After the exciting news that Disaster Designs were shortlisted in 7 categories for Gift of the Year we were even more thrilled to discover that we’ve gone on to win for 2 of our ranges. I’m so happy that one of them was my Hello Sailor collection and the other was for our Moomins amazingly cute bag range. The Gift of the Year competition is run by the Giftware Association to reward products of excellence in the giftware industry.
My Hello Sailor range has a nautical and tattoo-style influence with pretty floral detailing. I also managed to include some of my doodles on it by creating a cute little anchor and bird pattern for it.
The Moomins comic range is based around one of the Moomin comic book covers. It’s so cute and I especially love the embroidered rain and cute Moomintroll holding an umbrella on the back of everything.
Thanks to our fab new team member Neil, our show stand is starting to look much better and looked great at the Pulse show in Earls Court, London, last week. Some of the pictures could be better but here’s a little peek of how it looked.
You can also buy some of these lovely products from my online shop Little Moose.
My Sugar Coated Cat range that I designed at Disaster Designs has arrived and so can now be found in shops all over the UK. My Sugar Coated Owl and Skull ranges have been selling really well and so it’s exciting to have a new design added on to the collection. I’m really pleased with how it has all turned out and especially love all of the bags!
You can now buy most of this range on my online shop Little Moose.
The other day I spotted that my friend had an amazing bag which she told me was from a wonderful little design company called Pip Studio. I just had to find out a bit more about them and all their super cute and pretty products. Their website is amazing as well – I love everything on it!
One of the things that stood out to me was the incredible attention to detail on their products, as well as the combination’s of patterns and imagery that work perfectly together.
The brand was created by a lady from the Netherlands named Pip who says that:
“[Her] inspiration comes from designing products that she could never find but always wanted”
She’s a real inspiration to me to try and get my Doodllery out there!
You definitely must check out their gorgeous website!
The samples of the new bag and accessories range that I designed at Disaster Designs arrived a couple of weeks ago which was very exciting! The range is called ‘Sugar Coated’ and includes an owl and a skull theme. I have even managed to sneak a few of my doodles on everything! We have just taken all of the samples to a trade fair and it did really well which is fab. Unfortunately it won’t be available to buy until November so let me know if you would like me to email you when it arrives!
Here is a peak of my favorite items from the range…..
