I’m Carys Mula, a surface designer from Wales in the UK. I specialise in repeat patterns and I’m working on creating more stand-alone illustrations and hand-lettering.
I work mostly in vector, and usually start designs by drawing motifs on paper or on my tablet. This means my designs are flat and graphic but often retain a hand-drawn line.
As a teenager I dreamed of being a fashion designer but ended up pursuing a career in the nonprofit sector. My love of design history was re-kindled at university, where I had the opportunity to write essays about topics like Space Age advertising, American Pop art, the Arts and Crafts movement and Disney parks! I taught myself to use Adobe Illustrator and now there’s no stopping me!
When I’m not designing, I’m usually out for a walk, watching something incredibly geeky, or planning a trip!
