Stillo Noir is a Swiss creative studio specializing in black & white pattern design & illustration, led by me – Tanya Heidrich

Enhancing the quiet details and shifting focus away from overall forms and color, I play with textures and details to create fun, unique designs with a handmade quality. I draw inspiration from the simple beauty of everyday things, from alpine flora and leafy plants in surrounding nature, to manhole covers and tiles in countries I’ve been lucky enough to travel to. Sketchbook in hand, I’m always dreaming up new patterns along the way!

With a bachelor from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a background as a freelance graphic designer, I’ve developed a keen eye for composition, typography and cohesion that I continue to apply across disciplines today.

I enjoy the process of creation as much as the final product, so don’t hesitate to check out my Instagram or Youtube channel if you’re curious to see new work in the making.
