Designer of the Month April

My name is Jess and I am an illustrator/graphic designer. Born in Dorchester, I grew up in France and after studying art and design in Paris, I decided to move back to my birth country 5 years ago, and now call lovely South East London my home.

As a child, I quickly developed a passion for drawing and animals and would fill all my notebooks with dogs and ponies. As a designer today, this passion has turned me into an illustrator with a penchant for surface design. The natural world still remains my main source of inspiration with cute and quirky animals featuring heavily in my work.

When I am not doodling in my sketchbook or out and about in London searching for new ideas, I enjoy life as an obsessed crafter (knitting and crochet in particular!) I am also a keen traveller and aim to visit one new country a year as I am a firm believer in the idiom that travel broadens the mind.

Archive Summer fruits

Nothing shrieks Summer like a bowl of strawberries. Here is one of our old archive designs which was created for us by Chloe G. A really pretty design which was printed on beautiful paper with a frosty glitter. Just like a spoonful of sugar! delicious!

Christmas 2013

Every single year we love to take a trip to London to view the Christmas windows for ideas and inspiration. On our last visit in 2013 we saw some pretty cute characters in the windows and  if its not something you have done before its well worth putting in your diary! especially if you include a  little shopping along the way! We share these with our designers around Christmas time and here is a sneak peak

  

Archive Quirky Pattern

Here is one of our mugs from the archive which was designed by Lou C, a dedicated illustrator she has seen success with card ranges and surface pattern. We have have worked with her on several occasions and her work always proved popular.
