This week, we interviewed Lucie Cooke from Lucie Cooke Design. Based in Clitheroe in Northern England. We are quite fan of her cute and quirky designs. We want you to discover more about her work process:
- What is your studio name and location?
Lucie Cooke Design Ltd. Based in Clitheroe, Lancashire.
- Which design school did you study at (if you did)?
I did 1 year at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh studying BSc Hons Textile and Fashion Design Management before transferring to De Montfort Uni in Leicester to do BA Hons Contour Fashion, which specialises in lingerie, corsetry, swimwear and body fitting garments.
- When did you first start being interested in design?
Designing, creating and making has always been a big part of my life. We were always doing arty projects at home from being very little.
- Describe your style for us in 10 words?
I am still developing/discovering my true style as a surface pattern designer. I have been an in-house designer for quite a few years, where your job it to be adaptive to customers styles and needs, and that can make you easily lose track of what is actually you. I am taking up design challenges and online courses and experimenting with different methods and techniques. I would say my developing style is quirky, whimsical, naive, combining illustrations, painted florals and geometrics.
