Welcome to the colourful world of Memo Illustration, midcentury styled prints and products!
Memo Illustration is a range of hand screen printed products designed and made by Helen Entwisle. Memo Illustration came about during Helen's degree course at Norwich School of Art and Design in 2006 when she first began screen printing retro styled writing paper sets, greetings cards and skateboard decks and sold them in local independant shops and galleries.
Helen graduated in 2007 with a first class degree in Visual Studies and has been sketching, collecting vintage homewares/clothing, drinking coffee and screen printing ever since.
The current Memo range includes limited edition screen prints, greetings cards, tote bags and a number of stationery products and homewares. Helen takes inspiration for her designs from her love of days gone by. She is a fiendish collector of mid-century novelty prints, old stationery and cowboy shirts.
Each product is designed and printed by hand in Helen's home studio in Grange over Sands, Cumbria. All paper materials used are locally sourced and 100% recycled, all inks used are water based, and the majority of clear packaging sleeves used are compostable. Every aspect of production is lovingly undertaken by hand!
