About Elle

elle poulson illustrator designer homewares prints for kids

Hey, I’m Elle Poulson. An illustrator, stationery designer, and surface pattern artist based in the South Coast of England. 

My work is inspired by a mix of both the contemporary and the retro; with a love for fun modern design, bright colour, and nostalgic treasures that take me back to the 80s & 90s. 

Using a combination of modern techniques and traditional printing methods, you’re just as likely to notice me doodling in Procreate & Illustrator  as you are to see me spending tech-free hours with my Adana Letterpress or brush pens.  

Every piece is made to the highest quality with the aim to bring each recipient happiness. Whether you’re treating yourself to a playful print for your home or purchasing a minimalist card to share with someone important to you - it’s all about making people feel warm and fuzzy inside. 

When I’m not experimenting with inks, obsessing over my letterpress, and creating new designs-you’ll find me appreciating simple joys like beach trips, rambling across the heathlands, or building my 80s Lego with my kids. 

I’m also the founder and designer behind Print Play Learn, supplying beautiful early years educational resources to parents & teachers who want to cut down on planning time and bring more joy to their learning spaces. 

If you have any questions about my work or would like to hire me for your stationery or surface pattern design projects please get in touch.
