Welcome to the home of the place where I showcase all the colours and patterns that swirl around my head all day long!
I am Ed, and, first and foremost, I have a deep seated passion for colouring in. Having studied Printed Textiles at University I now combine my ever-growing knowledge and understanding of colour and layering with digital processes (Illustrator, Photoshop etc.).
Most of my designs begin with a sketch or a photo of something I have seen out and about. My design process always involves Photoshop or Illustrator – dependent on the style of design I am working on. I use Photoshop to layer images and recreate the application of screen printing and overlaying colours. Illustrator is a great tool when I am working on a design that is very graphic or involves a lot of line work.
I combine these processes to produce vibrant digital and screen printed images (on both fabric and paper) that are inspired heavily by geometric pattern and my love of layering images and texture. You can see my designs by clicking the ‘Prints’ link.
I love to create bespoke artwork for other people – I produce commissioned designs as well as bespoke Wedding Stationery. When I am being commissioned, I work closely with you to build a picture of your life, influences and inspiration – Ideally meeting in person but also via Skype calls and by asking you to add images to a Pinterest board. This enables me to inject personal and unique elements into your design. Once you pick one of the draft ideas to take forward I will create your bespoke artwork; delivery of the final piece is usually 2 to 4 weeks after the initial purchase but some are quicker and some take longer!
I love T-shirts and I love the idea of exclusive design………..so I combined the two! I designed a range of Limited Edition Men’s T-shirts and Women’s vest tops. My design process remains the same but the finished product is a high quality, individually numbered garment that always draws attention. When you purchase a T-shirt or Vest you can be safe in the knowledge that the limited edition run ensures you don’t see everyone else wearing it!
