Interview with Studio Calico!

 

Another interview post!  This time with the fabulous April Foster of Studio Calico...

- Describe your newest collection.

Our newest collection, Elementary, is a full release of paper, label stickers, journaling cards, fabRips, rub-ons, and sticker alphabets.  Elementary is our take on back-to-school, but it includes lots of simple patterns perfect for scrapping the everyday as well.  Look for academic ledgers, warm tones, and a raise in your creative IQ.  We’ve also added some brand new products to the mix this time, so be on the lookout for those!

- What was the inspiration behind your new release?

School is just around the corner and we wanted a collection that was perfect for scrapbooking school photos, for kids of all ages, plus have some nice warm tones that would be nice for fall.  Finding a nice vintage ruler at a flea market as well as report cards and a primer were just the icing on the cake.

- What do you love about this collection - what is your favorite part?

My favorite part of the new collection is the color scheme.  For me, it’s so important to nail that.  We spend a lot of time deciding and conferencing over color choices because I want the line to be useable for boy or girl, old or young, and appear timeless.

- What is a typical day like designing at Studio Calico?

Designing at Studio Calico is definitely a group effort, led by Stephen Ogden, who actually doesn’t work at the office at all.  When we’re ready to discuss a line, we first begin with a theme, although I hesitate to say “theme” because all our papers have patterns that are not thematic at all.  Then, we decide the colors, which is usually a narrowing down process.  After that, I might send vintage imagery Stephen’s way or some loose ideas for paper: such as “something with numbers” but from there it’s all him.  Stephen has as close to 100% creative freedom as any designer I know, but he’s certainly earned it.  I think Stephen has a great job!

An Interview with Doodlebug + Photos!

I was giddy over getting a little background on the creativity buzzing over at Doodlebug!  This is an interview with Tonya Prawitt in Design/Product Development

- What was the inspiration behind your new releases?
We met as a team and discussed latest trends, design ideas and products that we felt the industry was in need of. Being mindful of the upcoming holidays, we focused on fresh ideas and exciting color palettes. We pulled all of this inspiration together and began designing our own unique version of the things we love!
 
- What do you love about these collections - what is your favorite part?
I absolutely love the vibrant colors and all of the coordinating accessories that go with each collection. We have some yummy new buttons that are vintage looking. They have an amazing pearl finish and the colors are so beautiful that I want one of every assortment—they are my absolute favorite from this release!
 
 
- What is a typical day like designing at Doodlebug?
We work in a very fun, inspiring and colorful atmosphere. Every room is a doodlebug color—including our offices. With three design team members, we have plenty to keep us busy working on either marketing ads, class projects or product development. Designing is my dream job!
 
- What do you love best about the designing process?
I would have to say that the most rewarding part is seeing the finished product packaged and complete. It is better than Christmas morning as a child! I also love to use the brand new product and see what others create with it as well.
 
Thanks so much, Tonya!  And here is the finished product...
these jewels also come in all of the Doodlebug colors you love - that way, if you want all of one color - you have it!
these also come in packs of single colors!
                
      
    
    
 
Thanks again to the team at Doodlebug for sharing so much with us!  
 
That was fun - hope you enjoyed it too!
