Vicky Yorke is a surface pattern designer and illustrator working from her home studio in semi-rural Worcestershire, UK. She creates bright and playful designs that bring sophisticated fun to everyday living.




Vicky graduated in 2005 from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth with a degree in Illustration BA (Hons). For the next 7 years she 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 real passion for product development. In 2012 Vicky set up Vicky Yorke Designs, using her innovative and versatile design style to work with suppliers across their own label ranges. This proved so successful that in 2015 she expanded the business into art licensing enabling manufacturers and retailers to license existing designs from her large design portfolio straight onto their products under the growing brand of Vicky Yorke Designs. Her versatile designs have been used to decorate a huge number of products across many different product categories and in many different materials. Vicky’s products have been sold in some of the UK’s largest retailers, as well as all around the world.


The Designs

Vicky uses illustration and typography combined with striking colour pallets to create work that is decorative, bright and inviting. She is often inspired by the beautiful countryside that surrounds her home with collections including vibrant florals and animals, as well as patterns influenced by her travels around the UK and beyond! Every design is hand sketched in her loose and fanciful style before being digitally coloured to create designs that are full of grown up whimsy. She deliberately leaves in ‘wonky’ lines and broken textures believing it adds character and authenticity to her work. Vicky loves to mix and match and her portfolio is full of complimentary patterns that can be used on their own, or combined across a range of products to create a fresh and eclectic look. While refusing to be a slave to trends, Vicky always has one eye on what is happening in the retail world and reinterprets popular motifs of the moment in her own unique and vibrant way. Perfect for creating a warm and happy home, The Vicky Yorke Designs brand is available across a large selection of products, including:

• Stationery
• Homeware
• Gift
• Kitchenware
• Technology cases
• Personalised product

… with more product due to launch in 2018.
