Creative Quarters...Emma Rees | Dainty Forest

The next designer to be featured in Creative Quarters is Emma Rees aka Dainty Forest.

Emma Rees, is the illustrator and designer behind Dainty Forest.
She gained her BA and MA in Visual Communication and shortly after graduating, she began her design career in London working for a prestigious gift ware company, creating patterns, packaging and products and travelling to India to source fabrics and create new products. 

After several years of living in the big smoke, Emma moved to the midlands to pursue her freelance career, designing for a number of high street brands from a tiny but lovely studio in an old mill in Derbyshire.
She went on to design for small businesses and realised this is where her true passion lay. 

In June 2018, Dainty forest launched with a small collection of prints and Emma secured her first stockist, Handmade Nottingham and continued to grow her collection.
Dainty Forest has recently celebrated its first birthday and now includes a wider range of prints, greetings cards, illustrated flashcards for little ones, mirrors and a tote bag!
The range is stocked in a number of number of independent boutiques across the uk and several online marketplaces.
With a strong focus on typographic elements and a delicate colour scheme, Dainty Forest aims to have a little something that everyone can enjoy. 

Emma splits her time between designing for lovely small businesses , growing Dainty Forest and running after her toddler.
She loves to help other small businesses and is available for commissions and collaborations.

Colour crush...

A perfect palette for the start of autumn.
Terracotta just seems to work in any combination at the moment doesn't it, it can do no wrong!
I'm loving it with these beautiful blue tones...
