Spotted! - More Pencil cases!
I've had a couple of very busy weeks ( - sorry to my neglected blog!) as I'm working on a number of top secret (but very lovely!) projects for 2012. It's great fun working 12 - 18 months in advance and looking at all the trends for the coming seasons, as I get a sneaky idea of what we will all be buying in the future! The only problem is that I can't share all of my projects with you all the time... However, I can share with you some of the projects I was working on around this time last year which are just filtering into the shops now! For example, while wandering around W H Smith's I came across a couple more of my 2011 pencil case designs for Helix, which include the Brit Rock design I previously found in Tesco and my very popular 'Controller' case. The design for this came about when I was experimenting with designing new wavy case shapes - When the sample arrived I just knew it had to have a game's controller print added - It's very simple, but with the neon ink I think it looks great! It's almost end of term, which means 'Back to School' season for retailers, so expect to see lots more designs over the coming weeks!
