DESIGNER FOR HIRE - imogen joy

Designer for Hire freelance illustrator
Imogen Joy is a new entry in the Designers for Hire Directory meaning she is available now for licensing and commissions. Imogen is an English illustrator and surface pattern designer who had been based in Sydney Australia for 20 years. She has a background in Fine Arts and studied a Masters in Drawing and Printmaking, but discovered the world of pattern design through the wonderful Make it in Design School, about 3 years ago, and fell in love with the process of pattern making.
Imogen describes her style as whimsical, magical, story-like, and quirky. She is really drawn to vintage posters, illustrations and colour palettes, maybe because she often looks back nostalgically to her childhood spent by the English seaside.
She loves to weave story-telling through her designs and her patterns tend to have an illustrative style. She gets a lot of inspiration from her 4 year old son who is an animal enthusiast and this feeds into a lot of her work. They also read an enormous amount together so children's picture books also provide great inspiration. Imogen's favourite motifs to draw are animals, birds, objects, flowers, people, and coastal and seaside motifs.
Going forward Imogen would love to explore the market for children’s home decor, but she also loves designing for stationery, homeware, fabrics, and fashion.
She is interested in commissions, licensing opportunities and would be delighted to find an agent to represent her.  Website / Instagram
