esme winter

:: by Lizzie


Esme Winter is a modern British designer whose philosophy is based upon quality in production and timeless design. Esme attended the University of the West of England, where she studied Textile Design. Graduating in 2008. In the years after, Esme worked on various projects in the design industry from bespoke interiors to handprinted wallpapers and visual merchandising. It has always been Esme’s aim to make her own products. In 2011 she made that step and hasn’t looked back since.

Her influences are wide, from classic British printmaker Enid Marx, sculptor Barbara Hepworth along with Eric Ravillious and his circle. However, her greatest influence has always been her upbringing in the antiquarian book trade. This lends itself to everything that Esme is about, from the carefully selected colour ranges to the materials used.


SMUG is excited to announce that in honour of The London Design Festival 2013 and in celebration of CAFE SMUG which will run downstairs at SMUG during the Festival, Esme will produce her Esker Wrapping Paper in Peach exclusively for SMUG.
