DESIGNER FOR HIRE - skye st. studio

We had two new entries join the Designers for Hire Directory during the run up to Blue Print. The second entry we have is Skye St. Studio, a small textile and surface pattern design studio based in Sydney, Australia. It was founded in early 2018 by Crystal Kruger after a decade of working in textile and design education. Her background is in fashion design, having graduated from Whitehouse Institute of Design in Sydney in 2008. Skye St. Studio specialises in working with other creative businesses to deliver textile prints and surface pattern designs for fashion, swimwear, bolt textiles, homewares, kids wear and lifestyle products. Crystal’s philosophy is to create exciting, fun, fashion forward prints with a unique perspective, to help your products stand out in a crowded marketplace. Crystal’s designs are inspired by other cultures, landscapes, art, world textiles, nature and fashion. At Skye St. Studio they generally hand illustrate and paint design motifs in gouache and watercolour, before digitising these to create exciting, trend-driven patterns with a twist. Working this way allows for the beautiful variation in tones and textures to come through into the designs we create, giving them life and soul and that personal touch. Crystal especially loves to create conversational prints and painterly abstract patterns. Skye St. Studio is available for freelance textile and surface pattern design and illustration, as well as collaborations. Skye St. Studio also has a library of prints available for purchase or licensing through the website. Crystal also has a library of exclusive designs being represented by Pattern Observer Studio.
