Memo is the working alias of Helen Entwisle, graduate of the Norwich School of Art and Design and now a freelance designer and screen printer living in Leeds. Her range of work encompasses limited edition prints, greeting cards, self-published ‘zines (she puts together a collaborative ‘zine entitled “Ten Fingers”), tote bags, hand-printed stationary and accessories. So no small range then.

Memo’s designs are quirky and playful, and embody a sense of fun and good-humour. They feature everyday objects such as radios, cameras, typewriters, ducks, and sweet, good-humoured messages like “coffee is good for your brain” and “nice to see you” accompanied by a sketch of a pair of spectacles. My especial favourite is “you float my [drawing of a boat]”.  In short, Memo’s designs are bright, homely and full of character.

If Memo’s designs tickle your fancy too, and you’d like to have a greeting card or two for your very own, visit her stores on either Etsy or Not On The High Street. You can find out more about her via her own website.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
