First off, have you meet Aimée Wilder? If not you should.
I’ve been a huge fan of her designs for years. I love her whimsical prints and fun, bold colour choices. You can tell she has fun with design.
You may have seen her prints pop up in my roundups every so often, so I thought I would officially introduce you.
Born and raised in New York, Aimée spent her school holidays exploring the fashion showrooms where her parents both worked. From this early exposure to fashion trends and textiles, Aimée developed the foundation for her diverse interest in design and trends. She began working as a freelance graphic designer shortly after graduating from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2001. Aimée has also worked as an in-house designer for several firms including Designspace, Dwell Studio, and Martha Stewart Living. In 2008 Aimée launched her namesake brand, and began designing and manufacturing designer wallpaper. In 2013, Aimée began applying her designs to bespoke fabrics, printed on fine Belgian Cotton/Linen. Aimée draws her inspiration from contemporary graphic art and the design world. Influences include typography, logo design, illustration, textiles, urban toy design, rock poster art. Aimée’s current projects include designs for home textiles and accessories, fashion and print.
Aimée’s most recent print, dives a little deeper into the world of retro geometrics and reinvents an early release titled Baby (above), one of her first wallpapers ever released. This new release (below) is appropriately named – Mamma!
Don’t like the vibrant, bold colours of the retro period, but still love the design aesthetic? No problem! Aimée offers her prints in a variety of palettes, including neutral options, with soft metallic hints that are easy to work with and universally compliment any space.
