Niamh Smith is a designer based in London. I first came across her work when browsing through my Print and Pattern book. What drew me to her work was the patterns she creates around the letters. She uses small marks, lines and shapes to create this amazing typography. Mark making is something I love experimenting with but I have never seen it used in this way before.
She creates her patterns on Photoshop using a drawing tablet so she can get more control and detail.
Her work has really got me thinking about creating my own shapes from smaller drawings, marks, gestures or lines and this is definitely something I would like to use to inform my practice.
