It’s been a little while since I’ve written a blog post, as there has been so much going on. Christmas seems to come and go very quickly these days, mainly because I tend to exhibit at Top Drawer in January, and there is lots of preparation to do for that. I’ve also been working on some new pieces of art for a licensing collaboration. I’ll write more about that when it launches but there’s a few pieces below.
I have also been working with local food company Whitby Seafoods. I created two pieces of art, designed to showcase the British manufacture of their products, with emphasis on their HQ in Whitby. It has been great to collaborate with another local business.
January also means the launch of new cards and licensed gift wrap and bags. I showcased my brand new ‘Colourful World’ range at Top Drawer earlier this week. The designs showcase my love of architecture, finished with a lovely shiny gold foil. I have been working with the lovely people at Deva Designs for 3 years now, and I am delighted to have some art on their 2017 product range, as seen below.
It will be 7 years this year since I graduated and I can’t believe where the time has gone! I exhibited at New Designers ‘One Year On’ in summer 2012, when my business was still in its early stages. I am thrilled to have contributed to their latest blog post which discusses the show and why it’s such a good opportunity for new designers to showcase their work to an exciting but competitive industry.
