I was interviewed by the Make it in Design team about my designs, process and how my design business has grown and evolved. You can read the full interview here, but here is an excerpt:
"Can you describe the evolution of your business?
I first found my passion for design at the young age of 13 and have never looked back! I’ve been a graphic designer for the past 20 years, working both in design firms and as a freelancer. A few years ago I started helping my mom, Marian Gallian of Pink Hippo Quilts, design quilts for fabric manufacturers to show at Quilt Market. Through this I was introduced to the world of art licensing and surface pattern design. I decided to delve into this world and started my brand Vetmari (pronounced Vet•Marie). I began with a focus on creating fabric collections and brought my portfolio to show to manufacturers at the International Quilt Market. I was lucky enough to land a deal to create my first fabric collection with P&B Textiles and have since also become a licensed designer with Shibumi Home and I’m co-authoring my first book with C&T Publishing."
Yvette Marie Jones is the designer and illustrator behind Vetmari. She lives in Alpine, Utah, with her husband and 2 children.
