“It was really amazing to be a part of the Handmade Awards! The whole day way so fun, we had really interesting talks from publishers Pavilion Books and Pinterest, enjoyed a very sunny and inspiring photowalk with Xanthe Berkeley. It had a lovely atmosphere and even our presentation was enjoyable – yes, really!

We were so proud to win the Collaboration Award with our friends Karli and Jacques of designosaur for George the Chameleon, the necklace that goes with everything! For winning this award we were really lucky to be featured in Mollie Makes and to receive personal mentoring from the wonderful Kat Molesworth of Blogtacular. It was such a unique opportunity to pick the brains of this clever lady and get a fresh outsider insight on our business. We also get to go to the Blogtacular Conference this summer (18th June, get tickets), which we’re VERY excited about!

A lot has happened since we won the Collaboration Award and not just for us, George now has a very stylish new girlfriend called Georgette! He’s managed to not let the fame go to his head though! As for hello DODO, we’re super busy working on new designs, new exhibitions, new products, new collaborations and just loving what we do.”
