Sarah Devey

It's Follow Friday!

Sarah Devey is an illustrator and surface pattern designer based in London, UK.  Sarah graduated with a first class degree in Printed Textiles and Decoration at Middlesex University.  She then went to continue with her studies at the Royal College of Art, where she studied an MA in Printed Textiles.

Sarah has a love for colour, texture and patterns.  She combines hand-drawn and digital motifs within her designs.  Sarah creates a variety of motifs/patterns within her designs including florals, conversational, animals, texture and geometric.

Sarah has spotted her designs across the high street in shops including Topshop, Marks and Spencer, New Look and Wallis.

I love the combination of different colours Sarah uses in each design, you can see clearly how much passion she has for surface design.  Also looking through Sarah's Gallery you can see that she creates many different designs, she doesn't stick to just the one signature style which is great as it shows diversity.

Happy Monday Everyone!

First of all I'd like to apologize for no blog posts recently.  Unfortunately I became unwell and was unable to physically do anything. I was back on the mend and then managed to break my bone in my elbow. I am well but just need to rest my left arm. So I am off work for a week (Retail Job) but will continue with with my designing and of course some blogging.

I cannot believe we are in the middle of November already! Christmas is round the corner and not forgetting is really does feel like Christmas now the 'Coca-Cola' advert has been on TV, have you seen it yet? Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

Paul Duncan Thomson

It's Follow Friday!

Paul Duncan Thomson is a recent graduate of The Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Printed Textiles Design.  I discovered Paul's work at New Designers, London in Early July this year.  Paul enjoys designing print for fashion particularly menswear.  He is hoping to continue with his passion for fashion at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London.

I love the colours, geometric shapes and textures Paul combines within his designs for menswear.  Paul has used often, quite dull colours including greys and neutrals but has brought in brighter colours such as burnt orange and teal, which completes the colour palette nicely.

You can follow Paul on Twitter @pdthomson.

I hope that Paul has/does continue with his passion for print as I really like his designs and would love to see more.
