Welcome To scarlettjosse.com

For the first time ever on this fantastical freelance journey I have all my work together in one place! What do you think?

Let me show you around. There is a gallery of my illustrations here. I have an online journal that I use to document my work and it’s full of commissions, collaborations, behind the scenes, press, shopping edits and other bits and bobs. Finally if you really want to know more about me, my work and clients, well that would all be on my about page.


Creative Digest

I was interviewed by Creative Digest about how I came to be an illustrator, my process and what I would like to do in the very near future which happens to include more editorial work, a book cover commission and an illustrated line of products…

Find the original interview here.

Loewe Love

Let’s talk about the Elephant in the room shall we…(sorry I couldn’t help it).

I like pink accessories, I’m not going to lie. And do you know what else I love more than pink? Animal shaped bags. I have two from Orla Kiely, a Raccoon and a Poodle and I wear them all the time. Have you seen any other animal shaped bags about, please let me know!

Elephant – Loewe

Panda – Loewe

Zara Simon – Metropolis

Last year I was commissioned by Zara Simon to illustrate her new ‘Metropolis‘ Collection for the 2017 launch and lookbook. It was a pretty intense commission as there were so many pieces to draw, and because the illustrations would be used by both buyers and customers they had to be fairly accurate yet a creative illustration.

I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project and I’m so happy with the results. Thank you for commissioning me Zara!

I have picked out a few of my favourite pieces from the collection below…

Yangon Ring

Yangon Pendant

Ibiza Diamond Ring

Ibiza Rainbow Diamond Ring

Star Studs

Opal Fruit Earrings

The full set of illustrations for the Metropolis collection can be found here.

Think Pink

Even though you’ve probably only gone and seen it a million times before, pink is back and the colour for spring. Ok ok the Miu Miu slipper slides are red and fluffy but I really wanted to include them in this ‘currently coveting’ pick for spring.

Slides – Miu Miu

Pointed Bow Slippers – Rochas

Knotted Slides – N°21

House of Spring

Scarlett Josse x House of Spring ‘When Art Meets Fashion

I was commissioned by House of Spring to create a set of illustrations telling the story of how their shoes go from idea to reality in, ‘The Journey of your Shoe‘.

House of Spring have also asked me to collaborate with them on another set of illustrations. This second set of illustrations were all about capturing the quality and craftsmanship behind the brand. Hopefully you will be seeing more from this brand collaboration in the near future!

I was also interviewed in a few questions by the lovely HOS team, find the original interview here.

Fenwick – Half Term

I was commissioned by Fenwick to illustrate their ‘stationery’ themed Half Term Campaign. The illustrations were used online and in-store across the UK.

Here is an edited pick of my stationery illustrations.

I truly loved creating these illustrations. Thank you for having me to illustrate again Fenwick!
