Hi, my name is Maetê Porto. I love to create and share pattern design. I’m a graphic designer and teacher, live in Miami, Florida with my husband since December 2015. Initially, I’m from Brazil, and when I was living there I had a long work experience. I experienced in product development, pattern design, market analysis, fashion trends research, product technology analysis, product mix definition, new materials research, new suppliers research, product development, studies of brand strategies and, patterns collections.
I taught at the University of Vale do Itajaí (UNIVALI – Brazil) about 5 years until 2015 and, I taught disciplines about creativity and ergonomics. My disciplines in graduation were: Creative Process, Creativity and Innovation, Art Direction, Portfolio, Advertising Creation, Computer Graphics, Marketing and Cognitive Ergonomics. Also, I taught at specialist program disciplines like Marketing and Visual Arts. I love yoga, surf, swim, hiking, and stand up paddle. I actually love to be in contact with nature. I also love to travel, fashion, and I’m a photographer enthusiast.
In December of 2015, I moved to Miami for married. Consequently, I started Patternly.design as a way to express myself in new and creative ways. It’s a website of a surface pattern designer where you going to find: patterns to buy, tutorials, news, products, and a lot of inspiration.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy Patternly.design!
