When it comes to designing a new product, collection or concept, Kate and Justin work both separately and together on different elements of each and every project.  Kate drives the aesthetic of the brand and product from initial concept as far as the design stage through a series of carefully curated moodboards and painterly mark making.  

Once the experimental part of the process is done, both Justin and Kate sit down at the design process and finalise pattern, colour stories, graphics and layout together.  Justin then takes over and digitally puts everything together before hand finishing almost every item with his old but trusty foil machine. 

But it doesn’t always work out as seamless as that of course! There are times in design when everything flows beautifully and then there are times when it doesn’t and it takes a little back and forth to unearth ourselves and move forward. Sometimes this means roles overlapping so we just go with that …
