Bertie and Jack Creativity!
Emma and Becky are the fabulous ladies behind Bertie & Jack, the original cut-out design company, and two of the most creative people we know! Ever since they started experimenting with cutting their kooky designs from mount board in 2009, they have consistently conjured up beautiful creations; read below as Emma explains how they stay inspired.
‘Here at Bertie & Jack our HUGE passion for our product means we are always researching current and upcoming themes and trends in fashion, art and design – it’s a little bit of an obsession actually. Whether it’s flicking through interiors blogs or noting High Street retailer’s window displays that grab our attention, we are always on the prowl for inspiration.
We record our ideas in many different forms; from sitting sketching buttercups in the park, or collecting scraps of material, to drawing out pattern designs on the Mac. Our ideas are filtered through the Bertie & Jack selection process, which means the team all get involved in selecting which ideas to move forward with, with the most relevant to the collection being progressed into a swatch pattern or cut-out design – always with the end product and the Bertie & Jack customer in mind.’
