design done right: emma lawrenson, little print press

Good design is hard to come by and that is why the series Design Done Right exists. The purpose of this series is to expose lesser-known designers, as well as showcase some of the more well-known ones because they are just that good. From paper goods to art prints, web design and typography - we embrace the method to the madness (seriously, have you met a designer?) and wholeheartedly encourage it to continue.

While on the hunt for geometric abstract artwork we found Emma Lawrenson. Not only are these beauties abstract, they're original handmade screenprints! Everyone may not rejoice over that, but we sure do! First we browsed the Etsy shop, then her website, and then we started trying to learn more about the designer.

One bit of info we knew we had to share when we stumbled upon it?
Lawrenson's work has recently been featured on Mad Men, one of our favorites! We would be liars if we didn't admit that it drew us to her work that much more. The colors, the shapes, the simplicity of it all make these pieces perfect for any room in the home or even an office

We feel like it's worth noting that some of the pieces in her shop may seem pricey, but even Lawrenson notes that her Etsy prices are lower than if you purchased elsewhere. And don't forget - you're paying for original artwork - no one else will have a piece like yours! (We would buy them all up if we could!) There is also a sale section.

You can visit her Etsy seller profile here if you're looking for a bit more info about this designer, as well as her website and blog.
