Designer Pippa Shaw recently won the Blueprint young designer contest where the prize was a free booth at the show. Pippa is now busy creating lots of new designs to take to the show in New York next month. Her prints and patterns are inspired by nature, rooted in classic design principles and imbued with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic. Pippa strives to retain the hand drawn character of her drawings in her final artwork, whether they are flowing florals or rhythmic geometrics. Her aim is always to create a mood through colour and rhythm that transports us from the hustle and bustle of modern life to a calmer, quieter, more natural place. Pippa is always interested in discussing licensing and collaborations for fabrics, stationery, wallpaper, packaging and home decor and can be found online here.
