Well, things have been incredibly busy for the last six months! I haven’t really been able to take on any new clients but I should have some more time from February. Get in touch if you’d like a quote!
Despite everything, I did manage to complete a new desktop wallpaper for every month of the year and I’ve just updated them for 2014. You can download the lot from my Free Downloads page, along with printables, zines and more.
I’ll be away for a few weeks over Christmas and New Year and won’t be able to reply to emails. I’ve also designed some free printable Christmas gifts tags – download them from Asking For Trouble.
I’ve been adding some exciting new products to my Zazzle store including lamps, wrist watches and wallets!
I’ve spent quite a bit of time this year organising collaborations with other creative folks and launched three of them recently – polymer stamps with Serious Stamp, cross stitch kits and patterns with The Bellwether and custom designed coin purses with my mother. All are available from Asking For Trouble.
The Bellwether always have fun ideas for their website. We changed the site design to a red Christmas jumper style last year and did that again, but we also did a black version just for the Black Friday weekend. It’s a great way to give your site a bit more impact.
I recently designed a new birthday calendar featuring my Look Around characters. Available to buy from Asking For Trouble.
The last project I finished before my Summer break has just launched – a redesign of the Hey Chickadee Shopify store. You can see the previous design here – this time around they wanted to make the site simpler, cleaner and responsive so we used Minimal as a base and customised it with some fun features and a colourful design.
Apologies if you’re waiting on a response from me, but my holiday turned into a hospital stay! I’m pretty much recovered now but please bear with me while I catch up. Like most self-employed people, I am hopeless at taking a break but it’s what I need to do. I expect to start taking on new projects in late September.
If you also need to get yourself well, my new 5 A Day Tote Bag might help with your grocery shopping.
Seasonal produce charts I illustrated and had made into postcards and fridge magnets, available from Asking For Trouble.
Now that my designs are licensed to appear on over 30 different products, from t-shirts and mugs to bedding and wallpaper, I’ve made a new page so it’s easier to browse everything. Check out all my licensed products.
I’m now listed on the Shopify Experts site. If you’d like to compare my work and prices against other Shopify designers and view feedback from my confirmed Shopify clients please do so. I can also offer a Shopify setup service, which will get you up and running with hand-holding and advice all the way.
My fabric designs are now also available to buy as adhesive decals or removable wallpaper from Spoonflower. I ordered some decals myself to decorate my new IKEA unit and I love them.
