Summer School

This summer I took part in the Make it in Design Summer School, this was an amazing experience (and free!), we were set three briefs over 6 weeks and they all made me stretch my pattern-making muscles! The briefs focussed on current trends which was great for me as I tend to lean towards Nordic themed designs and forget there are so many other things I could be doing! As with the other courses I've done with MIID team the community support and feedback is really lovely, especially if you work alone in a small box like me! If you're thinking of doing one of their courses just do it! The only catch is all you will think about all day is patterns :)

Here are some of the new designs I came away with...

MOYO Magazine

I'm really chuffed to have been featured in the issue no.6 of MOYO magazine! This is a great magazine dedicated to surface pattern design so I'm really proud to be a part of it alongside some pattern chums.

Nordic Cushion Delights

I'm hoping these squishy friends wouldn't look out of place in a Norwegian log cabin!

Bird of Paradise

Staying with the tropical theme, this wallpaper print is inspired by a bird of paradise.

Tropical Treats

Even though I've still got my heating on I've been feeling tropical of late! I've created this collection of retro patterns which has made me want to drink a pina colada out of a coconut.
