Australian Surface Pattern Designer Annette Winter

About Me

Annette Winter

I am a passionate Surface Pattern Designer and Illustrator, who combines my graphic design and digital drawing skills, to create visually appealing repeat patterns and surface art.

After a creative upbringing and 25 years self employed as a website and graphic/print designer, I have now transitioned into Surface Pattern Design, working under my brand ‘That’s Graphic’. Due to many years working with a large client base from different industries, it has enabled me to be very versatile with the designs I now create for surfaces and textiles.

I feel privileged to be creating designs for wholesale textile companies, and collaborating  and licensing patterns as the opportunities arise.

WHOLESALE PRODUCTS – In recent times, I’ve been developing products for the retail market all which feature my illustrations and designs. Head to the ‘wholesale‘ page to find out more.


Strengths & Processes

I have a strong sense of colour harmonising and balance. The versatility has me creating feminine and whimsical florals, alongside bold and modern geometrics, whilst other designs are fun, comical and uplifting.

I pride myself on attention to detail, great work ethic, efficient time management, organised file preparation and excellent communication skills.

I commence all my designs by first illustrating the elements digitally and then editing and arranging them on my computer to create the patterns or art layouts.

I love what I do, and being an independent Surface Pattern Designer, enables me to give full attention to every project I work on.

Communication has always been a vital part of my business philosophy and I enjoy building good relationships with those I work with.
