Hi, I’m Eleanor, an Illustrator and designer, working in Bristol. I work full time on my design business, and in my spare time i'm a team captain for the Bristol Etsy Team. I also work in the Bristol shop Paper Plane where you can find a range of my designs.
I offer a range of freelance design services, such as print design, logo design, wedding stationery and brand identity. I started Little Paisley Designs in late 2014 after graduating from Winchester School of Art with a degree in printed textiles. I work from home in my sunny attic studio, helped by my 3 naughty cats and fueled by cups of tea.
Alongside freelance design work I create handmade items featuring my prints under the brand name Little Paisley Designs. Designs feature quirky handpainted illustrations of British Wildlife, Flora & Fauna. Each product starts life as a handpainted illustration. Working in predominantly watercolours and gouache paints, artwork is then scanned in and assembled. All items are either handmade in my home studio, or printed using British companies, then packaged and assembled by hand. My work is inspired by nature and reference traditional nature illustrations, with whimsical twist.
Little Paisley Designs was founded in late 2014 as a complimentary creative outlet to commercial design work, and an excuse to make beautiful products for myself! Following a degree in print design, I realised the handmade nature of the design industry was where my interest lay, and Little Paisley Designs was born. Little Paisley Designs products are whimsical and colourful, with a playful nod to the traditional. Our products will brighten up your home or outfit!
I am available for freelance commissions and design work of all sizes & styles.
