Let's Fly Blog Hop

Today I am taking part in the fabulous 'Let's Fly' blog hop. More than 50 designers from across the world have come together to celebrate the start of 2013 by creating a mini design collections featuring Pantone Colour of the Year, Emerald, and based on the theme 'flying'.

If you're taking part in the blog hop you will have arrived here from the WONDERFUL Natalie Alexander's blog, isn't her work gorgeous?! If you've landed on my blog and want to take part in the blog hop you can start from the beginning of the hop here or hop back to Natalie's blog and do the whole thing backwards!

I'll take a second to introduce myself; I'm Rosie, a twenty-something graphic design graduate with a passion for both graphic and surface design, and a style that incorporates both these passions. I love to work with colour and texture and combine graphic illustrations and typography to make a real feast for the eyes!

Here is a sneak peek of my working, I was inspired by how a butterfly develops into a beautiful creature and spreads it wings and flies, hand drawing all my motifs and choosing a fresh colour palette featuring Emerald.


So without further ado, I present to you my Emerald Flying inspired designs, hope you like them!




This year I have some big goals for myself; first and foremost, I want to achieve my first licensing deal. Seeing my surface pattern designs on products has always been my dream and this year I hope to make it a reality!

Thanks for visiting, if you want to see more of my work please take a look around my blog or visit my website. You can also follow me on Twitter and Facebook

I will now pass you on to the wonderful Tiffany Designs, enjoy the rest of the hop!

Big thanks to Rosie from Believe Creative Studio for curating this wonderful blog hop.
