Here’s something I completely forgot to share earlier. I was interviewed by Julie Gibbons the very talented lady behind Tractor Girl. You can read the whole interview here.

Tractor-Girl-Interview-Claudia-Owen

Thank you Julie for taking the time to feature me and my work on your blog. I’m so glad that you found me somewhere on the interwebs and decided to contact me. It’s great to know that people are actually looking at your website and that Google analytics is not just made up numbers!

I have been quite neglectful of my website lately (it might have something to do with my 11 month old baby…) So my posts are rather sporadic and seem to come in bunches and then quickly disappear for weeks on end. That’s my life as a mum now!

Just a quick post today to let you know that I’m a member of the wonderful Cultivate Art Collective. I’m very happy to be part of the collective because it will allow me to show my work at 2 shows (at least) early next year.

Claudia-Owen-is-now-part-of-Cultivate-Art-Collective

This is what my profile page looks like:

Claudia-Owen-Cultivate-Art-Collective-Profile-Page

I continue to be amazed by how much the collective has achieved in its short life and I know there’s so much more to come.

If you are an artist or designer and you’ve been dreaming of getting your work at shows such as Surtex or Printsource, you should definitely consider joining the Collective!

I know I’m a little late with this news (better late than never!) but now my designs with Keka Case are also available as snap on phone cases. These are my 10 designs I have with Keka Case:

iph5_black-and-white-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_blue-roses-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_butterflies-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_fern-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_gentle-whispers-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_happy-flower-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_pink-tears-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_sweet-flowers-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_tiger-stripes-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_wilderness-by-Claudia-Owen

 

 

Each of these designs is available for: iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, iPad 2/3/4 and iPad Mini.

Please take a look at all my designs with Keka Case.

Just some time ago I created a profile on Utelier. Just in case you’ve never heard about them, Utelier is a directory, an educational resource and a marketplace combined. It helps new and established designers and retailers find other designers, manufacturers, suppliers and experts worldwide whom they can work with.

This is my profile page:

Claudia-Owen-on-Utelier

I really like the look of the website, it’s nice and clean and it looks professional.

I don’t know how much visibility I get on Utelier (I have no analytics and so far I’ve had no new business proposals coming from here) but I guess it doesn’t hurt being everywhere!

If you would like to have a profile on Utelier you can sign up here.

I have more great news today. I’m now a Casetagram designer!

So far I’ve only uploaded 5 designs but I’ve got a lot more designs to include!

Right now I have 0 followers! I’m feeling rather lonely here :( if you have an account with Casetagram hope you can follow me and keep me company :)

 

Today I have some great news to share with you. You can now use my artwork on watches!

At the moment I have 9 different designs:

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 1

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 2

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 3

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 4

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 5

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 6

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 7

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 8

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 9

The great things about May28th watches is that you can customise your watch to look exactly how you want it. You can select the image you want, material, band, buckle and keeper and the watch arms.

If you would like to create your own watch please go to the May28th website. I hope you have lots of fun designing your watch!

Unfortunately there’s no direct link to my images so you will have to scroll through the other images to get to mine.

I’ve recently created a listing with Printsource New York on their Global Design Database. The database is for people in the textile and surface design industry.

This is what my profile page on Printsource looks like:

Printsource New York Claudia Owen Surface Designer 1

I selected 9 designs to display on my profile page, I don’t know if these designs are my best ones but I definitely enjoyed creating them! I find it hard to select just a few pieces of work because sometimes I just want to include all my work!

If you are looking to find a surface pattern designer you might want to consider using the database to find your next talented designer. Simply go to the Printsource website and click on Global Design Database and start your search. Easy!

Printsource New York is a textile and surface design trade show, which is held three times a year in New York City and the next show is on the 12th and 13th August 2014. How I wish I could go! Not only it would be amazing to go to Printsource but I would love to visit New York!

