About

Vicky Yorke is a surface pattern designer, illustrator and product developer working from her home studio in the Worcestershire countryside.

 

Vicky graduated in 2005 with a degree in Illustration BA (Hons) from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth and 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!

 

Vicky has extensive knowledge of the product development process and in 2012 decided to fulfil her dream of working for herself by setting up her own company, Vicky Yorke Designs. Her expertise has led her to design 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!

 

Products featuring Vicky’s designs have been sold in stores including Tesco, Sainsbury's, BHS, Debenhams, W H Smith, Lakeland, John Lewis, TK Maxx, Home Sense, Ryman, Staples, Amazon, Hobby Craft, Michael's (USA), plus independent retailers world wide.

Vicky brings a great amount of dedication and creative flair to every design. 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, different cultures and geometrics and is at her happiest with a pen in her hand or when editing her drawings into patterns on her computer!

 

Vicky is available for commissions and has art ready immediately for licensing. Please contact her agent, Jewel Branding & Licensing, to view more of her extensive licensing portfolio.
