The Land & Sea stationery program introduces us to the simple, quirky designs of Donna Wilson, a London-based designer and proprietor of her own line of highly original wearables, furnishings, and home accessories. The bright colourblock illustrations featured in these stationery products are both modern and familiar but utterly distinctive, featuring friendly animals and fantastical scenery. The Land & Sea Notepads showcase a *new format* including two notepads, each with a different repeating design - one inspired by an ocean voyage, the other by a dreamy, cloud-dotted horizon.
Donna Wilson set up her company in 2003 after making odd knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of Art, where the creatures sold out. Since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of curious cushions, luxurious lambswool blankets and a variety of products for the home and everyday living. Originally from Scotland, Donna runs a studio and workshop in London. Her hardworking team knit, sew, pack, and send out products to individuals and design shops around the world.
