This month a group of independent designers and makers took part in an initiative organised by Design Collective Chichester designed to promote their work and add interest to Chichester city centre in the run up to the festive period.
Bobbie Print was lucky enough to be selected as part of this group and we joined other designers and makers from the local area in having our products displayed in a scheme designed to fit into what would otherwise be an empty window in an unused retail unit. Products on display include an eclectic mix of prints, jewellery, ceramics and home accessories.
The concept was designed to encourage shoppers to support local businesses and to buy local when thinking about their Christmas gifts.
It was a good opportunity to meet up with other members of the Design Collective and work collaboratively to create a professional and inspiring window. Although the collection draws together several different styles and mediums of work through hard work and creative vision the window has all come together beautifully, with everyone's work being given a chance to shine whilst also complementing each others.
The window looks great and really adds interest to a unit which would otherwise be unused, it also provides a prominent, city centre based platform to local businesses who might not usually have an opportunity to display their products on the high street.
