DESIGN DIRECTORY - daisy green

The Print & Pattern Designers for Hire Directory has new member today - Daisy Green. Daisy studied Illustration at Falmouth University and graduated in 2013. She currently lives and works from her home studio in Southampton where she loves illustrating fun quirky animals and nature. Daisy loves designing fun and weird animals and using muted natural colour palettes, but feels her handwriting can easily be really commercial when it needs to be. She is available for freelance opportunities and mainly works in the childrenswear print and graphics field but would love to find new opportunities in other areas! To get in touch or find out more please visit Daisy at her website Creative Cub online here.

If you still need to pick up a last minute card on the high street for tonight then maybe one of these lovely designs from Waitrose will fit the bill. There are colourful hearts, lots of stylish mini geometrics and metallic type, plus cute cards for younger ones. The cards were all designed in-house by their talented greetings card team. In stores today!

STORE SNAPS - dunelm

If you saw P&P yesterday you will know I've recently been to British home furnishing company Dunelm to view their new and exclusive Olive & Orange range by Orla Kiely. Of course whilst I was there I decided to scour the rest of the store for prints and patterns on bedding, cushions, kitchen, kids, wall art etc. Scroll down to see my snapshots and visit them online here to see whats going on print wise at Dunelm.
