Personal Postings - New Designers 2013

I've just returned from spending the back end of last week exhibiting my final collection at New Designers in London. This is just a post to say thank you to everyone who visited our stand and showed an interest in my work. but the response to my work was overwhelming. I'd run clean out of business cards and got to talk to, connect and receive contact details from some very prominent brands! I'm so grateful for the invaluable experience and of course my tutors for choosing my work!

If you are a new visitor who came across my work via New Designers, either picking up a card or a print pack please also feel free to say hello, whether it be a comment, e-mail or tweet! For prospective clients and scouters, a more comprehensive view of my portfolio is available to view online here and a CV is available upon request. All illustrations and patterns featured on both the blog and portfolio are available for purchase or license. Click here to visit the contact page.

Also it should be mentioned that for me, personally, it was a good experience to see the standard of textile and pattern design work that is being produced by some of the best colleges in the UK. I'll be writing articles on some of my favourite designers and their pieces via Pinso in the next few weeks so keep a look out for that.

And on a slightly off-topic note, today Google reader is shutting down so anyone who follows this blog via Blogger will unfortunately lose updates but you can still connect with me via Bloglovin. Bloglovin gives you the option to import the blogs you follow on Blogger via Google or alternatively you can just click the blue button to the left!

Surface & Pattern Design - City Maps

Here is a few surface patterns that I've been working on for the last week or so. The first one was done for Pin Hop and I had so much fun doing it so I decided to start a series. These are all cities I've visited and adored: Paris, Florence and London. Perhaps I'll continue the series when I've a little more free time.

And a last mention, I won't be posting or online over the next week because I'm exhibiting at New Designers in London with my University. I'll be at Stand T76 so if you're exhibiting or attending say hello :)

For Inspiration - Dribbble

Some illustration inspiration via Dribbble. With more recent illustrations I've been working with maps and icons. The second shot reminded me a bit of myself as of late ;) If you're a designer with deadlines possibly you can relate too!

I had my final degree show a few nights ago, hopefully if my camera decides to be friendly I'll post some pictures from that.
