Alumni success: Dotty Wren

january 15, 2014

DOTTY-WREN-STUDIO_NEW-YEAR_550PXWe are always so proud to be able to share success stories from our ABSPD Alumni & we we’re so happy to hear that Susan Driscoll & Wendy Kendall (from our first ever round of ABSPD modules!) have helped form the gorgeous Dotty Wren Studio. Having joined forces with two other talented designers Dawn Machell & Lizzie Mackay, they have a shared vision to supply fabulous artwork to the design industry including surface pattern & illustration! All four passionate designers have many years successful design experience ranging from fashion to stationery & will soon be exhibiting at Surtex in New York this year! The studio is available for licensing opportunities & commissions as are the ladies as individual designers.

Below is a selection of wonderful pattern & illustration from the studio & from each of the four designers. Make sure to check our their beautiful website, keep up to date on their blog or follow them on Facebook.
