Designing for men can be sooo difficult

Our business has been sucessful as we've always listened to our customers. We were asked by one of our main stores in Liverpool (Voglio) very stylish design led store to design a gift for men.  So heres the artwork.  We've done a mug too! It goes on sale next week - I've tried to keep the colours contemporary and incorporate all interests.  I'll let you know how it goes!

New Giftwrap and tears

I had a moment earlier today when I opened the proofs for our new giftwrap.  I never normally love my work always think it can be better but  I totally love these designs. It was quite a step as it shows how far me and Jane my oldest friend and business partner have come, I was quite emotional.  Its been a lots of hard work but its days like this when its all worth it!

Busy busy busy.....

Its been really really busy here this week.  First of all our new brand went on sale which is called Canny Good - its a range of Northumbrian based cards and sits really well alongside our GeordieMugs range.  Also have lots of new designs out for Geordie and Scouse - heres a new belated birthday Geordie card.  We've again been talking about CHRISTMAS (OMG!!) and I've managed to squeeze some Christmas designs in for my agent for Surtex in New York next month (phew).  Looking forward to school going back next week and some level of normality and having a break!
