Syd&Co is your modern day alternative to Little Miss and Mr Men. There is a style for everyone and something to suit a variety of occassions. Part of the enjoyment of Syd&Co is choosing from the quirky illustrations to create the look and essence of yourself or someone special. The designs range from classic looks to bang on trend and I am constantly updating my drawings to react to seasons and hair and beauty looks and fashions
In the design studio at Syd&Co everything starts with a drawing then it is individually hand printed. I am obsessed with people, fashion and style and have loved to draw from a young age. What started as a hobby outside of my teaching career has turned into a full time business and passion.
Venturing from teacher to full time designer maker a dream come true!
In January this year I handed my notice in as a teacher so that I can focus all my energies on my brand and I couldn't be happier. I have taught textile design at a Cumbrian school for over 10 years. I graduated from university with a first class degree in Contemporary Applied Arts, then I completed a Masters in the same subject.
Three years ago when my son flew the nest to go to university I reinstated my passion with being creative and making things and I have not looked back since. What started as a hobby on my kitchen table has grown into a thriving brand with my own studio in my house.
My mind is full of ideas and I just don't get the time to fulfil them all. Now with all my energies focused on growing my brand the future looks bright.
Inspiration for me comes from everywhere, people, things, places I am constantly photographing and capturing moments and ideas that can be transformed into drawings and new products.
