Pink Door Pink Label

This is the line that started our venture into bringing our own consumer brand to life. An ‘everyday simple’ line of patterned notecard sets, journals and notebooks. The line now populates bookstores, boutiques and people’s homes around the world.

It began as a way for us to test the viability of our design thinking in the marketplace and getting a sense of the real life challenges of what our manufacturing clients face on a day to day basis. There were many learnings, many headaches, heartaches, frustrations, much success and a small boatload of industry awards that followed. We sold the company in 2017, ten years after the date of launch.
