About me

I'm a Swedish designer and illustrator. I grew up in Luleå in the north of Sweden, but I’ve lived in Australia, London, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Borneo and many other places. Now I live with my British partner in a small village in the south of Sweden, where I spend my days working from my lovely home studio.

I love everything about designing: brainstorming, researching, sketching, colouring, and creating the final print or repeat. To me, designing is the ultimate creative outlet and I really enjoy the challenge of working to briefs and trends. I work in Photoshop, Illustrator, and on my iPad Pro. My biggest source of inspiration is nature and travelling, but I'm also inspired by old memories, vintage books, films, photography and many other things – inspiration is everywhere!

I'm a graduate of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design Module 1 - 3, and I've also taken several courses with Design Garden, plus tons of classes on Skillshare, Atly and Sketchbook Skool (yes, that's how it's spelt!) - I'm kind of addicted to learning new things.

Would you like to work together or license any of my designs? Email me at hello@sofiaenglund.com or fill in the contact form here.
