Doodlemoo - what a brilliant name! They make fun, colourful designs for little ones and I recently discovered them as I noticed they love dinosaurs and make customised name prints - both a Finlay Fox favourite. The quality looks great, prices are really reasonable, prints fit in standard sized frames and will brighten up any nursery or playroom. The lovely duo behind the brand have also agreed to give a 10% discount for all our lovely Finlay Fox readers! Yippee!
We asked Doodlemoo a few questions...
Who are Doodlemoo?
Emily comes from a typography graphic design background and Chris studied fine art. We combine our illustrative skills to create fun designs for kids and young-at-heart grown ups, as Doodlemoo. We work in our studio in Surrey bringing doodles and sketches to life through drawing and digital applications . All our designs and characters are original illustrations we have created.
Where do you find inspiration?
We draw upon inspiration from a variety of sources around us and aim to reconnect with things we love as kids. We always try to put an element of humour into the work and keep the characters playful and fun. The typography and design side of the work is really important to us, we want to bring our experience in the design industry to the world of illustration for kids and carefully select the typefaces for our work. Our main aim is to make people smile and inspire others to doodle, draw and play creatively.
What's your style?
Our style is bold, fun, playful and just a bit quirky. We print using high quality inks on conservation paper with a watercolour textured finish. We have taken some time to source the best paper we could find to print on that not only is long lasting but also retains the bright colours we have in our designs
What are your favourites?
Our T-Rex and friends series is definitely our favourite and very close to our hearts as they were our first collection that came from decorating our boy's bedroom. T-Rex is a silly dinosaur, not at all scary above all very colourful. In this series we wanted to create a series of posters that are fun and colourful as well as having some educative facts to promote learning. We have six different poster designs in this series.
Our personalised prints are also very popular making great presents and an addition to any child's room. We have a number of different characters for each letter and carefully match them up with the right typefaces and colours to suit our customer's needs, with very individual, bespoke results.
Anything new and exciting coming up?
We are always drawing and doodling so for the future we aim to add more products with lots of new characters. We have been involved in some fun projects including designing a 'virtual' wall for Supermarket Sarah . This was really fun as we chose to go back to the very same wall in our boy's room where it all started.
Where can we buy?
All our prints can be seen on and are available from our website, The Ethical Market and Etsy.
