New Found Designers

Posted On: Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy finding new illustrators and designers to share with you. Coming up are a few of my favourite finds, along with a few of their lovely products they have to offer.

First up is Becky Baur, a British designer who applies her illustrations to textiles, ceramics, cards and prints. With a beautiful simple colour palette and hand drawn style, her designs are easily recognisable and are sold worldwide. This is one designer to keep a look out for.


These are a collection of illustrators I found on the Blue Island Press website, I was attracted to their quirky style and use of subject and colours. Each of these illustrators work make me smile, as they create a sense of positivity within their illustrations.

My final designers were found at a trade fair, with their work showcased on the Curiouser and Curiouser website, which makes artists work accessible and easy to buy. They support many international artists, but again these particular illustrators and designers caught my eye for their quirky style and interesting subject matter.
