Buddy and Bear is the creative venture of graphic designers Sarah and Jon Weston, which began shortly after they became parents in 2014. Faster than their little bundle grew, their once minimal home filled with garish hues and noisy buttons. They instantly recognized a need for products that would blur the boundaries of taste between grown ups and their little ones and wanted to offer a gentler approach to kid’s design.
Using themes such as time-telling, fruit, shapes and letters, Sarah and Jon strongly believe in the power of learning through play. Their sweetly humorous, multi award winning collection is carefully considered to engage young minds, whilst being proudly on display. With bold yet subtle illustrations and colour-ways, their timeless style reflects the mix of sensitivity and playful charm that childhood is all about.
Taking influences from Japanese and Scandinavian design, Buddy and Bear celebrate the beauty in the every day and believe that it should go hand in hand with practicality. The gender-neutral, ethically produced products are treasured as part of the happy clatter and splatter of family homes worldwide.
