New Website Launched!

Hurrah, i've finally launched my website, something i've been meaning to do for a long while! It means I can also use this blog page as a page for inspirations and other thinkings rather than as a folio! You can take a peek here... www.rosalindmaroney.co.uk


I was excited to see one of my t-shirt designs arrive on the Harrods website! This was a lovely project working within the theme of 2012 'London!' Hopefully my other designs will be winging their way to their shops and website soon so watch this space... See and buy them here!  Copyright © Harrods Ltd


The ever-stylish Junior magazine has very kindly included Dylan & Boo (my button print) by Little Bird Told Me in a page for rocking animals in Aprils edition. I was also really impressed with the previous page of selected rugs and the photo shoot is well worth a look too. Keep it up Junior!
