Aw…. this makes me want to decorate a kid’s room or nursery! These forest creatures and the little red riding hood made me smile today… Nicole from the Swiss brand, Océchou, lives and creates in Switzerland with her 3-year-old who inspires her work and goodness, I just adore her cute style. Launched last year, Océchou publishes stationary and fashion accessories like postcards, posters, gift tags, badges, magnets, stickers for children, with alphabet posters in French. And whether you speak French or not, I think you should watch this video about Nicole and her process and products, it’s very, very sweet. I really enjoyed it… And goodness, I’m using a lot of commas lately aren’t I? I’m suffering from comma-overdose.
In addition to being extremely conscious of the cuteness factor, Nicole considers where things are made so Océchou products are manufactured in Switzerland and France and she ensures that all materials are of the best quality and environmentally safe. For instance, her papers are all FSC certified and 100% vegan and so they’re biodegradable. All digital illustrations begin as hand drawings and after using her magical tablet and Photoshop, she transforms her sketches into digital works of art.
