Urban & Wild

surface pattern design

Urban & Wild is a small surface pattern studio based in Bristol and run by Joanna Usherwood. Joanna trained as a painter, then moved into graphic design and more recently into surface pattern design.

Joanna has always been captivated by textures, tiny details and pattern. All the designs relate to a long held fascination with nature and in particular foliage. Urban & Wild has been steadily growing and expanding the product ranges of fabric, card and paper products. There will be new designs and products to see on the 2020 BS9 Art Trail.

Working under the name of Urban & Wild  Joanna will be displaying and selling her popular surface pattern creations which include colourful cotton tea towels, aprons, zip bags, greetings cards, recycled wrapping paper and more.
