Emerging Design Talent: Lizzie Rose Hughes

Today I am introducing new and emerging design talent which has become a regular addition to Creative Sketchbook. Lizzie Rose Hughes' country life inspired designs instantly grabbed my attention when she exhibited at New Designers 2012. Lizzie has recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a First Class Ba (Hons) in Textile Design.

As you know I am a lover of our feathered friends and Lizzie's delicate hummingbirds are rather intriguing. "The designs i produce focus on keeping a fluidity throughout, to encourage the viewer to follow the lines of the design and ultimately recreate the natural environment of the birds and foliage." The mutual botanical colour palette used throughout this collection beautifully compliments the fine detailed illustrations. "I take my inspiration from 19th Century Design, I focus on creating a contemporary take on this historical style of design. "

Lizzie's designs are created using a combination of digitally and hand-drawn motifs which are brought together using computer aided design, retaining the hand drawn quality to the work which Lizzie feels is particularly important.
