We are officially a day away from June and I still feel like it was yesterday I was contacting the designers to ask them if they wanted to participate in my 2013 Designer Calendar project. This month's fresh and summery design was created by Jennie Whitman, the designer behind JLWIllustration. Hurry! Print it out now and start writing your to-dos on this beautiful calendar.
Jennie Whitham is the name and face behind JLWIllustration. With a 2.1 Degree in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design from Leeds College of Art in 2010, Jennie has spent several years working on her portfolio collections. Jennie has recently Graduated from The Art and Business of Surface Pattern course, created by Beth Nicholls and Rachael Taylor. The course has allowed Jennie to expand her portfolio as well as push the boundaries of Surface Pattern, and allowed her further develop her CAD skills.
With a passion for geometric shapes and florals, Jennie often combines the two, with bright and inviting colours to create designs that will (hopefully) make you smile. Jennie has work to be published in a Surface Pattern book, entitled, PatternBase, based around the popular blog with the same name. The book is due for release in 2013. Jennie is currently looking for Freelance and Licensing opportunities, to work around her family lifestyle.
Her quirky detail:
"I began my Degree at Leeds art with a 6 month old Daughter, and graduated 4 years later with 3 children by my side."
Her favourite Designer:
"I've never hidden the fact that Rachael Taylor is an inspiration to me. I remember being at University and being in awe of her success. I think living in the same city is a big factor, and I would LOVE to meet with her one day."
