Marie Perkins (Bowie Style) started the Print & Pattern blog in her spare time while researching for mood boards in her job as a textile designer. Creating trend books for leading UK stores meant she needed images to demonstrate print trends. The blog soon became a must-read for those in the industry. Marie is herself a successful surface designer working under the name Inkjet Designs; her work has featured in numerous magazines and newspaper articles.
