In honor of William Morris’ birthday this upcoming March, we want to pay tribute to his decades of work helping lead the English Arts and Crafts Movement, co-founding a design firm that decorated churches and homes across England, reviving textiles, writing and illustrating books (influencing authors such as Tolkien) and designing beautiful, versatile patterns that celebrate nature and continue to be loved to this day.
You may not realize how many William Morris designs you already recognize, but once you do, you will start to see him everywhere. In fact, hundreds of our products feature his designs, from iPad covers to greeting cards to tiles.
To evoke the feeling of blooming spring, nothing beats the Tulip design – bright, dynamic and virtually bursting into 3D. It’s fun and striking on a mousepad (and even comes in stamps):
And as a covering case, his Pimpernel design manages to make an iPhone look vibrant, stylish and also elegant:
Here’s to Mr. Morris!
