Giving up advertising for a life less ordinary
Having spent many years in the advertising industry in Brighton and London, Susan moved to Bristol in 2007 and set up her design studio creating typographical giftware.
Susan fuses screenprinting, digital illustration and hand-drawn ink drawings with experimental typefaces to create her typographical prints and tea towels. Her work is greatly influenced by the years spent in the design and advertising industry, each piece having been conceived with a target audience and commercial appeal in mind.
Keeping up with current trends is paramount - Susan’s primary aim is to produce affordable and fashionable art for contemporary homes. Her passion for graphic design is evident - typography, iconography, bold swathes of colour and a strong structural layout are consistently the focus of her prints.
Susan cites war-time revolutionary posters, vintage book illustrations and the Bauhaus movement as her inspiration, elements of which you can see in her work.
