Surface Designer and Illustrator.
Rose Darling is a Cornish-based surface and print designer, with a varied client base spanning the UK, Europe, Americas and Australia.
Specialising in surface patterns her broad print style enables her to create designs that span across all apparel divisions, homeware, packaging and stationery. Her work extends to illustration, graphics and creative design and can range from icons for local companies to collaborations designing large-scale illustrations for organisations such as the NHS.
Rose’s work is driven by these creative challenges to either create new and innovative prints or to mould into her clients’ needs to fit within their own brand image of their company.
In 2012, Rose set up her freelance company and moved back to Cornwall after almost a decade of designing and working on products for sports apparel, organic clothing design and the trend forecast industry.
Living in Cornwall is a great influence for Rose’s work. As a huge fan of the outdoors, Rose’s evocative designs blend beautiful landscapes, challenging and calm seas and the general lifestyle in the South West across a range of mixed media.
Coming from an artistic family, including watercolour artists, graphic designers and seamstresses, design has always been integrated into Rose’s everyday life. She is available for freelance design work, collaboration and commissions within a variety of creative disciplines, so please get in touch if you like to work with her on a project.
