New brand, new website

After 15 years as a creative copywriter and two as a freelance illustrator, this year I decided to finally commit myself completely to surface pattern design. 

The result is a date with a booth at SURTEX in 2016 (more on that later) and this shiny new website, dedicated to my surface print and pattern portfolio and nothing else. 

I've moved all my editorial illustration over to BIG, the Brighton Illustrators Group website, and said a final goodbye to copywriting.

To celebrate, I used the free downloads from the Brand Stylist website to develop an understated, laid back and luxurious brand identity that I hope is distinctive and unfussy and reflects the kind of prints and patterns I love to make. Here are some of the elements.
