Hello and welcome to my website
My name is Christine Gibson and I’m a Surface Pattern Designer living in Northamptonshire.
I have always had a love of creating things. For most of my career I worked in office administration, however, I longed to work in the creative industry. In 2007 I enrolled on an Interior Design course and four years later, graduated with a First Class Honours degree.
During my time at University I enjoyed experimenting with colour, patterns and graphics. I later began exploring other creative avenues including arts and crafts, screen printing and finally pattern design. In pattern design I found something that met all my creative needs and enabled me to use my established skills in sketching, graphic and interior design.
My studio is a haven where I love creating hand drawn designs. Once I have an idea for a collection or a print, I reproduce the hand drawn designs into digital images, creating distinctive and original patterns. My style is contemporary and I love using vibrant colours and designing joyful, whimsical patterns.
I draw my inspiration from the natural world, preferring to experiment with organic shapes, floral patterns, textures and geometric designs. A selection of my work can be found on my ‘Collections’ page.
In addition to creating designs for my own products, I am constantly on the lookout for Freelance projects or opportunities to Licence my designs. If this is something you think I can help you with, then please feel free to get in touch. You can reach me using the contact form found on my ‘Contact’ page.
