Exciting news!

Square Up

Oranges & Lemons
It's been a while since my last post but I have some exciting news! A while ago I submitted some designs to be considered for inclusion in an upcoming book which will be published by The PatternBase. Last week I was thrilled to find out that seven of my designs have been chosen for inclusion in the book which will be called 'PATTERNBASE: A Collection of Contemporary Textile & Surface Design.' It is due to be published at the end of the year, and can be pre-orderd here. Above are two of the selected designs. I'm very excited to be a part of The PatternBase's first book!

Pencil patterns

Pencil Stationery: (Clockwise from left) A4 folder, notebook, post-it notes, pencil case

Pencil Stationery: (Clockwise from left) Diary, notebooks, post-it notes
Here's a couple of stationery concept boards I've been working on. Using pencils to decorate a set of stationery could be a little obvious but I started drawing these stylised pencils and I had to incorporate them into the designs. I like the fresh feeling of the bright colours paired with the neutral backgrounds which give them a little zing.
