FolioFocus "The Everyday" Showcase

Kristy de Castro

Last week's theme in FolioFocus was The Everyday and we had a wonderfully charming trend to accompany the week's brief. Above is piece by Kristy de Castro. Her beautiful use of colour and incredible texture really make these objects something special!


Claire Morosi

Once again we have some work in process images to share. Below Claire gives a little peek at how she approached last week's class assignment.

"I usually start by brainstorming ideas that come from a first read of the brief. What usually happens is something sticks in the mind and then I go off on a tangent - quick sketch, then on to a more detailed one. Sometimes I abandon everything, sometimes I go to a different thought and see where that takes me. There are occasions when I can't keep one thought going and I get frustrated - nothing is coming together. I don't start with a moodboard although I bring ideas together and then look for a spark.

For this brief I was thinking about the curtains and window dressings that get left in a house and then I also thought about how beautiful old windows are... what about old room dividers and screen? gates? on to thoughts about what could be waiting to be found in an attic and the ragdoll popped into my mind. Also a while ago we bought a house that was built in about 1870 and behind all the layers of 60s wallpaper was a layer of floral paper that we think was the original wall covering - delicate roses and a lot of faun and sage colour - so that also popped into my mind. I take these ideas and doodles into photoshop and start playing around with colour and texture, size and position. I use a lot of layering in my work so this is also the bit that excites me the most - seeing what effects I can achieve by overlaying.

The work just sort of evolves. For some reason I was looking through some old design work the other day and found some typography - a series of children's rhymes like 'ibble obble blackbobble' and 'High low medium dolly rocky pepper' and I decided to try this sort of thing with the rag doll.

At some point I have to make my mind up and get on with it!

It's exhausting but extremely enjoyable."

Our classmates used their knowledge of the 'food and kitchen' class theme to produce meal time pictures and recipe cards.

Bright and colourful illustrations of kitchen utensils and delicious food items were assembled to 'cook up' a world of inviting recipe ideas.Here is a selection of what they created.

Mmm, so tasty! If you happen to give any of these a try, be sure to let us know.

Designer Spotlight: Jessica Hogarth

HELLO, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF:

Hey! I’m Jessica Hogarth from Whitby, a picturesque fishing town on the North Yorkshire coast of England. I spend my days working from my studio on the east side of the town, and my free time socialising with friends and playing hockey! My coastal upbringing has had a big influence on my work and I love being so close to the sea. 

HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATOR?

Since I began my degree in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design I have been very passionate about illustration and surface pattern, but I wasn’t focused on art during my upbringing despite taking a fine art A level. I was sporty and musical, and after studying one semester of classical music I left to reassess my options and I discovered the surface pattern course. Looking back on my A level work, it was always quite pattern led, but since I didn’t really plan on following an artistic career I had no idea just how many different types of creative courses were out there until I started looking for them! 

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY/WEEK LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

My weeks are really varied, depending on deadlines and how many emails I have coming in. At some point you can guarantee I will be packing orders, doing some accounting, utilising social media and responding to emails. The odd week does go by where I don’t even pick up a pen to draw, but that is happening less and less which is good! 

IF YOU COULD GIVE YOUR 10 YEARS YOUNGER SELF ONE KEY PIECE OF ADVICE OR AN INSIGHT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Homesickness subsides eventually! It took me quite a while to settle in to university life but by the end of third year I didn’t want to leave! I definitely feel like I made the most of my time studying, but I wish I had worried less at the beginning. 

WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK OR IN A DESIGN RUT, HOW DO YOU GET YOURSELF OUT OF IT AND BACK ON TRACK?

Taking a break is definitely necessary for me. I find it hard to work when surrounded by clutter, which is something I have only recently realised. I tidy up my work space when I am feeling in a rut, take a break from looking at my work and come back to it hopefully with a fresh pair of eyes later. 

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN TOOLS?

