I may be a little late to the party sharing these lovely greeting cards and melamine plates, but better late than never, right? They are the work of Lucy King, a talented Melbourne-based print designer and illustrator with a strong background in visual arts. Lucy specialises in surface pattern design and her love of colour, pattern and detail has attracted a diverse portfolio of local and international clients including Wedgwood, Target, Marks & Spencer and Bed Bath n' Table. In fact, prior to setting up her own business in 2000, Lucy worked in England for Wedgwood as a tableware pattern designer. These days, Lucy is focused on developing her own growing range of illustrated products alongside her client work.
I've been a follower of Lucy's work (and her blog) since moving to Melbourne, and it's fantastic to see Lucy doing so well and expanding her own range. I really love Lucy's tea-themed melamine plates and greeting cards, which feature hand-painted vintage teacups and yummy treats. Other themes in Lucy's range include colourful florals and polka dots.
If you'd like to see more of Lucy's work, check out her portfolio and online shop. Lucy also has a great blog and an Etsy shop selling handmade jewellery made from vintage china plates. And if you're feeling a little nosy, check out Lucy's home tour on The Design Files, which is, as you'd expect, packed full of gorgeous retro wares (and a very impressive succulent garden)!
That's all from me for this week. Sorry for the lack of posts; sometimes life just gets in the way! Have a lovely weekend and see you back here next week x
