Steffi Hansen is a Surface Pattern Designer, illustrator, hand letterer and silkscreen print artist born in central Germany.
After graduating her studies in Graphic, Interior and Colour Design in 2013, Steffi relocated to Beijing, China where she began working for different labels creating surface pattern and print designs for fashion, home textiles and a range of paper based stationery products.
Steffi’s time living in Asia greatly influenced her work. She began combining a range of Asian motifs rich in both culture and symbolism with her love of the ornamental designs from the Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods. Steffi describes her style as eclectic, bold, ornamental, playful and colourful. Within her illustrations, she explores the juxtaposition of organic and geometric shapes with an exaggerated use of scale to create fresh and dynamic design outcomes.
Her love for interiors lead Steffi to undertake additional training in Interior Styling at Central Saint Martins University of Arts London. Since completing her studies Steffi is now launching her own business which offers a line of textiles and accessories for the home, as well as a range wallpapers using her own meaningful surface pattern designs and illustrations.
Steffi currently works from her studio based in Berlin, Germany.
