Pattern Acquires Enlisted Design to Create Industry-first Ecommerce Solution Led by Data and Design
Unique partnership brings all-new design capabilities to further help Pattern become the industry’s premier platform for global ecommerce
Pattern, a leading global ecommerce platform, announced its acquisition of Enlisted Design, an award-winning, industrial design, packaging, branding and digital design agency. The announcement follows the recent closing of Pattern’s inaugural round of outside funding—a $52M investment.
With the acquisition of Enlisted Design, Pattern is able to permanently change the ecommerce landscape as it combines data and design to build brands and products people love. This new offering will give Pattern’s brand partners a consistent leadership advantage and the ability to further differentiate themselves in an often crowded marketplace by providing an ecommerce experience to truly rival that of the traditional in-person brick and mortar store.

Enlisted will continue to work with their client partners, and will begin to bring their design expertise to our partners, enabling us to change ecommerce forever.”
Enlisted Design has created game-changing designs for brands like Allbirds, Stance, Nestlé, Arlo, Samsung and many more—including multiple existing Pattern partners. The industry-leading firm has also won multiple awards, such as Fast Company’s Design Company of the Year Finalist, Red Dot’s Worldwide Industrial Design Award, Wired Magazine’s Editor’s Choice and more.
