Prints charming


Meet two print designers who turn walls from drab to fab



‘I create beautiful quality giclée prints for the home. I designed some to sell on Etsy as an experiment when I was furloughed from my job as creative lead for a marketing agency… and sold over 5,000 in the first few months! Since then, I’ve had pop-ups in John Lewis stores and collaborat­ed with Look Fantastic to design one of their beauty boxes. Now Eleanor Isobelle Art is my business and my life. Sustainabi­lity’s important to me so I use giclée printing because the colours last. I’m inspired by almost everything – travel, restaurant­s, everyday objects and scenes. My new Fast Food designs feature cultural icons like a Mcdonald’s Happy Meal box and milkshake cup.’




‘My background is in graphic design, and several years ago I launched and ran a toy gift brand, Petit Collage. But wall art was my first love, so, last October, I started Roomytown. I create fine art prints for the family home, based on both modern graphic designs as well as vintage finds from libraries and antique bookstores, that we restore and update. At first, I assumed I was designing mainly for children’s spaces, but it became clear adults were buying prints for themselves particular­ly when Liberty started stocking them – which was fantastic. I’d love to expand the brand globally. We went to a trade show in New York, recently, and the positive reactions we had to our prints made me so happy.’
