Sugar Snap Studio

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:

The Woodland Collection

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.
