What Fuels the Passion
Vicky Yorke is a British surface pattern designer, illustrator and product developer who works from her home studio in the Worcestershire countryside. She is obsessed with colour and pattern and has been applying this passion to create beautiful products for over a decade. After graduating in 2005 with a degree in Illustration BA (Hons) from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth, Vicky went to work in house for a variety of stationery and homeware retail suppliers where she learnt about creating graphics and surface pattern designs and developed a passion for product!
Living the Dream
Her background with suppliers means that Vicky has an all round knowledge of the product development process and an innate commercial awareness. In 2012 she decided to fulfil her dream to work for herself by setting up Vicky Yorke Designs, which has led to her designing for a huge array of different products for homeware / kitchenware, stationery, gift, bags and craft across many substrates from ceramics to textiles, plastics to woods and everything in between! Vickys designs have travelled the globe being exhibited at several major international trade fairs and products featuring Vicky’s designs have been sold in many UK high street stores, as well as independent retailers world wide.
Vicky brings a great amount of dedication and creative flair to every design. Her design style is bold and British, but with cultural influences from around the world to create a uniquely blended look. Using striking colour pallets her work is decorative and is sometimes even a little whimsical, but it is always on trend and suitable across many product applications! She loves to create designs inspired by nature and geometrics and is at her happiest with a pen in her hand or when editing her drawings into patterns on her computer!
