About

It's all about the print, this is my passion.

HELLO

I'm Elvira and this is my story. I'm a born and bred Londoner through and through, never lived anywhere else.
I have always been passionate about prints. Having studied at The Royal College of art, leaving with an MA in printed textile design. As soon as I left I set up a print studio selling mine and other designers work worldwide. We regularly went on selling trips to New York and Europe selling to top designers and household names, as well as having an agent in Japan. I did this for many years until I had my daughter. I then had an agent represent me for a few years so that I could be at home and be a mum as well as a designer.

In January of 2016 I decided it was time to have a change of direction. Instead of selling my work to other designers I wanted to produce my own products to adorn my prints with and so the birth of my Etsy shop Elviravvdesigns. I really wanted to take my time and so I decided to start with one card 'Love card' still selling on my Etsy shop. I then began work on my 'Bird' collection. With this I have produced collections of bird cards, notecards, gift wrap, prints and now scarves.


INSPIRATION AND TECHNIQUE

I love colour, when I design the colours are very important to me. Though I usually start with a little pencil sketch, this is then scanned and re-drawn using adobe illustrator. This is where the colour comes in.
I'm really inspired by vintage posters with big blocks of colour, very bold and very graphic. I believe less is more.
