Purple Grape’s New In-House Illustrator

10 Jun

A very busy week for us all last week in the office, the sunshine made it all worth it though, let’s hope it keeps up for this week as well! Fingers crossed!

One of the most important pieces of information following on from last week is that our very own Rebecca Gibson has now almost finished her university degree. Cecilia, Kate and I went to her end of year show the week before last to see her work, and also to look at the work of her classmates. We wandered around with a lovely chilled glass of wine, staring in amazement at the imagination of the pieces of work. Of course we thought Becca’s was the best by far! Her illustrations were so detailed and beautiful and they carefully worked with her dissertation, which I was lucky enough to read. All about how William Morris and Arthur Liberty influenced the fashion world and how they still do today.

Here are a few samples of her work – I tried to get Becca in the picture but she wasn’t having any of it!


So now Purple Grape has an in-house illustrator!! Becca has already been helping Emily with a number of different projects all producing fantastic results which the clients have been thrilled with.  We can’t wait to see what else she produces in the future!!
