Britt Bass Turner

I recently found the work of Atlanta artist Britt Bass Turner via my design Instagram page. I like her abstract use of bold colour and different textures she creates in her paintings. Her new geo series collection of canvas paintings are all unique and showcase her painterly style and geometric compositions.

Another artist that I found on Etsy that I like is Kate Pugsley. I love her muted colour palette and the compositions of her prints. They are fun quirky and beautifully put together.

Some Paper Samples

 

 

With only a few weeks to go until the Degree Show I have started adding some gold foils onto some of my floral wallpaper samples. I have always loved the effect of gold foils and have recently purchased some foils to put onto my fabric samples. Here is a sneak peek of a few of my floral designs,

Some Floral Inspiration

I am currently looking into floral motifs and designs for my wallpaper and interiors collection that will be showcased at my degree show this may. I began by drawing and painting some designs and flowers in watercolour. I have been inspired by the work of Scottish painter and printmaker Dame Elizabeth Blackadder.  Elizabeths florals are fresh in colour and maintain a delicate and whimsical feel. Her drawings are detailed and convey beautiful combinations and arrangements of florals. Here are some of my favourite prints,

Business Card Ideas

In preparation for my degree show in May and New Designers in June I have started thinking about my business card designs. Business cards are essential when showcasing your work at a trade show, it can show examples of your designs and help people remember you and your work. But where to start? what images to use and what font? I’m hoping to keep my card design simple with a sample of my floral designs on the front and my updated contact details on the back . Here are some examples of my possible floral business card designs.
