Hi, I’m Sarah, a freelance textile and surface pattern designer. I design prints for licensing, as well as for products, and blog here about design and expat life.
a little about me
I love making digital art, and have been making patterns on the computer ever since the ‘scribble and fill colour’ days of MS Paint!
Now I create seamless patterns for all kinds of use – fashion, product, interiors, digital product – whatever your brand needs! I also make some cute printables for lifestyle and decoration
I‘m self-taught in Illustrator and Photoshop and have a BA degree in
Textile Crafts from the University of Huddersfield.
I have enjoyed working for a couple of small print businesses since then, mixing the creative side of design with hands-on practical experience
– most recently as an in house designer and digital-fabric-printer-operator in a lovely traditional fabric mill where I gained a ton of industry knowledge.
In early 2019 – after living my whole life within half an hour of Manchester – I relocated to a small city in Austria on the Italian and Slovenian border, where I spend my time designing and exploring with my camera!
I also blog about ex-pat life, as well as writing about design, creativity
and sharing my artwork and process.
CUSTOM PRINT DESIGN
Are you looking for exclusive prints for your brand? Whether it’s a single placement print, design for embroidery or a collection of seamless repeats I’d love to create something magic for you! I can provide trend direction and create a unique collection just for you, and can comfortably design for fashion, interiors, stationery and kids.
Do you have a logo or piece of artwork you need a repeat print of? Or some hand painted or vintage imagery you’d love to use in your collection?
I can create a high quality seamless pattern from most source material and create a dynamic modern design tailored for your brand.
I can also clean up files and fix repeats.
CADs, GRAPHICS AND BRANDING
Whether it’s for your packaging, social media or product I am an experienced graphic designer and can work with you to create logos, colour schemes, graphic packs and more to give your brand a coherant look. I can also create fashion CADs and mood boards
