As professional pattern designers and illustrators, nothing could be more fulfilling that getting to see your vision come to life on truly well-made products for a really cool company. Seriously, it's everything to us!! So when the Land of Nod Spring 2016 catalog landed in our mailboxes, we pretty much freaked out...calling each other immediately to talk as we flipped through the pages. Designing products for kids is SO. MUCH. FUN. And The Land of Nod is simply just one really cool company to work for. For this spring collection, we got to design everything from baby blankets, to rugs, to wall hooks and even a teepee! We rounded up most of the products right here for you with direct links to the Nod site but you can always just search "Ampersand Design Studio" in their search field to find all current products by us. And, we can't go without saying, Nod works with some of the most talented designers in the game, so make sure you check out ALL of the latest including other designer partnerships. You are sure to be blown away!

We had the best time designing bedding with our own boys in mind (see the Creature Comfort collection above!). And then, we got to design the girly bedding of our 80s childhood dreams (see the Rainbow Charm collection below) including yet another rainbow pillow. All of you who know us, know that nothing could be more fitting!

If you can, take the chance to peruse all of the images on the Nod website, check out the close-ups of each product so you can really see the quality of craftsmanship in each piece. Notice the way the quilts are pieced together. Check out the artistic stitching on the word pillows. Zoom in to see details of the rug (and you can even get a color sample)! All these bits of attention to detail make all the difference! Hope you love our latest creations for Nod! If you get anything for yourself, please share a photo with us and use #AmpersandforNod! You will make our day!

Ampersand for Land of Nod

Ampersand Design Studio

This blog post is one we've dreamed of creating ever since we started Ampersand! We have always been pretty much obsessed with The Land of Nod. Their aesthetic and everything they create is simply FUN and such amazing quality! We always receive the Nod catalog and pore over every page to see what they've come up with each season, and we wanted in on the action the minute we started creating designs for license. So, when we formed a partnership with Nod last year, it was, quite literally a DREAM COME TRUE for us!!!! Our dreams turned into sketches, we brainstormed and collaborated with the amazing people of Nod whose creativity and vision make these products come to life (and they couldn't be sweeter, by the way!)

The word excited doesn't even begin to cover how we feel about sharing these products with you! Our hope is that these are pieces people will want in their homes and that they will be the backdrop for many happy memories for parents and kids alike. We've had a blast designing them and seeing them become real over the past year. We can't wait to see them in happy homes, so we hope you'll share your photos with us after you see the Nod shipping boxes hit your doorstep! Thank you so much to all of you who have been following along on this journey with us, cheering us on in chasing our dreams! We are so thankful for your support. So, what do you think? Do you feel the urge to do a little shopping? :)
