17 September 2014 — Job Update

To everyone who applied for the job at the studio: Please be patient. My sincere apologies that it takes me so long. I will get back to the people I saw or been in touch with.

06 July 2014 – Belle Epoque opening



Yesterday we went to the soft-opening of Belle Epoque, a new Patisserie we are designing. Their beautiful cakes will be available from today on Upper Street in Angel but our design, especially all the different cake boxes, needs a bit longer to arrive. It will be ready for the official opening. So far there is only a simple logo in the window and even that needs to be replaced. The lamps we picked look good though.