Definitely paper and my 0.38 muji pens. Other than that, I sometimes use ink and brushes for creating little patterns, but the colouring of my artwork is done on Adobe Illustrator, so I definitely need a scanner, my computer and wacom tablet! 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DESIGN PROCESS? 

My design process is fairly simple. All of my illustrations begin as black pen on paper before they are scanned in to the computer. I occasionally tidy them up in Photoshop, but all of the colouring is done in Illustrator. I also use this program to put illustrations in to repeat, or decide on the final layout for a piece of work. When I was at university I was a little more experimental, but this way of working has been successful for me, and it feels like the most natural way to create my art. Other than that my favourite app is Instagram. It’s addictive and I spend more time on there than I probably should! 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN PROJECTS TO DATE?

I was thrilled to work with the RNLI in 2014, when I created multiple fish illustrations and patterns for use across a variety of textile and stationery products. 

A different but really fun project was designing the art for a salad bowl used in a giveaway by Florette. My face went on to the packaging of salad bags in shops across the UK, and winners won a contemporary bowl, with the illustrations on it done by me! 

Repeat pattern is my passion, so it’s a pleasure to be collaborating with UK based company Deva Designs. I have created every day and Christmas art for them since 2014. The designs are put on to gift wrap and bags and sold in independent outlets across the UK, as well as some high street stores including Waterstones and John Lewis. 

WHO ARE YOUR DREAM CLIENTS OR WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT?

 I worked with the Wall Street Journal a couple of years ago, and created an illustration for an article in their Mansion magazine. I would love to create more work for editorial. I’d also love to work with Anthropologie (who wouldn’t?!) and Fishs Eddy, to create some quirky illustrations for their homewares. 

THERE HAS BEEN AN ART SUPPLY SANCTION IMPOSED AND DESIGNERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO POSSESS 3 ITEMS/TOOLS, WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

Loads of paper, pen and ink.

WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?

Here, there are everywhere! I love getting out and about, and think being out of the four walls of my studio is good for getting creative ideas going. When I am in work I like to use Pinterest to look at visually exciting work, which always makes me feel inspired to get creative myself and push my own ideas.

WHO WOULD YOU SAY THE GREATEST DESIGNER IS?

That is an impossible question to answer! I love everything that Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co is about so I am going to say her if I must pick one, but really there are loads I could mention.

WHEN I'M LONG GONE:

I hope people remember me for being a happy and thoughtful person.  

Designer Spotlight: Puck Selders

HELLO, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF:

Hi!

I’m Puck Selders, a freelance designer and illustrator living in Leiderdorp, the Netherlands, with my partner and 2 wonderful children. 
I love all things cute, children´s books, dancing mambo, theatre, the beach, being outside, art, fashion and everything food related :D

 

For as long as I can remember I've been passionate about drawing, painting, fabrics and beautiful colors. 
I studied Fashion and Textile design at The Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. 
After graduating in 2000 I started working in-house as a babywear designer for several companies. 
In 2013 I became freelance, so that I could focus on surface pattern design and illustration. 
Creating cute and joyful art just makes me really really happy and I´d love to share it with others.

HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATOR?

Well, when I studied at the art academy, I honestly had no clue about what I wanted. I only knew that I wanted to do ‘’something creative’’ and that I was crazy about fabrics, beautiful colors and drawing. But I didn’t even know I could draw the way I can draw now, until I started working at Sign-D, my first in-house job. I discovered I really loved to create cute and funny illustrations and patterns and learned how to work with computers! I was so afraid of computers during my study, hahaha!

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY/WEEK LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

That totally depends on if i’m on a commission or not. But Monday is my day off, I spend it with my little one Jimi, he’s 3, so he’s not going to school yet. On Tuesday and Wednesday I’m working all day, most evenings too, when the kids are asleep and if I don’t go to the gym. If I’m on a commission, I also work on thursdays and fridays. If I’m not on a commission I’m working on building my portfolio and trying to get new clients. But each day starts with a large cup of coffee!!

