As professional pattern designers and illustrators, nothing could be more fulfilling that getting to see your vision come to life on truly well-made products for a really cool company. Seriously, it’s everything to us!! So when the Land of Nod Spring 2016 catalog landed in our mailboxes, we pretty much freaked out…calling each other immediately to talk as we flipped through the pages. Designing products for kids is SO. MUCH. FUN. And The Land of Nod is simply just one really cool company to work for. For this spring collection, we got to design everything from baby blankets, to rugs, to wall hooks and even a teepee! We rounded up most of the products right here for you with direct links to the Nod site but you can always just search “Ampersand Design Studio” in their search field to find all current products by us. And, we can’t go without saying, Nod works with some of the most talented designers in the game, so make sure you check out ALL of the latest including other designer partnerships. You are sure to be blown away!

All of you who know us, know that nothing could be more fitting!

If you can, take the chance to peruse all of the images on the Nod website, check out the close-ups of each product so you can really see the quality of craftsmanship in each piece. Notice the way the quilts are pieced together. Check out the artistic stitching on the word pillows. Zoom in to see details of the rug (and you can even get a color sample)! All these bits of attention to detail make all the difference! Hope you love our latest creations for Nod! If you get anything for yourself, please share a photo with us and use #AmpersandforNod!
