a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Jessica Hogarth's use of bold colour combined with playful illustrations make for a collection of quirky yet sophisticated designs.
The prints and patterns typically depict images of daily life, places Jessica has visited or feature strong influences from Robin Hoods Bay and the Yorkshire coast in England.
As well as designing for her own label, Jessica works on collaborations and commissions for a variety of companies and individuals to produce a wide range of print and product designs.
This is a really different take on the urban city. Hogarth has added charm and whimsy to her modern bustling metropolis. What contemporary city is complete without scooters and tweeters? The main print cityscape is supported by a more abstract and linear city building print. The tossed scooters and scattered birds add to the metropolitan feel. A graphic zigzag stripe and two graphic zigzag stripes and two supporting tonals round out the group.
Jessica Hogarth Designs
Jessica Hogarth lives in North Yorkshire and attended Leeds College of Art to study Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design. Jessica graduated in June 2010 with a first class honours degree and immediately exhibited at the New Designers Exhibition in London, where she was headhunted for a design role with a Manchester based company. In May 2011 Jessica left this position and returned to her homeland in North Yorkshire to start Jessica Hogarth Designs. Jessica has sold designs for both fashion and interiors fabrics. American quilting company P&B textiles approached Jessica to develop a city inspired collection entitled ‘VeloCity’ which is being distributed internationally.
