Creative Quarters...Megan Carter

The next designer to be featured in Creative Quarters is Megan Carter.

Megan Carter is a UK based surface pattern designer and has been working as a greetings card designer for the best part of twenty years.
She graduated from Staffordshire University with a degree in Surface Pattern Design and went straight on to work for Hallmark for 5 years, designing greetings cards and accessories for Marks and Spencer’s.
Megan then went on to work for UK Greetings where she has worked up until the present day. She has worked on a part time basis over this last 10 years since having a young family to look after.
In 2016 Megan took the decision to broaden her horizons and explore new areas to apply her design work to.  
She has always loved the thought of seeing her patterns on fabric and wallpaper. She loves making patterns that are bold, beautiful and colourful, striking to the eye with a twist of the vintage attached to their contemporary style.
She takes inspiration from nature, particularly flowers, Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts movement and mid century design.
She also loves the patterns of Marimekko, past and present.
She has had the recent pleasure of becoming part of the Hansen Print and Textiles group of designers. Represented by Nerida Hansen, she will be having her first collection of designs showcased at Surtex in New York this spring!
