I am Malin Ekhult, a Swedish graphic and packaging designer that fell in love with pattern design along the way.

I started Dots and whatnot design studio in the beginning of 2017 with the vision of creating my own patterns and graphic art as well as helping others to fulfill their creative vision.

My take on design is that it should be fun, unique and affordable as well as sustainable. When you create your own design or bye a unique piece that you feel proud of then you tend to cherish it more and are not as prone to switching it out or throwing it away. This is a huge win for your wallet as well as for the environment.

Products and collaborations

At the moment I’m able to offer my products to Swedish residents on my website but if you are interested in anything special just let me know and I will see what I can do. I am however able to licens art work and patterns to people and companies all over the world.

If you are interested in a collaboration, have questions regarding licensing or just want to say hi, send me an email at hello@dotsandwhatnot.com.


Stay safe and lots of love!