I have recently started selling my designs on cases for smartphones and tablets through The Kase. The Kase is a French company and they have an online store as well as retail stores in France, Germany and Singapore.

At the moment I have about 30 designs with them but I’ll slowly be adding more in the coming weeks. Each of these designs is available for a number of devices for Apple, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Nokia, Samsung and Sony.

This is what my profile page with The Kase looks like:

Claudia-Owen-profile-page-with-The-Kase

Once you select your favourite design then you can select the type of device. I absolutely love the look of this website! So clean and easy to navigate!

Claudia-Owen-designs-for-The-Kase

I have more good news to share with you today. I’m now a Keka Case designer! As the name suggests Keka Case is all about cases for your iPad and Kindle. The cases are similar to a hardback book cover and they actually use traditional book binding techniques to make the cases.

I currently have 10 designs and each of them is available for Kindle, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD 7”, Kindle Fire HD 8.9”, iPad Mini, iPad 1, iPad 2/3 and iPad 2/3 with keyboard.

The other great thing about Keka Case is that you can also personalise the case by adding your name or initials onto the case.

This is my profile page with Keka Case where you can see all the designs that I currently have available.

These are the 10 designs I have available at the moment:

What do you think?

The other exciting thing is that in the next few weeks you’ll be able to get these designs as snap-on fit cases for the Apple iPhone 4/4s/5, Samsung Galaxy Smartphone S3/S4, iPad 2/3/4 and the iPad Mini. But I’ll tell you more about that later :)

If you like any of my designs you can get them from Keka Case.

This post is long overdue now but I have some great news to share with you. One of my cards was featured in Moyo magazine issue 4.

Moyo-Feature-Venerate-card

This is the full-page spread

Moyo Feature Venerate card close up

Here’s the close up of my card (item number 5). I have this card on my Venerate Etsy shop.

Moyo is the world’s only online magazine dedicated to surface pattern design and it’s a great magazine for when you are looking for inspiration or useful information in the industry. And the best part of all is that it is completely free!

Here you can view the entire issue 4 of Moyo:

Today I have some great news to share. I’m now one of Greenvelope’s card designers!

Greenvelope-Home-Page

This is a screenshot of the Greenvelope website.

Greenvelope-designers

Here you can see my picture amongst the many other talented Greenvelope card designers.

Greenvelope-profile-pagefor-Claudia-Owen

This is my profile page which shows you all the designs that I have currently available.

To be completely honest, I’ve actually been with Greenvelope for a few months now but since I went through a couple of tough months due to my pregnancy, I didn’t get the chance to share the good news earlier.

Greenvelope is an electronic invitation service where they try to emulate the experience of traditional printed invitations.

If you like the idea of saving trees Greenvelope is the place to go plus they donate a significant percentage of every package purchased to Mountains to Sound which is a an environmentally conscious non-profit organization.

Right now I have 8 card designs available through Greenvelope but I’m working on new designs which should be up on the website in the next few days. Each card comes in a number of different colours so hopefully one of the colour combinations will suit your event just perfectly J

These are the designs that I have at the moment:

Tea-Shop-Save-the-Date-card-by-Claudia-Owen-for-Greenvelope

My work was recently featured in the latest edition of Us Folk magazine which is a Canberra based magazine that features the work of talented local creative people including musicians, designers, photographers and writers.

Below you can see the magazine cover and the spread using my work which is a pattern that I designed a while ago.

Us-Folk-magazine-feature-Claudia-Owen

The sad thing is, this is also their last issue as they have decided to call it a day L It’s a little sad since in Canberra there aren’t many outlets for creatives to spread the love for their craft and we have just lost another avenue.

These designs are some of my latest addition to my Envelop shop. I actually gave this same set to one of my sisters for Christmas. I really hope she’s enjoying it :)

Blooming-Flowers-by-Claudia-Owen-for-Envelop

They are all printed on 100% cotton and shipping is only $1 worldwide!

