I adore post and these days I really don't get a lot of physical post so imagine my delight when I received a curious package from Jessica Hogarth.
I was ecstatic to discover a wonderful bundle of gorgeous design courtesy of Jessica Hogarth who was the winner of our Word Up competition back in 2011.
Jessica's designs are stunning and I love her illustrative style and the wonderful atmosphere her designs evoke.
"Jessica Hogarth Designs offers unique prints, cards and home wares featuring hand drawn designs inspired by a blend of Parisian life and the historic buildings and seascapes of the North Yorkshire coast.
Jessica’s designs begin as illustrations in black pen on paper before they are digitally scanned and enhanced with subtle colour schemes. Her final products are produced using both digital and hand printed methods making for a varied range. Jessica’s entire collection prints and products are designed and manufactured in the UK, an industry she is keen to continue supporting.
Her use of bold colour combined with playful illustrations make for a collection of quirky yet sophisticated designs. The prints and patterns typically depict images of daily life, places Jessica has visited or feature strong influences from Robin Hoods Bay and the Yorkshire coast".
Jessica's career is going from strength to strength since graduating in 2010 and this year a colloboration with Lab C to launch of a range of ‘designer edition’ iPhone cases. The seven cases produced with Jessica’s designs feature a mixture of both graphic abstract patterns and highly illustrative conversational prints. A free iPhone app is also available for download, meaning the designs can be used as decorative phone wallpapers.
