A Flourishing Start

Jasmine White London

It has been a flourishing start to the re-launch of Jasmine White London, founded by Supriya Broadbent.  Supriya has worked tirelessly over the summer to bring her original designs to fruition working closely with her design teams. Launching to the trade at Top Drawer London and subsequently her ecommerce website http://www.jasminewhitelondon.com  including seasonal pieces, christmas decoration and a fabulous ‘Leaping Reindeer’ textile collection. She has developed a handpainted enamelware range which we are convinced will become trade mark pieces for Jasmine White London. We hope you enjoy, and now it is time to shout it from the roof tops!



Out and About: Shows & Fairs

This week has seen a bit of sole use! A lot of pacing around three shows – but very good pacing. Firstly the Progressive Greetings in Islington. We were taking a client to look at the show with a view to taking a stand. Incredible to see so much paper design in one place.

Pulse London 2013


Secondly, Pulse (still one of my favourite trade shows)  Again a feast of inspiration, designers and makers. Still a strong trend for block motifs, typography and vintage-esque style.



Rawxclusive stand at pulse

We had a client with a stand RawXclusive (Rebecca stand up and take a bow)  and we were with another client who had to make the visit for the first time.









Waddle Waddle to bring a Smile!


We have to share last weeks highlight! One of those random moments, that was picked up by the newspaper via our tweet that was seen by Jim Hawkins @jimallthetime on Radio Shropshire!

Introducing Louise Tate Illustration

Sometimes there comes a time when you start to think that a lot of product and design begins to look the same. It was a lovely surprise to be proved wrong when meeting Louise Tate for the first time and seeing her illustrations and art prints. Her original drawings and pictures amuse, mock and are a lot of fun. Her new shop, online, is just the beginning of showing her works to a wider audience who will now be able to purchase from her website.Dogs, animals and children’s characters fill the website space – but not in any obvious way.  Watch this space …. www.louise-tate.com. You can also find her on facebook where she has a prolific following and news.

Tins Tins Tins! Holly Lasseter Designs

It’s been an exciting start to the year for Holly Lasseter. She has developed a range of tinware and melamine trays, under license, with a pomegranate and red berry design. She created the artwork specifically for each product – the tea caddy, trays and biscuit tins from her original designs she uses on her hand painted bone china. These will be available from stockists nationwide and from her website.
