Jill Malek specializes in print and pattern design for invitations, customized stationery, book layouts and web sites. In 2008, she expanded her love of printed matter to wallpaper design.
By enhancing spaces with rich textures, she has applied her experience acquired from graphic design to the art direction of interior spaces. Since creating her wallpaper patterns, her designs have subsequently appeared as wall decals, on yoga mats, and on kitchen appliance surfaces.
Her custom commissions, both locally and abroad, include work for The Rockwell Group, Vosges Haute Chocolate, MTV Networks, Foley and Corinna, Charles Chang-Lima, Bochic, Box Studios and LG Hausys. Her wallpaper has appeared in many high-profile locales, such as the new Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Hotel and Resort Casino, the Jones New York Shoowoo stores, the Google offices in Los Angeles, the Ritz Carlton Restaurant in Boston, and the new Wieden + Kennedy offices in Minnesota.
She lives and works in New York with her husband Vram and her son, Luca...both ongoing sources of inspiration.
Born and raised on Cape Cod, Casey Gunschel's interest in nature began early, where collected curiosities informed her later work as a fine artist. Her artwork is exhibited across the United States and is held in many private collections. A love of art and passion for interior space translate as Palacepapers, her wallpaper and fabrics company.
Dedicated to traditional craft, Palacepapers patterns are hand silk screened by skilled artisans on a variety of natural fibers and papers. Inspired by a collective fascination with the natural environment, fable illustrations and antique maps, each Palacepapers hand-drawn design lends an original and sophisticated approach to wallpaper and textiles.
Wall-Library is also excited to be able to inform its customers that it is also the UK sole distributor of for the following Canadian designer:
Judit Gueth was born in Hungary to a Biology and Geography teacher whose own passion for Hungarian folk art and nature inspired Judit’s love of colour, pattern and design.
The path towards designing her own wallpaper was not a straightforward one. As Judit originally worked for a children’s clothing company working on their pattern repeats. It was here however that Judit’s passion for patterns was strengthened. After leaving the company Judit embarked on a Government supported programme at the Toronto Business Development Centre to be able to set up her own business.
On leaving the programme Judit was excited about printing her own designs; but hampered by printing costs Judit found away round this by printing fabrics using her own inkjet. The business started by printing cards and grew when Judit found the confidence to launch her own wallpaper.
Judit’s love of the Arts and Craft movement and the Art Nouveau scene are evident in her strong fluid patterns; with her wallpapers being extremely evocative of this period.
