EMMA JAYNE ILLUSTRATOR & PATTERN DESIGNER

February 5, 2020

I've followed Emma Jayne Designs on Instagram for ages and thought her lovelies are just so damn awesome, I'd share them with you guys today so here goes... 

 

 Here’s a little information about Emma Jayne:

Emma Jayne says that her personal favourites of 2019 are the above collection. 'I went back to using traditional media and produced more patterns than illustrations. I love the effects you can achieve with gouache, watercolour and ink using different sized brushes. I like to create textures, as well as painting animals and other shapes as silhouettes.'

 

'I currently take inspiration from colour, shapes, texture, fashion, graphics, nature, interiors, magazines … actually, pretty much anything I come across which piques my interest! From childhood I have always been passionate about art, coming from a creative family. My father and grandfather both loved DIY, my mum loved fashion and interiors and my grandmother, who I spent every Thursday and most weekends sewing and knitting with me. I knitted my first jumper at 8 years (it was too big and I could not get to wear it until I was about 10!)'

 

 

 

'My design BA and studio work at Dorma made good use of my drawing and colour skills. At Dorma I was involved with the whole design process, from initial concept to bulk printing. I have undertaken various freelance projects over an 10 year period, selling my designs in the UK, around Europe and in America.'

 'I love being creative and playing around with sketches, which later, I develop on my computer. More recently, I have produced illustrations using Pro Create. I don’t really have one particular signature style and I find that this allows me to be versatile. This flexibility is a useful attribute to have when working on briefs for different types of clients.'

 

 'In my spare time, I continually search for new ideas and new inspiration; whether that would be in stationery, apparel, children’s books, to interiors, and even colour themes. I am also a Pinterest addict and before I used Pinterest, I used to keep boxes full of magazine clippings and marketing material.'

 

'Things that I like;

 Vintage patterns & interiors, old and contemporary illustrations, typography, printed fabrics, retro wallpaper, posters, Scandinavian design, pick n' mix sweets, collecting stamps and listening to music whilst working on my computer.'

 

 

 

 

 

 'My objective is to keep up with the current trends, keep updating my skills to constantly strive to become a better designer and to hopefully inspire you through my blog.'

 

Aren't her illustrations just the berries - they make me so happy looking at them!!
