Skantlyn design: Surface design and Illustration


Skantlyn design is a Cornish-based surface and print design studio run by Liz May, Liz has a varied client base from UK to China.


Liz specialises in surface patterns and illustrations and mixes hand drawn illustrations in a free doodle style, to a more vector based approach. Liz's designs are created for all surfaces ranging from apparel, homeware, packaging and stationery. As well as running Skantlyn, Liz is also a graphic designer working under the name designthoughts, which was set up in 2009 after she graduated Falmouth University.


Liz comes from an artistic background, and has loved art from a young age, so loves combining her illustrative style with her graphic knowledge to create designs under her own name as well as licencing her designs through Patternbank


As well designing unique and colourful range of designs, Liz is also available for freelance design work, collaboration and commissions. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more, about how she can help you with your project.
