Nordic Nights...

It was lovely to see one of our designs used for the new 'Nordic Nights' collection from Paperchase.
The illustrations feature a whole host of woodland creatures, a fox, owls, moose and a loveable bear. They've been used across an abundance of great products; wall planners, phone cases, notebooks, and even snowglobes!

The beautiful artwork was designed by our fabulous in house designer Bec...talented little bunny isn't she?!

Here are some lovely styled shots from the Paperchase team, fab job!
