Hi everyone. I’ve entered the Tigerprint Kids Character Design Competition with a little character – she’s one of the Doodle Dolls. She’s very girly, loves flowers, colour and pattern and when she grows up she wants to work as a fashion designer.
She came from a little doodle I did a while ago.
I’d like to work more on these doodles and make some patterns and a collection. Watch this space! ♡
Hi everyone. I haven’t entered a design competition in ages so decided to challenge myself and do a male design. My designs are usually quite cutesy and feminine, so I wanted to create something a bit more masculine.
My influences were the upcoming trend of 90s acid house and comic graffiti with bright colours for males.
I entered these for the Tigerprint Male Pattern Design Competition. ♡
Lots of funky colours and doodles! I combined the two elements of urban (male, geometric shapes like triangles and hard edges) with rainbows (curves and bright colours) to make this composition.
When I removed the colour the composition was still interesting, with lots going on. There was enough variety in the doodle.
These are all the coloured elements of the composition. I thought these would make interesting icons for gift tags and would make a cool repeating pattern for males. ♡
Hi everyone. Yesterday I was thrilled to see my Valentine’s Day Squiggly Hearts design on the Tigerprint Homepage.
Tigerprint asked designers to design a Valentine’s image for their rotating homepage. Check out their website here for my design and those of other talented designers. ♡
Hi everyone. I have been busy blogging for other people, so my blog has been a little bit quiet. I just want to keep you posted on what I’ve been up to.
I’ve written another guest post for the fabulous Tigerprint Youblog. I talked about inspirational toys from my childhood. Anyone remember Holly Hobbie, Victoria Plum, the Care Bears, My Little Pony or Rainbow Brite? You can read it here.
I’ve also written a post for Dawn Clarkson of Nice and Fancy. She created a feature called Dream Designs where she asked us to choose our favourite design and a dream application for it. We were allowed to Dream Big! I chose my Quirky Hearts design and applied it to a stationery line at my favourite stationery shop Paperchase.
You can read all about it here on Dawn’s lovely blog.
I have also been asked to blog for another great design blog and will report back when I’ve been featured. So I have been busy blogging elsewhere but not forgetting my own lovely blog! ♡
Hi everyone. I am very excited to say that I have been asked to contribute to Tigerprint’s Youblog. Tigerprint is the design company behind M&S and run competitions to find new design talent.
So it is quite an honour to be asked to join the Youblog team.
You can check out my first blogpost for them here ♡
