Helen dardik

When I'm feeling stuck in a rut or in need for some colour inspiration I often find myself looking at the work of a certain illustrator and designer, Helen Dardik! She is one of my biggest inspirations, I really admire and love her work. She has a very distinctive fun and quirky illustration style. Helen uses the most wonderful colour palette's and quirky characters!! Thought you might like to see some of her lovely surface pattern design, its just gorgeous!!

Take a look at some of the beautiful designs from creative Tamsin, the talent behind Studio Seed. Tamsin has a very distinctive and fresh illustration style. Her portfolio includes surface pattern, typography and illustration. I recently came across her work through a friend and when i saw her designs I was really excited and wanted to blog about it straight away!! You may be familiar with the work she has done previously for Marks & Spencer’s greeting card range. To find out more about studio seed check out her website or visit her blog.

Her typography is so distinctive and eye catching . There was also some lovely images done for John Lewis.
