Jet, Set, Go! Design Residency in Jávea, Spain

Jet, Set, Go! Design Residency in Jávea, Spain

How do you rejuvenate your creativity? Travelling is one of our favourite ways. This is why we're excited to be voyaging to Sun and Co. in Jávea, Spain (later this month) for our next design residency.

"Residencies" are where creative professionals can choose to stay (temporarily) elsewhere, sometimes participating in specific programmes and opportunities. These allow artists and designers to work in new conditions which is often a catalyst for the imagination! They also offer a range of facilities and the chance to network.

Illustrating The Secret Garden: The Finished Illustration

We partnered with York Theatre Royal and Little Vikings to bring the outside, inside for Bloom! Festival 2018. Over the course of a sunny Saturday, we illustrated the windows of the theatre and encouraged visitors to join us. We were inspired by the nearby gardens and used this in our drawings.

Earlier this week, we illustrated at the Ladies' Night shopping event at Meadowhall in Sheffield. Customers could sit with us for 10 - 15 minutes to receive a personal portrait. It was such a fun evening and we met so many lovely people. This creative experience left everyone smiling.
