Hello, I'm Kate England
I'm a freelance artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. I specialise in whimsical, expressive and vibrant designs that entertain, engage and inspire. I have 15 + years experience of making stories come to life.
“With great sense of colour, Kate England uses her bold and expressive style to create whimsical, and vibrant illustrations. Her unique and distinctive style has been appreciated by various clients within Scandinavia and worldwide. With her strong integrity and personal style and touch, Kate has been commissioned for advertising and editorial work, icons, patterns, e-learning, and websites.”
I have a background as a graphic designer, creating icons mainly for American corporations such as Facebook and WhatsApp. Since 2013, my focus has been illustration and I have been producing artwork for e-learning. My job is to create graphics as well as illustrations for animations. So when I am finished, the animator has a smorgasbord of artwork to set into motion.
I create magnified moments, drawing inspiration from my Swedish and British heritage, travel, science, food, nature, technology and a sense of wonder and magic.
Want to work together? I'd love to hear from you!
But Why is it Called Marmalade Moon?
A Digital Romance
Founded in 1997, Marmalade Moon started off as a place for experimenting with digital art and making our digital environments beautiful.
Next I started designing illustrations, stickers, icons and user experiences for clients all over the world.
Over the past five years, commercial and educational illustrations have been the primary focus of my career.
I'm always interested in new and exciting projects so do get in touch!
It was August, I was designing a web site for myself and my digital art, but what was it going to be called? I had visited some friends in their summer cottage in the archipelago. We had been picking cherries in their garden.
Standing at a bus stop, half way back to town, waiting for my bus to arrive on a dusty road, the moon rose, behind dark pine trees. It was huge. And orange. Like marmalade. Marmalade Moon.
