Bella Grace, an accomplished illustrator from the Isle of Wight, has called designing the official Wimbledon 2024 poster the pinnacle of her career.

As a devoted tennis enthusiast, Bella was invited by the tournament organisers to create this prestigious artwork, inspired by the iconic trophies of Wimbledon.

A blend of nature and sport
Her poster is a captivating mix of flowers, tennis courts, and a trophy, echoing the charm of English gardens.

Unique details include hydrangeas crafted from scorecards, agapanthus formed from tennis rackets, and Rufus the Hawk, the bird responsible for pigeon control at Wimbledon.

14 hidden tennis elements
Bella shared that the design features 14 hidden tennis elements, symbolising each day of the championship from 1st to 14th July.

The intricate details and hidden layers of the poster have garnered high praise from Wimbledon officials.

A dream come true
Bella expressed her delight at being selected from a pool of talented artists and agencies. She said,

“I’m completely honoured to have this opportunity.”

Her love for tennis traces back to her childhood when she volunteered as a ball girl at the Eastbourne International tournament.

Seeing her artwork displayed at such a prestigious event filled Bella with pride. She said,

“To see it here and people taking photos of it is just a dream come true.”

An unforgettable experience
Bella attended the event with her husband, describing the occasion as “a really big deal”.
