I thought I'd start with a quick hello and a brief introduction.
My name is Amanda Dilworth and I work as a freelance designer. My studio is situated on the outskirts of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales, from which I draw a great deal of inspiration for my work.
I produce Illustration and Surface Pattern design for licensing in the advertising, editorial and publishing markets and for a broad range of products. These include textiles, apparel, home decor, wallpaper, ceramics, greetings cards and gift wrap.
I am really excited about my forthcoming website which will be online very soon. www.amandadilworth.co.uk
In the meantime I'd like to share some sneak previews of my work and would welcome any comments you may have. I hope by writing my blog I can provide updated, fresh information on the designs that I am producing and participate in the exciting online design community.
Pop Up Xmas Cards Commissioned by Cancer Research
A Range of Greetings Cards and Stationery Commissioned by The Art File
I have been lucky enough to have some of my work for The Art File featured on the Fabulous design blog Print & Pattern.
I have also discovered a really lovely stationery website called Betty's Bureau, on which i was pleased to learn, some of the designs i have done for The Art File are available to buy.
My collection of surface pattern designs, range from the quirky to the sophisticated, here is a small selection, which includes a couple of pieces that are due to be featured in the forthcoming Print & Pattern design book published by Laurence King Publications.
I thought I would finish my first post with some illustrations I have just finished which were inspired by a trip to the not so sunny British seaside!
