It’s now seven years since Thea and I first set up Graphic Prop Remedies, so we decided to look back on our exciting seven-year journey.

Having attended a fantastic workshop in calligraphy with 'Quill London' back in December we've been honing our skills with lots of practice! A lovely break in the day just chilling out with our nibs and inks. Getting a little carried away with the January sales, I orde...

Last summer we worked on Get Well Soon for Cbeebies (BBC), there was a very specific colour palette tied to the logo, a very tight deadline, it had to be children friendly and of course costs to think about. We enjoyed making the graphics for this and looking back at t...

Recently we worked on Horrible Science, we had great fun making books from all periods and some lovely, fun logos.
