Hello I'm Ginette, I do graphic design, art, illustration and surface pattern design.
Here on my blog you can see the pictures i've been making, stuff I've been up to and the inspiration I found in my current home Whistler, Canada.

I took part in the Make It In Design Summer School back in July. It's such a fun community of surface designers with really cool briefs to work on and I came up with loads of new designs and more inspiration than I know what to do with. This brief was called Jungle Luxe, I was looking at old Victorian glasshouses and vintage tropical plant illustrations from intrepid explorers. I had some fun drawing the whole thing in Photoshop and loved the colour palatte that came with the brief. This pattern was chosen as a winner for the Fashion Formula prize, very excited!

I designed a range of t-shirt for sale in The Nook of the North gift shop in Whistler village. I had lots of 1960s poster art inspiration, as well as inspiration from the beautiful coast mountains.

Here is the September page of my calendar of the British Isles, the leaves are just about to turn and the apples nearly ready for picking.

I entered the Prior Snow topsheet design contest, to create a design for skis and snowboards.
I drew this 1960s phsychedelic design in Photoshop and had a great time with these halftone brushes. Poster artists at the time broke all the rules of conventional design to reflect the counterculture scene, they combined commercial printing and fine art, and I’m inspired by the highly skilled designs they created without any of the modern technology that I rely on. I also loved working in this style to highlight the social changes and revolutions of the 1960s which are still really relevant.

Here's some more British summertime in the July and August pages of my calendar. The joy of the ice cream van at Glastonbury Tor and a cliff top walk on the Isle of Wight towards Sandown. Time to get reading about ley lines and Avalon and sacred geometry at Glastonbury Tor. I went on a really wonderful family trip to the Isle of Wight last summer so here's some holiday snaps of beach huts and fancy hotels and the like.