IF YOU COULD GIVE YOUR 10 YEARS YOUNGER SELF ONE KEY PIECE OF ADVICE OR AN INSIGHT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Be more self- confident!

WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK OR IN A DESIGN RUT, HOW DO YOU GET YOURSELF OUT OF IT AND BACK ON TRACK?

I’ll do something totally different, like going to the gym or doing the dishes. Something that clears my head. Or, I’ll take my paint and pencils and have some fun with that, just without thinking or any pressure, making some simple stripes , dots or structures.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN TOOLS?

My Wacom tablet and pen.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DESIGN PROCESS? 

Sometimes I make some little doodles and sketches with pencil and paper. Without looking for reference first, just using my imagination. Scan it into Illustrator and work from there. But mostly I start gathering reference first (not too much!) and then just start drawing in Illustrator, I do have a lot of fantasy so ideas just appear while drawing. I usually draw way too much icons, hahaha. 

Favourite program: Illustrator. Favourite Apps: Instagram and Pinterest

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN PROJECTS TO DATE?

I recently designed some colouring pages for Zeeman, so much fun! I also designed artwork with a circus theme for Zeeman, they create a lot of cool products with it, like toys, greeting cards, stickers.

WHO ARE YOUR DREAM CLIENTS OR WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT?

I’d love to see my work in Paperchase! Or design tableware for Rice! Land of Nod, Lilipinso…also on my list. But just as long as I can draw cute things I’m happy!

THERE HAS BEEN AN ART SUPPLY SANCTION IMPOSED AND DESIGNERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO POSSESS 3 ITEMS/TOOLS, WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

Laptop, tablet and pen.

WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?

Everywhere! Nature, food, just a combination of colors, my kids, watching dancers, Instagram and Pinterest. But also sad things, like when my sis was diagnosed with cancer last year. She asked me to design a card for here so I did..

WHO WOULD YOU SAY THE GREATEST DESIGNER IS?

Tough question! Can’t name just one designer, but lately I’m absolutely in love with Noëlle Smit’s work, a dutch illustrator, so colorful!

Designer Spotlight: Kelly Angelovic

HELLO, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF:

My name is Kelly Angelovic and I’m an illustrator and designer from Boulder, Colorado. Specializing in hand lettering, illustration, and surface pattern design, I also love to play with packaging, editorial design, and children’s picture books. I have my own line of soulful paper goods (Shop.KellyAngelovic.com) which includes greeting cards, notecards and thank you notes(all printed on 100% recycled paper). Represented by the amazing Jennifer Nelson, my client list includes Robert Kaufman, Papyrus, Design House Greetings, and Oopsy Daisy among others. 

HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATOR?

Being an illustrator lights me up. It makes my soul sparkle. 

I have always been creative but I didn’t discover my path as an illustrator until my daughter was born. Hazel was a bundle of joy, but she absolutely turned my world upside down. Needing a creative outlet, I started drawing while she slept. In those short pockets of time, it was like a light switched on. It fed my soul and made me a better mom--and I haven’t looked back. 

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY/WEEK LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

I’m a mom to two high octane amazing little beings. My daughter is almost 6 and my son is 3. Each week is a dance between being fully present with my children and tending to my career. I couldn’t do what I do without the support of my husband and life is incredibly full. Some days are harder than others (and some are absolutely AMAZING). I wouldn’t have it any other way.

To answer your question, every week is different which I really enjoy. Some weeks are filled with commissions--I recently finished a series of illustrations for an LGBT wedding planner guide. This week, I’m working on several hand lettered images for a book of inspiring spiritual phrases. 

I also just received the latest shipment of new cards for my line which is so exciting! The size of my collection has almost doubled in size so I’m busy sending catalogs out and putting new orders together.

