A playful collection of imagery for The Modern Baby to showcase each of their product categories. Capturing the brand’s personality through product selection, props and a little storytelling.

Big Thanks to James Champion Photography.
We wish Vicki all the very best for the future. But what now for Supafrank?
We see the future of Supafrank as a hub of creativity: vibrant, playful and spirited. Connecting talented people who want to work on fascinating projects. See more here.
Using design thinking + business strategy, we will solve problems and create positive outcomes. These are the foundations of Supafrank.
We are working on some exciting projects; creating new brands and products as well as developing some classics. If you are brimming with ideas and would like to be involved, please email your folio to us and tell us what kind of projects you love to work on.
After the most wonderful four years since Katie and I jointly created Supafrank from a tiny room in Clerkenwell with only a small yet loyal fan base, we have developed into a busy studio with an inspiring mix of clients from all over the world.
However, there comes a time to move on to new challenges and as of today I will be leaving to pursue new ventures in design, illustration, travel and some volunteering.
A big thank-you to all who have been involved and contributed to this super journey. It will be great to stay in touch and hear your news, so please note my new contact details below.

Working with UK manufacturer Richard Burbidge, we’ve defined a product design strategy that encompasses their brand, utilises their manufacturing facilities and appeals to their customers.
We investigated consumer and market trends to identify opportunities for growth in the future. And took the project forward by presenting initial concepts and developing a new take on stairparts for a DIY’er.
We’d love to share the project, but it’s top secret for now.
We’ve been working with British manufacturer Richard Burbidge to design and develop a new range of metal stair parts. See the project in more detail here.
Working with the lovely folk at Extreme Slovenia we created their new brand identity. The re-brand was applied to multiple elements from T-shirts to fliers and a little larger in scale, their booth at the Ski and Snowboard show.
Here’s a few early images, we will be posting the full range on our Projects Page soon, so watch this space!
We are excited to share that we will be partnering with The London Design Festival to present ‘Creature Collective’ an exhibition of interior products and illustrations inspired by curiosities from nature.
Come and see the journey from initial character sketches to pared-down components that distill the spirit of the original creatures. The few simple components can be interchanged using just one tool – a mallet – to make up a stool, a hook, a light pull and a light. The finished products combine quality and durability with a unique personality.
Location: The Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage Street, London E1 5LJ.
Time and dates: 22–25 September 2011, 10am to 8pm (Friday 23rd late night)

We’re really pleased we had the opportunity to work with RNLI, a charity close to our hearts. (Both being brought up near the sea in Devon and Yorkshire) We were invited to re-design their confectionery range which retails in their shops across the UK. You can see the full range in the Projects Page.
Here’s a few shots of the illustrations that we presented at our exhibition! They’re hand pulled screen prints, with paper cut eyes. They will be available on our online shop next week! (FSC accredited paper and 100% solvent free inks)
Creature Collective range launches at Clerkenwell Design Week. We are open for one more day tomorrow (Thursday) so please pop in and say hello! Thanks to everyone who’s visited so far this week :)
