KIDS DESIGN - marks and spencer part 1

I was excited to see Spring arrivals at Marks and Spencer this week with lots of colourful prints appearing in childrenswear. I loved all the hand drawn florals,birds and butterflies, and jungle animals with a papercut feel. Here are some highlights from their your girls and baby departments. See whats new in kids at M&S online here.

DESIGN DIRECTORY - daisy green

The Print & Pattern Designers for Hire Directory has new member today - Daisy Green. Daisy studied Illustration at Falmouth University and graduated in 2013. She currently lives and works from her home studio in Southampton where she loves illustrating fun quirky animals and nature. Daisy loves designing fun and weird animals and using muted natural colour palettes, but feels her handwriting can easily be really commercial when it needs to be. She is available for freelance opportunities and mainly works in the childrenswear print and graphics field but would love to find new opportunities in other areas! To get in touch or find out more please visit Daisy at her website Creative Cub online here.
