Today I am so happy to restart my 'Dream Designs' blog feature, it's been a while and I am pleased to say I have some great designers and some lovely work lined up for the coming weeks so stay tuned.
‘Quirky Hearts’ is my favourite design because it incorporates one of my favourite icons – a love heart. There is something innocent and hopeful about drawing little love hearts all over your books as a child. This represents the spirit of Dreaming on a Star – innocent, childlike but full of hopes and dreams.
My dream application would be a stationery line at Paperchase. Paperchase designs are joyful and full of life. They have a quirky and playful element especially in the ‘cute’ lines and I like to think that my work would fit in with their style.
I have looked closely at Tina's portfolio and I find her work very fresh and fun loving. Quirky and graphic patterns radiate a sense of happiness which shines through in almost all of her designs. Her distinctive hand drawn style lends itself to some very cute character designs and also works well when using typographic elements. Tina has a very versatile portfolio of designs which are not only suitable for stationery but also for textiles and in particular the children's sector. I have a soft spot for heart designs of any form, so my favourites are the 'Quirky Hearts' patterns which Tina has chosen to send me for this feature.
