Feature Friday - Rosie Simons

For my second Feature Friday this week, I would like to share with you the lovely work of graphic & surface designer, Rosie Simons.

Rosie is a Graphic Design graduate. Her style is clean and simple using fresh, bright colour palettes throughout all of her beautiful patterns.

I love flicking through my twitter feed and coming across updates on Rosie's design work.
Her patterns are always full of colour and interesting combinations of imagery.

 I love the simplicity of these Christmas cards; the one colour background with tiny polka dots creates the perfect backdrop for the beautiful typography and festive imagery. 

Rosie's talent for creating beautiful typography is one thing in particular that I love about her work.
Like the framed designs above - the simple block type combined with ditsy, feminine illustrations around it makes for such a lovely little print. 
A perfect gift for a female family member or friend!

 Again, Rosie's use of colour on these fabrics is fantastic! 
My particular favourite has to be the feather print; I LOVE my shades of blue/turquoise so it was an instant winner with me anyway. However, I love how the cerise pink pops out against the grey base colour which works so fabulously with the accents of turquoise and teal.
These fabrics are available to purchase over on Spoonflower.

Rosie also sells products through Etsy and Society 6
