ABOUT JESSICA STUART-CRUMP
THOUGHTFUL DESIGN FOR ALL KINDS OF SURFACES.
I am a Vancouver based Surface + Textile Designer who creates patterns and illustrations for clients in the fashion, sportswear, and housewares industries. For the past 14 years, I have worked with a variety of local and international clients illustrating surfaces. My patterns are intricately illustrated with various mediums, such as, inked hand drawings, watercolour paintings, photography, and digital manipulations. I love finding inspiration traveling the world visiting textile markets, book stores, craft fairs and exploring all of natures intricacies.
I studied Design at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, as well as a year abroad at the University of Sydney in Australia. After I graduated I went on to work as an Apparel Graphic Designer for Westbeach (Snowboarding Outerwear) and Aritzia. While working in-house for these two companies, I learnt all about developing repeating artwork for fashion, trend and colour forecasting, strike-off approvals, and working with manufacturers from the beginning of the design process through to product hitting the sales floor.
Being inspired by the world around us, I found my way to ACE Camps Travel Company. I work with the team as a Trip Designer developing programming for their global creative workshops, with a particular focus on textiles from every corner of the globe. From Batik printing in Swaziland, to Silk Weaving in Laos to Patterns in Portugal and Shibori in Japan - we have some great adventures planned. Come with us! acecampstravel.com
