I enjoy beautifully designed products and I care about the environment.
I believe today we can have both and my aim is to do just that.
Hi, I'm Sophie and I run West Plum Studio, a colourful design studio, with an eco-friendly ethos, based in York. I produce contemporary geometric designs and hand lettering inspired by the world around me.
I come from a creative family. Ever since I was a little girl I've been making. I didn't even realise at the time that could be a career option for me.
As life moved on I found I had less and less time to be creative and decided I actually wanted to make this more of a focus for me. I enrolled in and completed all four modules of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design run by the fantastic Make it in Design team. This opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities and I realised I could do what I loved every day!
I am inspired by the patterns and textures that surround me in everyday life. Here are a selection of my favourites.
