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.

Honey Bunny

Base is a Japanese ecommerce platform that allows users to set up a shop under their own domain name.  It is there that we found this shop, Honey Bunny, that focuses mainly on smart phone covers.  Loved the owner- created graphics so we thought we’d share.

Clairice Gifford

Clairice Gifford is a designer and illustrator based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her focus is in graphic design, surface pattern, lettering and illustration. Her work is influenced by her Swedish heritage, bright colors, travel and typography. In a Spoonflower blog she writes this about her work:

“I always start my designs with sketches in my notebook, but since I’m a graphic designer, most things eventually end up on the computer.”

The artist can be found on her website, Instagram, Behance and Dribble. She has an Etsy shop, Nifty Swank but she is currently on a short hiatus.
