Designer Spotlight - Emily Hogarth

{images borrowed from Emily's website -}

I just came across the wonderfully talented Scottish designer / illustrator - Emily Hogarth (that's her above, and the last pic is of 'Mary' the Highland Terrior!).
 Emily does amazing paper-cut work and I felt I just HAD to share her immense talent with you!

Emily works mainly with papercuts, she loves the combination of boldness and delicacy that they bring to her designs, which work as stand-alone pieces of art or often translated into a printed medium (eg  fabric designs or stationery).

Establishing herself as a self-employed artist: 

Since completing her masters in Edinburgh Collage of Art in 2008, Emily has been working as a self-employed illustrator and surface designer. Her distinctive illustrations and bold designs have provided Emily with success over the past few years. Most recently, her designs have been seen on the Cadbury’s Flake ‘Allure’ as well as the Nivea Pearl and Beauty global campaign. Since graduation she has worked with: Nivea, Cadbury’s, Red Magazine, Lloyds Bank, Jasper Conran for Debenhams; Bebaroque; Graham and Brown; Tigerprint; Studio Roam; Medici Cards; and Cole and Sons.

'Stand out in a crowd’ is a 2 colour screenprint created from a variety of papercut birds.
The print was created in 2009.

Sometimes Emily does commissioned artworks too, especially for weddings. That would just be sooo special, wouldn't it?

You can purchase some of Emily's products here, or follow her blog here.
OR best of all, why not buy her wonderful book?!

Fantabulous isn't she?!

Take care,
