Christchurch graphic designer Mark Catley is into colours (and that's including black and white). His designs are in part influenced by the city around him, drawing inspiration from the shapes and patterns of the post-quake urban landscape. Having worked under the name Trash Design for the last year, Mark is now taking an eponymous approach to his brand. So in the words of the man himself, it's goodbye to Trash Design and HELLOOOO to Mark Catley Design!
If you’re in Auckland, start saving your pennies now for the next Devonport Craft Market on Sunday 7 July, then make sure you head on down to check out the bright array of handmade gifts, homewares, kids' clothes and toys, garden goods, jewellery, art, fashion, stationery, ceramics, vintage finds and lots more.
Grow your Handmade Business
By Kari Chapin · Reviewed by Jess Soutar Barron
Grow Your Handmade Business is the book to give someone setting out on the professional handmade journey. People who are gungho enough to pursue such a trip won't necessarily stop long enough to buy the book themselves, but it is one they should read. On the gift tag you might write something similar to the quote found on page 65: "Surround yourself with people who support you, people who understand the long work hours, the importance of making dreams happen, and people who share their resources and community with you."
If you're a maker, make your online presence Felt! Find out more about selling on Felt.
