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.

We were really excited to get the Moomins License for bags and accessories last year and launched our first designs in October. The Moomins is so strange and cute – I love them. My favorite character is definitely Little My, she’s so funny and naughty. Here are some of the lovely items we released.
If you would like to buy any of these please contact me.
It was my design buddy, Sarah’s (nicknamed ‘Sarash’) birthday yesterday and so I drew her a card from everyone at work. The card also included some Hattifatteners from the Moomins as we have just got the license to design a Moomin bag range and the Hattifatteners are some of our favourite Moomin Characters!
