Dream Design 14 - Tiffany Designs

Today we have a lovely entry on Dream Designs from Tiffany Designs a Surface Pattern Designer based in Glamorgan, UK. Her pattern is featured below and Tiffany has explained why she has chosen this design.

The reason I chose this design is because it reminds me of shells on a beach, and I sketched shells to create the design. The pattern works well graphically because it is easy to replicate and sits well when repeated.
As Tiffany didn't specify exactly what her Dream realisation for her pattern would be I hope she doesn't mind me suggesting a lovely silk fabric, maybe on sale at Liberty London... why not? 

After looking closely at Tiffany's work I have realised that she has two distinct styles. One like the pattern she has sent me as her Dream Design, pretty and contemporary, and one which is playful and whimsical. Her patterns are very versatile and could be applied to many different products or markets. Her portfolio contains many placement prints suitable for the children's market or the greeting cards sector. I find her style very modern and fresh with a playful use of bright colour palettes

Tiffany studied embroidery and design at the London College of Fashion and attended Camberwell Art School. She has recently completed all three modules of the on-line course 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design' hosted by Rachael Taylor and Beth Nicolls, and is now looking for freelance opportunities. Her work has appeared on the wonderful Print and Pattern blog three times (thats three times more than me!), and also has been featured on Beth Nicolls's blog Do what you love

  1. what a pretty design Tiffany! Love the colors, motifs and movement in the design. Your dress sketch is really cool too... great for a summer silk dress, with a lingerie vibe :)
    Wow! 3 times on P&P?!?!?! Gotta look for the first two (I've only seen the most recent one). Congrats! That means Bowie really likes your work... and she's right; you create beautiful things ;)

  2. What a great comment Majo... thanks for taking the time x
