Buttercrumble - Abigail and Chloe

We are Abigail and Chloe, a design duo, who are also known as Buttercrumble. We are currently based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. We are passionate about collaborating with other creative people who believe in the power of good design. 

Our love of beautiful illustration and design has been a life long affair. As identical twins, we grew up together (in the seaside town of Scarborough). We continue supporting each other, and encouraging each other to produce good artwork.

Together, we graduated from the University of Leeds, with degrees in Graphic & Communication Design. We have been able to combine our experience in PR, marketing, blogging, illustration and design to create a versatile collective. As a result, we have become a super-synced and harmonious team that can work twice as efficiently to achieve your vision. 

Buttercrumble is inspired by mid-century design and illustration, folk illustrations, Scandinavian design, stories and everyday life, and not forgetting sweetness is our weakness!
