Gavin Rutherford is an Illustration graduate, coffee addict and aspiring pattern designer currently based in Edinburgh. Since leaving university, Gavin has been building up an extensive portfolio of intricate pattern designs and one-off prints.
His work is inspired by a variety of sources, from floral motifs and insects, to shells, crystalline shapes and household objects, leading to quite an eclectic portfolio of designs. His style itself is based on a simple love of delicate pen work and decorative detail. He was recently awarded a pattern scholarship by Rachael Taylor and after studying her online course, looks forward to carving out a career in the surface design industry.