I’ve just recently returned from New York as well, where I attended Surtex for the first time. Getting ready was a push, but what fun we had! Meeting the whole Jennifer Nelson Artists' crew in person was incredibly inspiring, and it was so lovely to meet clients face-to-face as well. 

IF YOU COULD GIVE YOUR 10 YEARS YOUNGER SELF ONE KEY PIECE OF ADVICE OR AN INSIGHT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

This path, this creative life, isn’t the easy way. It will take longer than you think and though the highs will make you feel like you can fly, the lows will be rough. Keep going. It will all be SO INCREDIBLY worth it. 

WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK OR IN A DESIGN RUT, HOW DO YOU GET YOURSELF OUT OF IT AND BACK ON TRACK?

When I’m in a rut, I try to shift gears. Taking a walk or moving my body works wonders. So does a change in my work environment. When I’m really stuck, I head out to a local coffee shop which almost always loosens things up. 

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN TOOLS?

I’m a digital girl, so I couldn't do what I do without my laptop and the adobe creative suite. I also just invested in a cintiq and it has become my new favorite toy--though I did what I do for a long time with just a mouse.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DESIGN PROCESS? FAVOURITE APPS AND PROGRAMS

Everything starts with pencil and paper. From there, I scan everything into illustrator, clean it up and add color. This is my favorite part of the process and often takes the longest. Once happy with my chosen palette, I add texture and depth, and fine tune everything in Photoshop. 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN PROJECTS TO DATE?

Hands down, my favorite design project has been creating my own line of paper goods. I’ve always loved notecards and it’s been a long held dream of mine to have my own collection. I’m in 9 stores now and I hope that number only grows from here. 

Shop.KellyAngelovic.com

WHO ARE YOUR DREAM CLIENTS OR WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT?

I’d love to hand letter the cover of a magazine, illustrate a whimsical children’s book, and/or have my own set of dishes at Anthropologie. More than anything though, I just want to be able to keep doing what I love.

THERE HAS BEEN AN ART SUPPLY SANCTION IMPOSED AND DESIGNERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO POSSESS 3 ITEMS/TOOLS, WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

I would choose a pencil and my sketchbook. And I suppose my laptop--though that feels pretty uninspired. Scratch that. I think I’d actually rather have a paintbrush and two tubes of paint (you can always find something to paint on, right?). This way, I’d get my hands dirty and finally learn how to paint (for real) off screen.

WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?

There is a lot of pain in our world, but there is also so much breathtaking beauty--I’m completely in awe of the natural world. I’m inspired by my children and their natural leanings toward joy and fun. By other creatives who bravely follow their hearts and put their work out into the world. Visually, I’m inspired by bold color. By vintage packaging and typography. I’m drawn to a bohemian aesthetic and unexpected floral arrangements. Plus, I adore whimsy and real-life magic. 

When I'm long gone, I hope people remember me as someone who:

left the world better than I found it, and as someone who encouraged others to follow the whispers of their hearts.

Designer Spotlight:Nataša Kaiser

HELLO, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF:

I’m an Illustrator from Frankfurt/Germany. I’ve been working as a Graphic-designer in advertising for the longest part of my business life, but followed the calling of my heart a few years ago and now spent most of my days illustrating children’s imagery and also love to play with pattern design and hand lettering.

HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATOR?

Actually: yes! But for a long time I didn’t follow that dream, because I wasn’t convinced I could earn a living by just doing what I love. I thought, payed work has to be something „more serious“ and so I studied Communication Design and ended up in advertising. It wasn’t bad at all and I had a good time – but this little voice inside of me kept calling me and so I drew and doodled whenever I found the time. I even took painting classes, that I thoroughly enjoyed!

