Even though going back to school, university or even work after Christmas is a far away thought at the moment as we have just entered the festive season… Nobody can deny it’s a bit of an “ughhhh” feeling even if you haven’t signed yourself off for the year yet. One thing that we think gets us back into the working mindset is some brand new (rather aesthetically pleasing) stationary. So if you’re still looking for Christmas present ideas and know someone who REALLY hates that post Xmas graft then take a look at this lovely independent stationary brand from designer Coral Fowley.
Coral Fowley is a 25 years old textile artist based in Edinburgh who has a tiny but very lovely stationary brand. Studying a BA in fashion & textiles and then on to an MA in textiles, Coral is an international exhibited artist. She tells us that she finds a lot of her inspiration from natural sciences and loves to display her inspirations within her stationary work – her current range is heavily inspired by outer space.
“My stationery brand is the outcome of craving creative freedom. As much as I adore my research and heavier artwork, I love getting lost in creating products and prints I would buy myself, free from complexity and concept. The current collection is entirely space inspired, incorporating my obsessions; colour, texture and stationery. “
Preview some of her gorgeous creations that are sure to make your work space a little smarter:
“I totally designed this weekly planner with myself in mind. I love organising my week, like most people, I find myself spinning more plates than sometimes I can handle. Using a simple, yet affective, weekly planner makes all the difference. This would be my ideal stocking filler this year. This Weekly Planner Pad used the popular Atlas Print, my best selling notebook and art print.”
Each weekly planner pad contains 52 sheets of a beautifully printed full colour designs.
A5-£7 | A4-£10
“I have this print framed in my studio space. Every time I stare into it I see something different. This print has been lovingly created using many hand rendered ink textures layered upon each other and then manipulated digitally. Printed in beautiful full colour on heavyweight 300gsm smooth white board with a smooth finish.”
“Although I adore and use all of the notebooks I have designed, this is my favorite. Partly due to the inside cover print. It’s the perfect notebook for any space enthusiast as it is named after Pluto’s largest moon, Charon.”
All A5 notebooks come with a beautiful custom printed full colour cover (printed inside and out), stapled squared spines, and 48 pages ready and waiting for your thoughts, doodles and dreams.
