Yay we won Gift of the Year in 2 categories!

Posted by on Jul 25, 2010 in All, News | 2 Comments

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.

You can buy these lovely products from my online shop www.littlemoose.co.uk or you can contact me if you would like any further information.

Sarah’s birthday

Posted by on Apr 13, 2009 in My Work | No Comments

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!