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY/WEEK LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

My ideal day looks like this: When everybody left the house for work and school I walk the dog and shop for lunch. Back home I make myself a big cup of coffee and sit down to check my emails andtodo list. Right now I’m busy with prepping my second exhibit at Surtex, where I will be in May together with our art collective Finch&Foxglove. So I’m working on my portfolio book, booth banner, promotion items and so forth. At around noon I start cooking lunch for my daughter and husband who are usually home for that time. We enjoy eating together and updating each other, and afterwards everybody turns to their businesses again. I go to my studio in the basement and try to get some more work done. When I’m satisfied with my achievement for the day I love to have a glas of whine on the couch, where I’m accompanied by our dog and the two cats – and my husband, when he’s home. I love drawing on my iPad pro. Many projects start out as a sketch here and are taken further on my computer afterwards.

When the day is not so ideal I have to do a lot of errandsin the morning and I am my daughter’s taxi driver in the afternoon. So I eventually start my design work in the late afternoon and stay up late.

IF YOU COULD GIVE YOUR 10 YEARS YOUNGER SELF ONE KEY PIECE OF ADVICE OR AN INSIGHT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I think I’ve just answered this one: Listen to your heart, follow your dream and work hard towards it. 

WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK OR IN A DESIGN RUT, HOW DO YOU GET YOURSELF OUT OF IT AND BACK ON TRACK?

I flip through old sketchbooks, while listening to music or audiobooks. I keep a list of things that I want to draw and sometimes I’ll pick one, start drawing and see what happens. If I don’t feel like creating at all, then I don’t force myself too much. Usually a one-or-two-day-break is enough to miss pen and paper again.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN TOOLS?

Inexpensive paper, mechanical pencil with 0.9 lead „B“, kneaded eraser. Caran d’Ache Gouache and Kuretake Gainsai watercolor. When painting I use a DIN A 3 paper pad with heavyweight paper and pretty smooth surface. It scans really well and I don’t have to remove a lot of grain when working in photoshop. Lately I’ve enjoyed drawing directly on my iPad pro a lot!

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DESIGN PROCESS? FAVOURITE APPS AND PROGRAMS

Usually I brainstorm an idea and draw some thumbnail sketches. Sometimes I’ll sketch straight on the iPad and manipulate the sketch till I like it. When using paint I dedicate some hours to playing with paper and paint. I scan in and clean up all my icons and then arrange everything in Photoshop. I’m a pixel gal. I love experimenting with different media just for fun, such as potato print and mixed media. The output can be very inspiring…

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN PROJECTS TO DATE?

I’m a MATSIE and thankful for many great experiences and learnings I had in that classes. (The biggest plus for me certainly was being connected to „my tribe“ and especially to the girls from Finch&Foxglove.)

The last class I’ve taken was the first „Illustrating children’s books“ that was great fun! I learned, that I really enjoy the process of developing imagery for a story, bringing characters to life and working on the same topic over a certain period of time.

In general developing characters is what I love most. Also drawing little scenes and trying to show certain expressions is great fun to me. 

Last but not least: the FolioFocus challenge is super and certainly one of my favorite portfolio building projects!

WHO ARE YOUR DREAM CLIENTS OR WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT?

I would love to illustrate a children’s book with animal characters and a fictional story. Also it would be great to see my art on stationery or in the gift market.

THERE HAS BEEN AN ART SUPPLY SANCTION IMPOSED AND DESIGNERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO POSSESS 3 ITEMS/TOOLS, WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?

My Japan Sakura SumoGrip mechanical pencil, paper and my iPad pro.

WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?

Watching people in cafes or on the train, study their poses and expressions is very inspiring to me. 

The turning of the seasons is something I’ve been observing much closer since we have a dog and I’m outside everyday – nature is very inspiring and the greatest artist to me.

WHO WOULD YOU SAY THE GREATEST DESIGNER IS?

Really hard to point out only one. There are so many fantastic designers out there and each of them is great for another reason. And if only I knew all the names…

When I'm long gone, I hope people remember me for this one super beautiful children’s book that every child and their parents want to read over and over every evening before going to sleep…
