Design Inspiration: Cherry

This quintessential summer fruit has always been a favourite.    There is something so deliciously tempting about their plump, juicy redness you can’t help but eat the whole bowl.

Cherries are an iconic image, and have long been used in everything from fashion and beauty to pop art. Hockney, Warhol and Lichtenstein have all fallen for these sweet, summer treats.

So designing the new Cherry print for our range of homewares and accessories has been a particularly delicious project. We spent a long time mixing inks to get the exact shade of luscious red for the cherries and a lighter pink for the fill behind the leaves.
