About

Hello! My name is Hayley Hunter and I'm a 22 year old creative human with an obsessive love for coffee. I grew up in Stourbridge (near Birmingham if you're after a more recognisable location) but I moved to Leeds in the autumn of 2014 for university and my heart now belongs firmly to the North. I have a First Class Honours degree in Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design from Leeds Arts University, where I developed my love of research, design, colour and creativity into a personal practice that confidently explores these avenues through concept development and trend forecasting, innovative surface design and product styling. To take a peek at my work you can view my portfolio here.

I'm currently splitting my time between Leeds - where I live with my boyfriend Joe and our myriad of plants in a little city centre flat - and Birmingham - where I'm lucky enough to be interning as a Colour & Trim Designer for a large car company. I spend a lot of my time researching, creating concepts, playing around with colour and materials, designing trend boards and drinking coffee and I absolutely adore it. To stay up to date with what I'm doing professionally, you can read my studio journal and check out my calendar!

This blog is an expression of every area of my life - art, design, beauty, interiors, lifestyle - with a few personal post thrown in for good measure! I try to keep my blog open, honest and a reflection of the things I love.
