DESIGNER FOR HIRE - alisa bloom

We have another new entry today in the Designers for Hire Directory. This time we have the fabulous Alisa Bloom, a designer and illustrator from the San Francisco Bay Area. Alisa specialises in creating illustrations for children’s picture books and publications, as well as surface pattern design for products. She takes her inspiration from mid-century Scandinavian design and Bauhaus modernism. Alisa is available for commissions and would welcome any interest in her work. You can see more or get in touch via her website and follow on instagram.

HOME DECOR - sian elin

Sian Elin has introduced a brand new home collection called 'American Folk'. North and South meet in their new collection inspired by traditional South American Folk art combined with Scandinavian Modern designs of the 1930's. Richly decorated hand-drawn stylised flora, fauna, and birds merge with fluid lines, naive mark-making, and geometrics. Folk patterns reminiscent of the ideals of the Arts and Crafts Movement are reinterpreted in fresh yet warm of-key hues of mustards, yellows, blues, and blush. Cushions, lampshades, and wallpaper are now available at www.sianelin.com. Sian is also pleased to announce an exciting collaboration with BHS.com, who will be exclusively stocking two new Sian Elin lampshade designs (Andes and Desert Fleur).

KIDS DESIGN - joules

I have still been busy taking tore snaps during the past few weeks, but due to the big NYC shows and all the fabulous flyers I haven't been able to post them up. So I thought I'd do a few today starting with a few snapshots from Joules. This beautiful girlswear range features saturated watercolour flowers over delicate hand drawn stripes, and the effect is lovely. I think this range may be a limited edition but you can see what's online currently here.
