Jocelyn Proust


Admiring the patterns of Australian-based artist Jocelyn Proust.  Her style influenced by Marimekko utilizes clean, bold graphics and bright striking colors.  Her process begins with working in her sketchbook with pen or watercolour or cut paper. She then transforms her work digitally into patterns and designs. 

More of her work can be viewed on her website and Instagram.  A few of her products are sold in her Etsy shop.

Alexandra Snowdon


Loving the work of UK-based artist Alexandra Snowdon.  She is a self- employed illustrator and hand lettering artist, working on commissions from a range of worldwide clients. On Design Juices she says this about her work:

‘The lettering and illustrations in my prints are all created by hand, starting off as tiny pencil doodles in my sketchbook. I complete the finished pieces using ink (if I want the design to be bold and striking) or pencil (for a softer look). The designs are then either transferred to a silkscreen for hand printing or output on my giclée printer using fade resistant, archival inks. I try to keep computer usage to a minimum, using it mainly as a tool to clean up and rescale my artwork. I try not to make it look too ‘perfect’ though, I love seeing evidence of the human touch and all it’s quirks and imperfections.’

You can find the artist on her website, Instagram and Behance.  You can purchase her prints and cards in her Etsy shops.

Cristian Marianciuc

We’ve folded paper cranes before but our attempts were never quite as exquisite as these creations from Romanian-based artist Cristian Marianciuc.  He has always had an interest in art but has never had any formal training.  He challenged himself by creating one crane a day for a year and loved the project so much his collection has grown to over 1000. In Arctic Paper he says this about his his passion:

“To me, origami is very therapeutic and a way to find balance in life. It is a way to silence some voices and make others louder. It is about not doing things on autopilot, but to be involved, in the present.”

You can follow the artist and see more of his work on Instagram and Facebook.  Some of his creations can be purchased in his Etsy shop.
