DESIGNER - rocio olmo
This weeks Print & Pattern is going to be looking at Memphis inspired designs. This 1980's style trend is inspired by the design Memphis Group which although it may sound American was in fact an art collaborative founded in Italy. The designers took their name from a Bob Dylan song and formed in 1980 after Ettore Sottass organised a meeting with various designers. Inspired by Art Deco, Pop Art and Kitsch the group were producing designs until 1988. Now many contemporary designers are giving this style a modern twist with their take on eighties graphics, patterns and motifs. One of those is Rocio Olmo a designer based in Madrid Spain. Rocio has over 10 years industry experience and designs interiors, logos, packaging, textiles, and more.
