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.
Feeling autumnal? As the leaves fall from the trees and the darkness of winter descends, we’ve got a new collection of jewellery from Layla Amber perfect for this time of year: The Woodland Collection.
For some time Layla had been toying with the idea of working in wood. She had the spark of an idea to use geometric patterns in some way, but what form was that going to take? Layla began just sketching out ideas and always seemed to naturally gravitate towards drawing animals, and in this case it was an owl. Experimentation led her to remove all of the unnecessary features, replacing what was left with geometric shapes and patterns. From here the idea was developed across some of her favourite woodland animals.
