Lucinda is a British designer specializing in printed textiles and graphic design. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1999, Lucinda moved to Tokyo where she lived for seven years and is now based in Los Angeles with her family. Greatly inspired by her time in Japan, Lucinda began to focus her work on Printed Textiles. With a camera always at hand, the majority of Lucinda’s designs are derived from her countless photos and day-to-day observations. These are then transposed into strong and unique graphic patterns and compositions. She works on a freelance basis, while developing her own line of quality hand-made printed textile products and collaborations. Lucinda has been deeply involved in the launch of LINK.
