I was so pleased to discover the line art version of the logo I designed for Bramble & Wild being used in such lovely ways, that I thought I would share some snaps from their Instagram page.

Grace’s beautiful blooms and stunning arrangements look ace in these kraft bags, adorned with the gold foiled line art logo.

I was also excited to see some of the shop’s beautiful stationery, with the logo peeping out…

As well as beautiful flowers, you’ll find lots of little gifts to entice you in. If you’re local, and you’re not familiar with Bramble & Wild, I urge you to go! It is a wonderful florist situated on Frome’s historic Catherine Hill, which is peppered with amazing independent shops, and certainly not your average high street.

I loved spotting my print, ‘The Forager’ on Nineteen’s beautiful website this week! Take a look at their lovely wares, here or take a trip to Clevedon to see them for yourself!

Stocking up with stocking fillers

I seem to have developed something of a bug for screen-printing in the last month or so, preparing exciting new products for the festive season in line with the launch of Volume 4 (the Christmassy one) of The Print Shop.

If you head over to the shop in Quakers Friars, you’ll find a festive window display with big 3D wooden trees, adorned with handmade decorations, screen-printed snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, above wooden tables garnished with hand-crafted books, hand-printed bags, and a huge amount of Christmas cards!

If you’re not local, I’ve done a big re-stock of my Etsy shop, which you can find here, where you’ll be able to find these things (below)!

19

Posted on: October 29th, 2013 by Dawn

Last week was an exciting week, picking up prints, carefully wrapping them up, hopping on a bus to Clevedon and dropping them off at Number 19, Alexandra Road. It was lovely to meet the girls behind ’19’, Becky and Victoria, and I can’t wait to see the space come together. It just so happens that Clevedon is even prettier than I remembered it being, so definitely worth a visit.

I’ve also made a new illustrated print, ‘British Butterflies’ especially for the shop opening. Let me know what you think! Details of the grand opening to follow.

Molly & Isla

I have recently finished designing this logo and business card design for Molly & Isla, a clothes designer maker from my home town, Frome.

You can see some of Julie’s lovely women’s and children’s ranges by visiting Molly & Isla on Facebook. Website coming soon!

I get quite a buzz out of designing logos, and really enjoyed this project. If you’re looking for a unique, illustrative logo for your own business, or know someone who might, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me, and we can chat about your requirements!

New seafront supplier

Posted on: October 12th, 2013 by Dawn

I’m really quite excited to be involved with this new vintage and handmade emporium, opening in Clevedon this month. Clevedon is a beautiful town, local to Bristol, but on the seafront, with a glorious old fashioned pier.

The shop will utilise the girls’ shared gift for visual merchandising and eye-catching shop displays, showcasing unique home interiors, comprising vintage collections and hand-crafted interior pieces made by local makers.

I will be contributing framed and unframed prints to the shop, and am currently working on a new piece especially for the shop’s opening…more to follow!

You can find ’19’ on Facebook, Twitter and on their new blog, where Victoria and Becky are posting lots of nice insights into their shop set-up mission.

In the print studio

Posted on: August 27th, 2013 by Dawn

Great day in the Drawn in Bristol print studio on Friday! I watched (between lots of fiddling around with the registration sheet and spilling inks) my greeting card design of my favourite Oscar Wilde quote come to life as a three-colour screenprint.

I have added Oscar to my shop, and a framed copy will be appearing in The Print Shop from tomorrow until the end of September.

For the love of snail mail

For me, there’s still something very exciting about putting a hand-written letter through the postbox, and the anticipation of maybe receiving something in return. I also have a small fascination with (and a growing collection of) stickers, so I’ve combined these two pleasures and made some hand-printed stationery kits, comprising hand-printed recycled envelopes, double-sided letter paper featuring two screen-printed designs, and hand-printed sticker designs in a bold magenta colour. I am super pleased with the way these have turned out, and wish that I could pinch a pack for myself, but I have resisted and put them in my shop instead.

Busy, busy

Posted on: August 27th, 2013 by Dawn

Wow! It feels like ages since I last gave this blog the time and attention it deserves! I have been very busy crafting new items to sell in the second volume of The Print Shop, which launches tomorrow! In fact, I am moments away from making a delivery of hand-printed stationery kits, a framed copy of my latest print (more to follow) and some new screen-printed placemats.

I have also added some cards to the shop, with a sweet little house and mountain design on the front.

If you can’t make it down to the shop, I have added some new lines to my online shop for your perusal.
