    ASHLEY MARY X DESIGN LOOP STATIONERY COLLAB

    LAUNCHING AT NY NOW®

    NEW YORK, August 6, 2018design loop, a boutique product design and development company, is pleased to announce an exclusive new collection of stationery from Minneapolis-based artist, Ashley Mary. The Ashley Mary Stationery Collection will debut at the upcoming NY NOW summer 2018 market and be on display in the design loop booth (#7856) in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from August 12-16, 2018. 

    Painter, designer and illustrator, Ashley Mary, is hopelessly devoted to the idea that the business of play should be a full-time endeavor. Lucky for us, she’s brought a bit of that ‘tude and what "happy messes" can be found in her Minneapolis studio to this lively new stationery collection.

    “Work is work enough and it's best done when riddled with pretty things around you. I'm a firm believer in surrounding yourself with little items that bring big joy. Working with design loop is a lot like play time: we swoon over colors, dream about shapes, and explore materials until the collection feels just right. Scribble a note, doodle a doodle, send a love note, or cross off your to-dos...however you use this bright collection, remember to balance all that work with a little play.” - Ashley Mary

      

    Inspired by the work Ashley Mary does as a painter, these stationery numbers were created for the go-getter who appreciates brassy pizzazz as much as a perfectly color-coded to-do list. Jam-packed with her signature painterly textures, fancy-free colors and free-form patterns, this collab is full of quirky little surprises. Sort of like a piñata at an office party. You know, if piñatas did neat stuff like keep track of your weekly lunch dates, that is.

    “What initially drew design loop to Ashley Mary was the feeling of happiness we got from looking at her art. From the colors to the shapes, her pieces can brighten up any space - so why not turn her art into stationery that can spruce up your work space too? We wanted to bring that instant joy that we felt to more people.” - Stacey Fernstrom, VP of Product.

     

    Featured items from the Ashley Mary Stationery Collection include…

    Collage Craze Spiral Notebook & Banana Eraser:

    It’s hip to be square. Or a squiggle. Or some dots. Contain your chaos in this cutie lined notebook featuring a cover inspired by one of Ashley Mary’s most famous paintings. And… laugh at all your mistakes, then erase them with a giant banana eraser because that’s funny too. https://www.dropbox.com/s/07lydhw1mo2wsp6/2018_05_15_Design_Loop_WD_AM5974.jpg?dl=0

    Circle Card Set: What’s better than a handwritten note? One written on a colored circle that you can frisbee into the air after you read it! Choose from 4 colors to mix and match with envelopes that are lined with fun patterns that are peekable even when sealed.https://www.dropbox.com/s/2grqbf4c6o1nckl/2018_05_15_Design_Loop_WD_AM5936.jpg?dl=0
