You know that we love food and drink, and we are also suckers for great graphic design. It’ll come as no surprise, then, that we have fallen for the kitchen poster art, tea towels, and stationary by Crispin Finn that combine both in fab products that we want all of. I, for one, am bummed that my birthday has passed, but have added a bunch of things from the Crispin Finn store to my holiday wish list. And if you’re on my holiday card list, you might even get a little taste to put on your mantle.
Crispin Finn are Anna Fidalgo and Roger Kelly, a London-based duo who create these beautiful illustrations, designs, screen prints, stationary and assorted wares. All of their personal work is done solely in red, white, and blue, which may sound boring, but is anything but—especially if you read about how they decided to work in only three colors.
Though their work depicts more than just food and drink, it’s hard not to be smitten by their cheeky illustrations of ice pops and burgers, old school wine carafes and condiments. So fun.
My favorite, though, is their Classic Cocktail series. They come in screen prints, which would hang beautifully in a kitchen, or cards that have fun quotes. The Old Fashioned has a quote from Ernest Hemingway (“I drink to make other people more interesting.” Ha!) and the Moscow Mule one from Dudley Moore. I mean, come on: It doesn’t get any better! You can even get a pack for the holidays with festive winter cocktails.
You can buy all of these finds and more at the Crispin Finn website.
