www.annielewisdesign.com Who are you and what do you do? I collect vintage Vera scarves, swim in Lake Washington, cook 7 spice curries, and love design of all types.

Who are you and what do you do? I’m just a redhead who grew up in the midwest, grateful for Molly Ringwald and Jim Henson as my role models. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a painting degree and then, with luck and a little help from my animator sister, ended up getting to make puppets for stop-motion […]
Who are you and what do you do? We are Aaron and Erin Nuland, a husband and wife duo making hand-crafted, natural wooden toys.

I am currently very inspired by the original 1960s Avengers tv show. My work is pretty mod, black, white and grey and full of simple, clean […]
Who are you and what do you do? We are Jill and Erin Lynch of Dolls for Friends. We call Vancouver, WA home, and have been creating unique plush for the past six years. We find inspiration in everyday life-maybe a goofy kids joke, animation, animals, music, something from our childhood, there is so […]
Who are you and what do you do? Hey there! My name is Ingrid and I make backpacks, messenger bags and satchels out of waxed canvas and vintage wools. What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on? I’ve got a larger size, narrow profile satchel in the works, and it will probably be making its debut at […]
