Field Trip is Back!

Ampersand Design Studio

FT18_Ampersand.jpg

Field Trip is back and we are counting down the days! Field Trip is a pattern and illustration event that we helped conceive with a small, diverse group of established artists in 2016. This year, it takes place on Monday, May 21, 2018, in a beautiful, light-filled loft, close to other Design Week events taking place on the same day at the Javits Center.

Our goal in starting Field Trip three years ago was to depart from trade show norms. We wanted to show our work in a more curated and intimate setting, where artists and clients could relax and really enjoy the experience of engaging with one another. The concept was successful from the outset, resulting in many exciting collaborations with leading retailers.

The show gives clients and artists the chance to get together, review new artwork for purchase or license, and discuss collaborations. Clients can expect to see beautiful prints, patterns and illustrations, in a variety of different styles — from clean and organic, to bold and graphic, to quirky and hand-painted.

The show is fun and informal. Guests can sip cocktails, sample the candy bar, and listen to great music, while browsing through stunning artwork from artists with well-established brands.

The event was conceived by artists, and is totally planned by the artists participating — it’s a really inspiring collaboration for all of us.

Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about the winter holidays? Sure, it's still a little early, but we can't wait any longer to share our new Christmas designs for The Land of Nod!!! We get so excited thinking that these Christmas pieces could become a part of your collection of keepsakes that come out year after year and make you smile. We designed lots of fun ornaments! We love that you can personalize your tree, gifts or stockings with little wooden versions of your family members (including pets) using the Christmas Company Ornaments. Then, the possibilities are endless with the Color Dipped Letter Ornaments... from doing initials on stockings to spelling favorite words! We're a little excited about those if you can't tell!  Then, we were so thrilled to design an advent calendar, tree skirt, stockings and the coziest flannel bedding that works for adults AND kids! So, we sure hope you find something that will add a little more fun to your holidays! We had a total blast designing it, and as always love designing for The Land of Nod Dream come true!
