Hey, I'm Rochelle.
A lifelong lover of style, art, and travel, my influences range from Marimekko to Maori moko, and my design aesthetic goes from pretty to pretty freakin' weird. But here's what you really need to know about me:
I've never met a blank surface I didn't want to print on. I can't help myself. I draw on Styrofoam containers, junk mail, old toilet paper tubes... anything I can get my hands on, really.
A few years ago, I strolled though a Large American Department Store Chain and had an epiphany of sorts: The prints on their clothes, stationery, and plates kinda reminded me of my doodles. Hmmm... could I also get my designs on products like these?
It took some doing, but I was able to turn my passion for doodling into a real-life product design studio. (Who knew?) I absolutely LOVE what I do, and love that I get to share it with y'all.
