandah at Dishoom's Kingly St eatery — from Wagamama founder Alan Yau to Suitcase Magazine's Serena Guen. All have generously led conversations around building their businesses and the lessons learned along the way.

On the morning of 23rd January you're invited to the next session in the series, at which we'll be joined by Anna Murray — one half of the design duo Patternity;  the multidisciplinary "conscious design organisation" founded by Anna and her partner Grace Winteringham in 2009.

Inspired by a shared passion for the positive power of pattern, Patternity counts Vogue, the V&A and Nike among its clients. Anna and Grace have built a thriving creative business that combines client work with their own events programme and product collections; aiming "to inspire more curious, collaborative and connected ways of living."

2018 saw a high profile collaboration with UK high st institution John Lewis — POSITIVE PATTERNS; and as well as reflecting on such past partnerships, Anna will share coming projects, predictions and challenges for her visually driven business.

If you'd like to save yourself a seat, to hear from Anna and be served a delicious Dishoom breakfast, then please drop us a line below.
