Studio tour: Foxy & Winston

Name: Jane Buck
Location:
Brooklyn NY
Company:
Foxy & Winston

What is your aesthetic? Cheery, colorful illustrations hand screen-printed in richly saturated silhouettes onto stationery, announcements and invitations, apparel and home wares. I use 100% post consumer recycled paper goods, water based paints and 100% Organic apparel.

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? Well, its all business in the studio at the back of the shop; no frills, just shelves, books, paints (much of it up the walls and all over the floor!) and paper, so I suppose that would convey my more serious, industrious side behind the scenes. However the front of shop, where I don my shopkeepers hat is another story, a riot of color and inspiration and – perfect for chatting with customers and meeting with custom clients.

Favorite part of your studio?
The Shopfront, it has the most beautiful mirrored Victorian dresser which makes the perfect showcase for all of my stationery, framed prints and apparel, also the shop window where my recently adopted rescue Beagle “Hope” sits on her bed of roses!

Where do you go for inspiration?
I often take walks around the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and visit the zoo’s of New York. I get a lot of inspiration watching the wildlife specials of Sir David Attenborough, other than that I collect National Audubon Society field guides to all things nature; seashells,mushrooms,wild flowers, insects and birds they help me a lot with my designs, along with textile books old and new.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? There are many but I am a stickler for a super hard edged squeegee for printing fine paper goods.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? I’d love a new digital drawing tablet my old one’s worn out, but more than anything I’d adore a proper chair to draw at after 5 years of sitting on a diner chair!

Anything else we should know? Not many people know that I offer both silkscreen AND letterpress printed fully custom wedding invitations, announcements and stationery. Also that Foxy & Winston are actually my lovely parents who live in Norfolk, England.
