So who are Skantlyn?


Launched in 2017 by Liz May, Skantlyn combines hand drawn illustrations, surface patterns, doodles and lots of colour for the home and gifts sector. As well as designing for bespoke commissions for weddings, packaging and combining with graphic design.


Skantlyn means 'Pattern' in Cornish. Liz lives in Cornwall and always has so the name fitted really well.


All of Liz's illustrations are initially drawn by hand either using pen, pencil or graphic tablet, before finishing the design as a repeat pattern or applied graphic on the computer which is designed in her studio in Cornwall.


Liz likes to produce all of her products in the UK to not only support British businesses but to keep the carbon footprint down. As well as this, the packaging used on products you buy from Skantlyn have had a story to tell, as she likes to reuse previous packaging instead of brand new.


Liz also runs her graphic design studio, designthoughts where she applies her quirky illustrative style into her designs; clients she has worked with include Oxford University Press and Infinity Brands, who sell their products all over the world.
