Hello! Hope you all had a great holiday break. We've had a sluggish start to the year in the studio trying to get psyched up for 2014. It's just so hard to focus when the house heats up like an oven and the beach beckons!
We're trying to get through the last bits on our 2013 to do lists and can finally cross off 'update our website' which sadly hadn't been shown much attention since this time last year. There are too many projects to fit on the homepage. But if you visit the Tactiles page you'll be able to see all the new projects www.maricormaricar.com.
We enjoyed working on some pretty fun and challenging projects last year and it was particularly exciting for us to try some new techniques such as goldwork, patchworking and paper embroidery. Hopefully you enjoy the new work as well!
We've also had a bit of clear out in the studio. Well mainly just shuffled one pile of clutter to another corner of the table... but we have managed to go through our back catalogue of embroidered work and have a few old and newish ones up for sale on our etsy shop.
I've got some summer photos to post up as well as some process behind our Menajin cover. Will hopefully have those up on the blog next week.
The photos above show the Christmas lettering and graphics we created for Shinsegae department store in South Korea and their holiday campaign. We documented our process which was then edited into a behind the scenes making of video. Photos courtesy of the Shinsegae design team.
