Self Portrait2020

Rosie Parkinson Designs:
Surface Pattern, Graphic and Illustrative Design, since 2009.
Based in Colchester, Essex UK but willing to travel.

I am a Freelance Surface Pattern / Print Designer & Illustrator, with over 10 years experience.

I have created designs for clients such as The East of England Co-op, Eco Chic, Sainsburys, Voo Print, Clinton Cards, UK Greetings and many others.

A full list is available on my CV.


I have experience in designing for: Phone & Tablet Cases, Bags, Bottles, Cups, Luggage, Lampshades, Leather, Walking Sticks, Gift Wrap, Cards, Gift Bags & Boxes, Stationary, Home & Tableware, Bedding, Apparel as well as Product Packaging, Logos, Labels and general Graphic Design.

I would love to work on wallpaper as well!

I take pride in offering my own twist on popular styles - in short, making great trend inspired work that fits with the theme, but stands out from the crowd.

I can work from a strict brief, or create from my own initiative. The majority of my work comes from ideas I form on a daily basis.

I can design in specific repeat sizes or however the client desires. I have experience in creating and using templates.

I work quickly, but I am very thorough.
I am equally happy to design for both small & large businesses and I am happy to cater my prices accordingly.

I sell my designs on a outright artwork sale or lease basis.
I have some premium and standard license designs available on Patternbank.

If you would like to represent or license me, offer commissions or freelance work please get in touch.
