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.
