Welcome to George Prints Design Studio. Our new website is up and running, and with that, a blog! So to start off... an introduction to who we are, what we do, and a little bit about myself, Georgia, founder of the studio.
Who We Are and What We Do
We are a new print design studio, creating unique and bespoke prints for brands within the fashion, interiors and retail industries. I started the studio with a view to doing things a little bit differently here, and I'm absolutely loving doing it! I have a fab team of artists and designers of varying disciplines, and we work together to create fabulous prints that are perfect for each client.
Focusing 100% on you, the client, we design artwork that we know your customer will buy. If you create and sell products of any kind, we can design a beautiful pattern to elevate your product. We also provide 24-hour CAD and art-working services, to support busy design teams.
The Designer Behind the Studio
I’m Georgia, founder of the studio- I'm a printed textiles designer and fashion lecturer. I founded the studio after years of working as an in-house print designer, and then as a freelancer. I have worked on projects and prints for companies including ASOS, Markus Lupfer, Jonathan Saunders, and Next, as well as designing whole collections for womenswear wholesaler, Adini.
I also lecture at London fashion colleges- teaching CAD (Photoshop and inDesign) skills to fashion students. I absolutely love helping others to develop their skills.
I love riding my bike around London, and also ballet dancing and running. Every Monday evening you can find me at the local athletics track with my running club, running in circles for fun...! I’ve always been very active, and I actually worked in the cycle industry for years whilst I was at art school.
Whats the Story behind George Prints Design Studio?
I officially started George Prints Design Studio in August 2020, as a natural progression from my successful freelance design business. As a freelance designer; I loved working with my clients, and the variety of projects I got to work on, but often found I was missing being part of a creative team... so I decided to create one!
Starting a new business in the middle of a pandemic and recession may have seemed (very) odd to some, but if there is one thing that was affirmed by COVID-19 and lockdowns, it was the value of human contact and teamwork. I have always been determined to run a business where teamwork and collective creativity is at the core, and COVID-19 really gave me the determination to do so.
Due to the current situation, we are currently running as a sort of "virtual" studio, with all designers working remotely. I'm currently in the process of fixing up and moving into a new studio premises in South London, so fingers crossed for 2021 and hoping we'll all be able to work together more easily once again.
What Makes us Different from other Design Studios?
Our values: people first. People including our clients, and our designers.
Our Clients: All of our prints are tailor made for each client, meaning that you don’t have to sit for hours looking at print artwork only to settle on something that isn’t quite right. I have been an in-house designer, and understand what it's like searching for prints from studios. We work in a different way, saving you time and providing a print that is perfect for your brand. As our prints are designed-to-order, our prints come in repeat if needed and with any adjustments and requests that you require.
Our Designers: Because our prints are designed-on-demand, our freelance designers are paid fairly for each hour that they work. This, sadly, is quite unusual in the industry, and something that has been very important to me in setting up the Studio.
This way of working means that our artwork is of a beautiful quality. For most briefs, I select several designers to work together on any one artwork…more heads are always better than one! We can produce artwork that is beautiful. unique and unlike anything else on the market.
If you'd like to know any more about the studio and would like some info on pricing and products, please contact me. I'm always happy to help in any way that I can!