To give you some idea of how big they are here are the sizes for each of these items:

Spoonflower-Wrapping-paper-by-Claudia-Owen---Sweet-Heart

Spoonflower-Wrapping-paper-by-Claudia-Owen---Sweet-Heart3

Spoonflower-Wrapping-paper-by-Claudia-Owen---Sweet-Heart2

The thickness and texture of the wrapping paper is fantastic and because the paper is quite thick you could use it for craft projects as well.

Unfortunately, Spoonflower is no longer printing wrapping paper but I’m hopeful that if enough of us get together and beg them to make it a regular feature of the site they will start to print wrapping paper again soon!

You can get this design from my Spoonflower shop.

I recently joined Pingg.com which is an online invitation and event planning website.  Right now I have around 20 card and invite designs and I’m slowly adding more.

Pingg-designers-2012

Here you can see my picture alongside other Pingg designers.

Happy-birthday-card-by-Claudia-Owen-for-Pingg

I-love-you-card-by-Claudia-Owen-for-Pingg

Thanks-card-by-Claudia-Owen-for-Pingg

The great thing about Pingg is that you can customise the card to suit your needs. Depending on the design you choose, you can change the text or add your own image.

You can also send invitations with RSVP’s, send e-cards or save-the-date and even sell tickets to an event!

In the next few weeks I’ll be organizing my sister’s baby shower and I’m definitely going to do it through Pingg.

These are some the designs I have right now:

Come take a look Pingg.com

I’ve been having lots of fun creating a bunch of wrapping paper designs and these are some of them:

Wrapping-papers-by-Claudia-Owen

It looks like Spoonflower will only be making wrapping paper for a limited time only (until the 20th of December 2012) so if you like any of these designs or if you like any other designs on the Spoonflower website, get them now before it’s too late! I’m really hoping, like I’m sure everyone else is, that Spoonflower will continue to make wrapping paper available all year round.

If you like these designs you can get them from my Spoonflower shop.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Spoonflower is no longer printing wrapping paper but I’m hopeful that if enough of us get together and beg them to make it a regular feature of the site they will start to print wrapping paper again soon!

I’m slowly filling up my Spoonflower shop with new designs that are available as fabric, wallpaper and wall decals. These are some of my designs:

Claudia-Owen-Spoonflower-shop

If you like the design but the colour is not exactly what you were looking for, let me know so I can add one in the colours that you need.

Please visit my Spoonflower shop.

I’ve set myself a goal to add a new design to my Society6 shop once a week to keep the shop looking new. Let’s see if I can stick to it now!

This is one of the designs that I have added recently. What do you think?

This design comes as a framed art print, stretched canvas, card, iPhone case, iPhone and iPod skin, laptop and iPad skin, tote bag, hoodie and t-shirt.

Please visit my Society6 shop for more information.

A few days ago I got a lovely package from Envelop. I received my brand new apron and oven mittens (they are both my designs). I decided to retire my old apron and mittens and replace them with this lovely pair :) I’m hoping the apron and gloves will help me enjoy cooking a little more…

I love Envelop and the quality of their products is outstanding.

You can also like the Envelop.eu Facebook page.

If you like this apron and glove you can get it from here.

This is one of my latest designs that I recently added to my Society6 shop.

Yellow is probably one of my favourite colours. I have yellow shoes, tops, dresses and all kinds of yellow things, and as you might have noticed my blog and website and even my logo for that matter, have some yellow too. So to honour my yellow obsession I bring you this design (I’m sure I’m not the only one crazy about yellow).

This design comes as a framed art print, stretched canvas, card, iPhone case, iPhone and iPod skin, laptop and iPad skin, hoodie and t-shirt.

Please visit my Society6 shop for more information.

I'm a surface pattern designer and I love to create patterns for a variety of applications such as wallpapers, fabrics, rugs, stationery and home wares. In here you will find a small sample of my work.
