Paulina Reyes + Kate Spade’s Behind The Curtain

March 1, 2007

I first discovered Paulina Reyes a few months ago while browsing the Kate Spade website. Paulina is a painter and illustrator, and a senior member of Kate’s creative team. While browsing the site, I stumbled upon Behind the Curtain, a cornucopia of imagery, links, and all things Kate Spade, including highlights from her current ad campaign. It’s quite a treasure chest, so give yourself time to peruse the site.

Learn more about Paulina here, and catch a glimpse of some of her illustrative work below. I love the bold graphics and the bright primary colors.

Aren’t these images from Kate’s 2007 calendar the best? The below images show the works of Anik Palulian and Abby Clawson Low. Paulina Reyes also contributed to this calendar. You can purchase it online, available as a small or large desk calendar or for the wall. I can see all the preppy girls lining up for this one with their Kate bag swinging from their shoulder. I love the vibe, very happy and totally screams weekends at the beach, which I’m betting we are all ready for right about now. Dreary winter, be gone!

    Holly, also, when you sign up behind the curtain, you get emailed about AWESOME online kate spade sample scales. I scored so much great stuff the last time for so little I could not even believe it. My favorite was this wicker bag that I know leave out in my living room all the time:

    I just stumbled across your blog (anything to avoid the illustration project due soon) I love it and will bookmark it. I liked the mention of this illustrator/designer also! Encourages me to STOP surfing and get to work!!!

    Hi Holly,

    I have been looking at your blog for some time, but just signed up 2 minutes ago. Have patience, I am a complete novice. Love your blogspot. I’ve already gotten so many great links & ideas. Just picked up my new BluePrint magazine. Awesome! Hopefully I can get some ideas for great pillows for my new Anthropologie Ditte Sofa that should be delivered in 2 weeks. Thanks.

    Thanks for the link Holly! I love the behind the curtain website and spend quite some time exploring it. Very inspirational! Love the Kate Spade calendar too, and will try to order it. The illustrations are gorgeous: great for framing!
