Otway & Orford
Otway & Orford produce hand sewn silk pocket squares. They collaborate with artists and the themes they choose are based around hobbies and interests of the potential pocket square owner. Themes include sports, cars, boats, planes and much more. Our job is to take the art imagery and prepare this for printing onto silk. Colour correcting, removing any blemishes or logos from the images, re-sizing and adding borders to create a frame. We also design the packaging & print the Otway & Orford cards, leaflets and marketing material.
“Since our launch in 2020, we’ve worked with Maria at Doodlebug Design to finalise the designs of our silk pocket squares and then create the artwork for our manufacturer. The design from Maria has always been a perfect enhancement to the art designs we work with and the artworks have never required tweaking at the factory as they are always spot on. Maria has also created communication materials for us and they always look strong. I really like working with Maria; she’s lovely, she really thinks about the briefs and produces a great job every time.”
Mark Owens – Founder of Otway & Orford
Having worked with lots of packaging guides over the years, means we are very experienced in adapting supplied packaging assets to suit our clients needs.
Following the guidelines is essential but being able to translate specific rules to fit various cutter guides and print limitations is a necessity in the licensing world.
We have worked on many apparel designs as part of style guide creations. Taking the licensed character art and icons to create bespoke ranges that sit within the guidelines.
Used as inspirational starting points to help the Licensees to create their own individual and creative ranges of apparel.
Product Design Visuals
We are often asked to put together presentation boards for Licensees and Licensors. These are used for internal communications to show how the character or icon can be used across a variety of product and apparel and also as sales tools for potential Licensees.
We were asked to develop some boards for a Go Mini range. The toys were already in development and the boards were used to show the breadth of potential for the Go Mini brand.
