Living by the sea

Coastal inspired gifts

Coastal inspired giftsWe’re lucky enough to live and work by the sea in North Devon. If you’ve been here you’ll know its wild and rugged coastline. The landscape here influences many of our designs and remains a big inspiration for our team of artists and craftspeople.

This week we’re celebrating all things coastal.

Travis has been having a great time this summer. After a hard day lounging around Letterfest HQ, a good hole digging session with your friends, followed by a refreshing swim is just what you need. If you’re a labradoodle in this part of the world, this is how you roll. He’s one lucky dog.
Travis on Instow beachThis view, from our village of Instow looking across the estuary to Appledore, is something we never tire of. Every evening we’re treated to a lovely sunset here (usually with a local Hockings ice cream in hand..). We ♥ the beach.

We can’t tell you how long it took for us to think of something for the letter Z but then it came to us! Catching a few z’s on the beach has to be one of the nicest things in the world. Click here for more info on our Personalised Seaside A to Z.
Personalised Seaside A to Z Art PrintLiving where we do, you’re never far from someone’s beloved boat and it got us thinking.. We’ve been drawing customer’s much loved homes, pets and cars from their photographs for a few years now so why not boats? If you know a keen sailor, an illustration of their pride & joy will be something they’ll treasure forever. For more information on our Personalised Boat Illustration gifts click here.
