Isobel Greathead

surface pattern designer based in Birmingham

I am a print and surface pattern designer, having graduated from Birmingham City University in 2020. My love for design is fuelled by historical and cultural research, often celebrating and conveying British heritage in contemporary ways. Being surrounded by beautiful things and inspiring places drives my practice, especially when questioning why something inspires me. 

Photography forms a strong part of my skill set and shooting on both film and digital cameras produces an exciting range of outcomes to inspire my projects. My designing process is often a balance between hand and digitally rendered work, testing and questioning traditional and contemporary together.
