Sugar Snap Studio was set up in 2012, to house the growing collection of illustrations for children by Jessie Ford. To date, her work has included packaging for Mothercare, suitcase illustrations for Samsonite, children’s books for Abrams Publishing USA, and murals for Sophie Dahl, to name a few.
Last Summer, Sugar Snap Studio’s products were sold in Selfridges, as part of the Bright Young Things show, with the Poundshop Collective. She has exhibited widely, in New York, Milan, London, and this coming Winter, in Japan. Sugar Snap Studio’s graphic and colourful designs are due to hit the shops this Spring, when it’s first stationery line will be launched.
Jessie’s simple illustrations of creatures great and small depicted in bold colours are distinctive in style. Here are a few of our favourites:
Bear Hunt by Sugar Snap Studio
A young boy consults his book as he wanders through the dark woods on a starry night followed by a procession of bears wearing party hats.
Fox by Sugar Snap Studio
Mr Fox is looking very dapper in this striking orange and back print.
Bear on a Bike by Sugar Snap Studio
This big smiley black bear peddles through the park on his penny farthing bicycle.
