Kathleen Waite, owner of Peppin Boutique in Herne Bay, asked me if I would design a poster and some artwork for her new boutique. In it she makes and sells clothes for children, from newborns to 2 years old. The brief was for the artwork to look like old schoolbook illustrations, but with my own twist. I referenced children’s clothing from the 1920’s through to the 1960’s as the inspirations for the outfits the little characters wear.
This was the artwork design for the front windows of the shop. Kathleen had acquired a wonderful p-class sailing boat as a display centre-piece for the shop, and we decided that it was something that needed to be included in the artwork. The boat also nicely references the area, which has access to several beaches, and there’s a great view of the sea from the shop as well.
