Design of the Day
This young designer has stolen my heart with her brightly coloured and patterned eco designs. She gives her designs life, re-modernsises retro and promotes ethical and green living – a ten out of ten from me!
After graduating from Loughborough University in 2008 with a 1st in Textile Design, British designer Zoe Murphy was selected for The New Designers Showcase in Islington, where she was shortlisted for Designer of the Year Award and has since attracted a huge amount of attention.
Zoe’s inspiration comes from the seaside imagery of her home town Margate, which she uses to create prints which she layers on to used products – another great example of up-cycling! Her designs are sold directly to clients, galleries and stores so you can get your own quirky piece quite easily. I’ve already got my order in!
