Q&A With Tillie Rose Studio

Hey! Let’s get to know you a little better. Introduce yourself and tell us more about you as an artist.


I’m Tillie, an illustrator and small business owner based in Sheffield, UK. My work is colourful, funky and is designed with the intention of bringing joy into people’s lives. I want to make things that make people feel happy, things that can brighten up their every day lives.


What was the inspiration behind your collection?

I wanted to create a collection that felt like a good balance of cute and colourful with a little bit of humour. I wanted my collection to feel relatable to the customer, but also look super cute!


Tell us a bit about how the design process worked?

The process of designing these cases started with going through the prints I’ve designed for my small business, and narrowing it down to my bestsellers. I then went through and adapted the designs to work on a phone case. One of the designs is brand new for this collection (and you can also find it as a print and sticker on my shop!) and the other 2 are old designs that I decided would make cute phone cases.

What's your favourite design from the collection and why?

The ‘Live, Laugh, Leave Me Alone’ one is my favourite by far. I came up with this design specifically for this and I feel like it’s my new motto in life. I am also OBSESSED with the clear glitter case it’s printed on and cannot get over how good it looks!

Where do you go when you're looking for inspiration?

Most of the time my inspiration comes from things I see and do in my everyday life, whether it’s watching movies or TV shows, listening to music, visiting a beautiful place or even just a conversation I have with someone. I aim to create things that make people feel a sense of nostalgia or something that feels relatable, so taking inspiration from the little moments in every day life is a huge part of my process. But also, you can never go wrong with a bit of Pinterest scrolling for inspiration!
