LOOKING AHEAD

illustratoin, drawing, posters, design

2015 was an incredible year. We launched a new home goods line and made the commitment to use only organic fabrics, we painted a mural in downtown Tacoma, we did our first trade show in NYC, we worked with some pretty amazing people and projects, Scott rebuilt our Toyota chinook camper and we hit the road for work and play and we couldn't have done a much of this without you. We thank everyone who has supported and helped us along the way. You mean a lot to us.

As we look ahead to 2016 there are so many things we're so excited about, we're practically bursting at the seems with delight and anticipation, but that will come soon enough. One thing for sure is we will continue making and creating. 2015 was a year of keeping our heads down and working hard, so hard we felt like we lost a bit of why we started our business in the first place. Connecting with people, whether in the creative community or with those that admire our work has always been a priority; right after making what we believe in and feel good about.

During the past few months we've realized we'd like to put our focus on producing smaller quantities of goods then on wholesale (with a few exceptions for our favorite shops!) and the production and loss of personableness that comes with it at our small scale. We really love the stores that have shown their support, but we want to keep it simple this year and possibly even travel more to destinations near you. This means we may return to online and in person sales only, but for you that means lower prices for the things you love (check the shop and see!) from us without hurting our return to make a living. For us this also means we get to play with more ideas and have new things revolving in and out of our shop more often. We also want to hear from you! Is there something you'd love to see in a particular color or size? Do you want some of the posters we make made into a tote or pillow? Some of these things may be possible, you just have to ask and we'll see what we can do. We're still only a two person operation, so while it keeps us busy with every aspect of owning a business, it also allows us greater flexibility. 

We currently have a few design collaborations in the works that we'll be sharing over the next couple months. If you'd like to work with us for branding and/or design work please send us an email. We'd love to hear from you and are taking on new clients for the next year. Here's to a great new year!
