All about Dippy egg:
Colouring in… What can I say?
I’ve never wanted to do anything else with my life, & here I am, doing it for a living.
I am a girl who maintains there's nothing quite like the smell of a new box of pencils & I'm never happier than when I have a sketchbook in my hands.
Drawing is my first & most passionate love. I always have a few sketch books on the go & I'm a hopeless hoarder when it comes to beautifully crafted design & typography, be it in the form of tickets, packaging, invitations, beer mats etc, anything which inspires me to design.
At Dippy egg, it’s not just sitting about, colouring in & eating cake all day. I’ll give you a list of the other things that I create…
Brand identities, marketing literature, promotional materials, websites, design for print, book design, illustration commissions, invitations, greetings cards (both handmade & printed), hand-painted canvases & photography.
Anyway, talking about myself isn’t really my favourite thing to do, so I thought I’d let the words of my primary school teachers do it for me.
Personally, I think Mrs.Crook & the others should’ve left me to it, as once the abacuses & Bunsen burners etc were packed away, I went on to do a btec diploma in scribbling & doodling & then a graphic design & illustration degree at Bath Spa University. I then moved back to my home town of Cardiff and worked as a graphic designer for a few years before taking the leap in 2008 to go it alone as my own boss & setting up Dippy egg!
Whatever they say, I’ve never needed to use an equation since…
I was always an enthusiastic painter!
