1. DESIGN LABEL - seasalt

Something else I discovered in Totnes was the Cornish label Seasalt. The business was founded in Cornwall 1981 but it wasn't until 2003 that they began to design their own exclusive prints. Their patterns feature lots of boats, Cornish flowers, and Seaside themes and are created in-house by designers Sophie Chadwick and Laura Watson. The colourful designs are put to good use not only on

11. Illustrator & Creative Director Anna Bond

In the midst of a world grounded in digital technology, sometimes we need a reminder that good things can still be grounded in reality. This is why we still go visit galleries and museums to see artwork in person (a habit I’m still trying to get better at). This is why we still give each other greeting cards, or why our desks seem to collect countless post-its over time. It can be as simple as opening a letter or unwrapping a present–interacting with real material still matters. 

On that note, I’d like to introduce you to Anna Bond, owner and creative director of Rifle Paper Co.–an inimitable force in the stationery field and beyond.

While Anna now lives and works in Winter Park, Florida, she has roots in New Jersey and received a degree in graphic design in Virginia. After working as an art director and freelance illustrator for a couple years, she discovered (or rekindled, rather) her love for stationery design while illustrating some wedding invitations. As mentioned in her feature on The Every Girl, stationery was the optimal combination of graphic design and illustration that she had been searching for, and so she pushed onwards.

While there’s something to be said for art directing at 21, I admire Anna’s honest and expressive way of dealing with her expectations, realities, and how to improve upon them. She’s spoken before about the first launch of Rifle Paper Co.’s website, detailing product disasters, website crashes, international shipping issues, and taking turns panicking with her husband. Without sounding cruel or spiteful, it’s incredibly comforting to know that someone as ambitious and driven as Anna has screwed up before. And to me, there’s no better way to recover than by succeeding.

Nearly all Rifle Paper Co. products feature Anna’s hand-painted illustrations, which are often nostalgic in style with a pastel palette.

Some of Rifle Paper Co.’s selected clients and collaborative partners: Anthropologie (their very first!), Kate Spade New York, Hygge & West, Chronicle Books, AMC Mad Men, and Penguin Books. I think it’s important to note that the variety of clients reflects Anna’s ability to design for both traditional and modern brands, which can be difficult depending on one’s personal style.

Follow along with Anna and her husband Nathan’s exciting ventures at Rifle Paper Co.’s website, and take a peek at Anna’s portfolio here. You can also find her on Twitter. I particularly enjoyed her Day in the Life feature on Design*Sponge as well.

13. PAPERCHASE - danish delights

I have been attending the Paperchase Autumn Winter 2014 press show at their HQ in London and will bring you all the preview pics soon.

14. PAPERCHASE - lush mush

I am continuing my look at what prints and patterns are currently in store at Paperchase and we start today with a very sweet pattern called 'Lush Mush'.

15. Knit & Purl

Finally Autumn! The weather is now lovely in Italy as well. I couldn't be happier. I'm all for rain and woolly hats.

I grew up in a family of avid knitters. I went to school wearing jumpers with my initials hidden in complex and colorful jaquard patterns. I remember playing with my Mom's box of buttons and long hours spent choosing colors at the yarn shop. I loved it all... My only big frustration was that the ladies in my family are all left-handed, except for my Nan. Learning to knit from them was quite difficult for me and I often felt a bit left out! Now I'm not as productive as they are, but I do enjoy knitting, whenever I have the time...

This is the front and back of a notebook for knitting and sewing patterns that I have illustrated for La Marelle. If you are visiting the Fair Maisons&Objects currently in Paris, this is part of their new collection alongside several new cards I did for them. I will eventually update the portfolio to show all this new work.

Do I have time to knit these days? I wish!
I'm hard at work on new books again. I've just finished a little soft cover for Edizioni EL and I'm currently working on a new picture book with Editions Fleurus. I'm very excited about this new collaboration that will stretch until late April 2014. I can't say much yet, but the stories and books I am doing with them are varied and all very fun. Not to mention, very well printed! 

I look at my stash of yarn and hope to finish at least that pair of mermaid gloves I've started in 2010 and left halfway done!
