KIDS DESIGN - the land of nod

Just the one post on P&P today whilst I sort through yesterday's book entries. Today we have a celebration of all that's new at the Land of Nod. This season they are working with some great designers, all of which are familiar to us having been featured in the Print & Pattern books or blog. I love the way they seem to commission artists rather than produce designs 'in the style of'. We begin with this fun fruity range and typographic patterns from the Ampersand Design Studio....

And i love this modern ice cream print (below) by Lyndy Hants.
And below a fun good night or good morning on a cushion designed by Molly Meg.

CARDS - amber goodvin

P&P is back from the summer holidays and looking forward to lots of fresh new designs and designers for Autumn. We start by jumping straight back in with the colourful work of Hallmark artist Amber Goodvin. Amber specialises in painterly hand lettering and works at an artistic offshoot of Hallmark called Studio Ink. This experimental label describes itself as 'weirdness, whimsy, and whatnot and seeks to show another side of Hallmark by collaborating with cooler 'artsy' designers. Amber's designs are available on greetings cards and postcards and I have also posted some of her other design work below.

And also from Amber Goodvin at Studio Ink comes a range of roll wrap and gift bags created in collaboration with Mirna Stubbs (see next post).
