For international wholesaler &Klevering Amsterdam I designed these two coffee mugs in a giftbox. One is called Sun (but has rainy blue colours!), the other is called Rain (with little yellow clouds) and they 'live' together in a little weatherhouse, with cut out doors. If you have finished your coffee, you discover a boot (Rain) or a bare foot (Sun) on the bottom of your cup.
For me the mugs are rather abstract, just because I really felt like designing something less figurative. It is a blessing that I can work together with people like Harkon Klevering, who gave me the freedom to just follow my heart. Well, of course I had to make some commercial concessions for him (have you ever seen me using such bright colors?), but the result is still 'Jurianne', at least that's what I think!
The other news I cannot show to you yet, since it is not ready: my new paperdesign! I hope to take some pictures next Wednesday when it's ready.
& K will will take over the distribution of all of my paperwork as well! That is: for those countries in Europe (exept NL) that I don't have a distributor already. So I will be doing less business and more design in 2011! I am really, really happy with that!
Would you like to meet us? & Klevering will be on the Maison et Objet trade show in Paris next week. Their gorgeous and large stand will show the lovely own &K-collection (including 'my' mugs in their weatherhouse)and my Paperwork!
We would love to meet you in Hall 1, stand F94. I'll be there on Sunday.
