Explore the World of Collective Nouns
Based in the seaside town of Dawlish, Jill Perkins and Jan Morley are the duo behind J2 Studio. As experienced designers, Jill and Jan have created everything from toys to tableware, with their designs gracing the shelves of The Pier, John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s (to name just a few). In 2010 J2 Studio expanded into the world of greeting cards, and today we’re taking a look at one of their brand new ranges for 2012. ‘Collective Nouns’ is a fantastic series of designs that mixes bold, bright type with beautiful animal illustrations. A charming, humorous collection, Collective Nouns comprises eight designs – everything from a skulk of foxes to a romp of otters.
Collective Nouns has recently been licensed by McLaggan Smith Mugs, who have created a fabulous collection of six gift mugs from the original greeting card designs.
Collective Noun greeting cards retail between £2.25 and £2.50; to see the full set, and to find out more about J2 Studio please visit their website. If you want to grab a Collective Noun gift mug, pop along to the McLaggan Smith Mugs website.
