Jessica Hogarth’s work is primarily focused on illustration and how her quirky prints and patterns can be applied to a variety of products. After graduating with a first class honours degree in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design in June 2010, Jessica worked as an in-studio designer for a highly commercial interiors company. She has since left to pursue a dream to one day launch her own range of products, and her business ‘Jessica Hogarth Designs’ will officially launch at the British Craft Trade Fair in April next year. Jessica is currently busy developing a collection of products that utilise both digital and hand printed methods. The product range currently includes greetings cards and postcards, ceramic mugs and notebooks.
Jessica loves to travel, and finds new and interesting places to be the greatest influence on her work. Her rural upbringing on the North East Coast has had a clear influence on her coastal collection of designs. Equally, an obvious passion for Paris influenced a lot of the work produced whilst at college; a place Jessica is continuing to gain inspiration from for freelance work.
Jessica will be exhibiting at Designer’s Marketplace for the first time at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Sat the 3rd December. Her work is also available to buy via Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jessicahogarth?ref=pr_shop Retro Roost: http://www.retroroost.co.uk/brands/Jessica-Hogarth-Designs.html and through her own website where you can also check out her blog and portfolio: http://www.jessicahogarth.com/
