Frabjous Design

Frabjous Design is a one-woman ‘kitchen-table’ design company which has originated from a passion for local and natural history combined with a love of design and photography.   As a ‘homepreneur’ self-taught in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, I produce items relating to the local area in the form of printed media.


My designs aim to be quirky and unique, for example recycling old engravings into ‘vectors’ and giving them a modern twist (as with the ‘Allendale Wolf’ design) and transforming them into posters, cards, postcards and hand screen-printed fabrics like handkerchiefs – all of which are made as keepsakes of the area which I love so much.
