About Addicted to Patterns

Addicted to patterns is Bristol-based creative studio founded by Justyna Medon professional printmaker and surface decoration specialist and Mani Swiatek web designer and photographer. True craftsmanship combined with vivid imagination and color matching skills is what they are well known for.

Justyna Medon is surface designer specialized in printed textiles and wallpapers, and head of Addicted to Patterns studio, based in Bristol.

Passionate about silk screen printing. She specialises in designing and printing collections of wallpapers and upholstery fabrics.

Justyna loves to play with various materials and apply colourful patterns as they express potential and extraordinary visual language fulfilled with mystery and symbolism.

She is well known for her skills and professional expertise. This is why she’s asked to collaborate with fashion designers and fine artists. Designing patterns for someone’s cllection is always a great adventure. Developing techniques to print on difficult surfaces like mirrors or knife pleated skirts is what makes her eyes to spark.

Pattern design

Hand-drawn and then transferred to the silk screen linear and organic motifs establish a dialogue with the past times. Justyna draws an inspiration from visual marks created by nature and human activity and refers to the rich history of design. Passionate about eco friendly design, often experiment with recycled materials.

Mani Swiatek is a true problem solver. A visual mind with good IT skills. Taking care of the website, social media, designing catalogues and standing behind the camera during every photoshoot is responsible for the overall digital strategy of the studio.

She was introduced to screen printing 6 years ago, when she came for workshops, to make Christmas presents. Since that time, she got to know this technique well and fell in love with a craft. The fruits of this passion are photo reportage, series of photo shoots, articles and… a marriage.

Addicted to patterns sustainable philosophy

„Materials we use every day come from UK suppliers. We use water based paints (for both wallpapers and textiles) which are less harmful to the environment than any other. We developed the workflow which is efficient and environmental friendly.

Our screen printed and hand designed wallpaper and textiles are made to individual orders. We print only the length needed to decorate walls or a room, which helps us to minimise off-cuts and lower general waste.

We print with passion, for individuals who care about ethics and aesthetics. Colours are mixed by hand in our studio. This is what brings individuality to every wallpaper or fabric ordered from our seasonal collections.
Taking care of the environment also means that we recycle and re-use as many materials as possible. We find this sustainable philosophy raises our sense of creativity.”

Bound with nature

Much of our inspiration comes from the nature. It’s a constant source of ideas for Justyna’s flowing, organic drawings.

We are passionate about the process
From hand-drawn patterns together with colour separation, to hand-mixed colours for our painted backgrounds and silkscreen printing… this is the beauty of craftsmanship and we simply adore it!
