Buddy and Bear is an award winning world of playful design for the modern family.
The creative venture of graphic designers Sarah and Jon Weston began towards the end of 2014, shortly after they became parents to Sammy, now one. Faster than their little bundle grew, their once minimal home filled with garish hues and noisy buttons. They instantly recognized a need for products that would blur the boundaries of taste between grown ups and their little ones and wanted to offer a gentler approach to kid’s design.
Using themes such as time-telling, fruit, shapes and letters, Sarah and Jon strongly believe in the power of learning through play. Their sweetly humorous collection is carefully considered to engage young minds and spark hungry imaginations. With bold yet subtle illustrations and colour-ways, their timeless style reflects the mix of sensitivity and playful charm that childhood is all about.
Taking influences from Japanese and Scandinavian design, Buddy and Bear celebrate the beauty in the every day and believe that it should go hand in hand with practicality. The gender-neutral products are treasured as part of the happy clatter and splatter of family homes worldwide.
