Nordic Style with a Scottish Stag – Orwell and Goode
Scottish based duo Orwell and Goode, certainly approach their design with fun and enthusiasm, which is evident from their website and the resulting designs and prints. The duo emerged as a result of Mrs Orwell teaching Mrs Goode how to screen print, and…. well the rest is history. The designs are a little nordic in style with a signature motif of the stag running through most pieces linking to the scottish highlands. Really simple and fun…. let me know what you think….. but first some interesting facts about Mrs O and Mrs G.
