I’m introducing my new website, www.philmardendesign.com, featuring a gallery of my illustrations, current and vintage, and, for the first time, I’m also introducing a set of design collections that are available for licensing by manufacturers. For each collection, I’ve mocked up several design concepts to give you an idea of how the designs might be applied. After a couple of years designing and manufacturing pillows, bags and tea towels, I’ve realized that my real passion is in the designing, not so much the making. P’illoporto, my manufacturing wing, will continue on a small, boutique-y scale for now. There is some overlap in the designs between P’illoporto and the new design collections, but, for the most part, they’re distinct.
Have a look and let me know what you think!
