About Pomelo & Pomelo
Pomelo & Pomelo was founded in September 2012 by Illustrator and Print Designer Abby Zweifel. Abby graduated in 2009 with Honors from Ringling College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration. Immediately after graduating Abby received an internship with Carter's in Atlanta, GA. This is where Abby really fell in love with print design! Although she loved working with so many inspiring people, Atlanta was not for her. She moved back to sunny Florida to take up a position with Bealls, Inc as a product development artist for Housewares and Soft Home. With extensive knowledge from childrenswear to housewares, Abby set out to create Pomelo & Pomelo, a creative company ready to deliver patterns made to color your world awesome.

>>> Abby and her husband Ben are both freelance illustrators. Even though they had the exact same college experience, their art style is the complete opposite.

>>> Abby is a lefty.
>>> Abby's other passion is all things relating to food. She loves to cook, bake and eat tasty snacks with family and friends. Her trips to New York are always a culinary adventure.
>>> She has a unique fascination with birds-- Ibises, Kiwi, Toucans, Spoonbill and seagulls are her favorites. She's actually met and petted a Kiwi bird while visiting the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington D.C. She considers this the second best day of her life.
