home: found this [ Anna Hayman ]
Print designer Anna Hayman creates beautiful 60s & 70s patterns through turning original linocuts into wallpapers, fabric and art prints. These gorgeous patterns are particularly stunning on her range of lamp shades.
Anna has now collaborated with illustrator Beth Faser to create these A3 character piece aet prints. There are four designs in the collection and we love them.
‘I wanted to create some fashion style illustrations incorporating my patterns and when I was introduced to Beth, I knew she was the perfect partner for the project with her bold and louche style. She cleverly mixes ink painting with paper collage to create these languid characters, I think the style combines with my prints really well, and I love the feel of these super laid back girls’
Lamp shades [ from £295 ] and prints [ £35 ] available at rockettstgeorge.co.uk
home: featured [ Jo Angell ]
In the lovely old-meets-new development at Kings Cross (London), Granary Square was host to this year’s Design Junction. A huge spread of exhibitors showing new season products and interior trends as well as super brands popping up shop selling current products, home accessories, accessories and furniture.
Here we got to meet the lovely Jo Angell and see her brand (of the same name) selling her gorgeous pattern and architectural lead designs in print, on homewares and stationery. Angell, based in North London, from her extensive and successful graphic design background now produces her designs on fabric, art prints and wall paper, as well as translating these designs to tea towels, ceramic mugs and greetings cards.
Her patterns are crisp and fun using great colours, and all pieces would be fantastic in a modern home. Her prints would stand out alone on a wall but work excellently in a gallery cluster and her kitchenwares would brighten up any crisp white kitchen. We love her bold designs taken from images of an favourite London architectural site – the old, no longer used, gas holders, which turn these metalwork giants into a great colourful abstract prints on paper and fabric.
Check out the online store for shopping or to find out where she is exhibiting next or upcoming projects.
