Vickie Chan is an artist skilled in many talents, but it’s her passion for illustration and surface pattern design that really shines!

 

Chan grew up in the United Kingdom but with strong links to Hong Kong, where she now calls home. Working freelance from her home studio, she says it is not always easy to find creativity. But by making sure the apartment feel cozy and homey, she enjoys and loves the space, with enough bits and pieces around her to keep the creative juices flowing.

 

I was lucky enough to have firsthand experience in this, visiting Vickie at her home studio. Check out the video!

Since founding her own studio, studio Chanpei, Chan’s motto is not only to bring forth her designs but to work with brands and companies on creative strategic directions and help them find their identity.

It was especially incredible to see her designs on the side of a pink double decker bus in Hong Kong, featuring illustrations for brand 6IXTY8IGHT.

Vickie Chan’s artwork comes in different shapes and forms; inspired by urban textures, tropical surroundings, nature and animals. Her hand-drawn prints can be used for a variety of items, from stationery and packaging to interiors and homeware. One of my favorite items she has made so far using her patterns are these lovely cushion covers.

Exploring studio Chanpei has given me a far greater appreciation for illustration and surface pattern design. Many thanks to Vickie for taking her time to meet with us!
