Fashion brand Talbots join forces with Jessica Durrant and Karen Mabon to create two unique scarves to raise support in the fight against breast cancer.
Talbots commissioned three internationally renowned female artists including our very own Jessica Durrant anbd Karen Mabon to interpret the courage, strength and determination of women. The result is their 3rd annual limited-edition collection of one-of-a-kind scarves which are available to purchase HERE
Jessica and Karen both shared with Talbots the inspiration behind their scarves:
Jessica, "I wanted to create a light, ethereal work of art, and I use flowers and butterflies in my artwork as symbols of endless change and a quiet strength."
Karen, "As females we are strongest when we lift each other up. I wanted the scarf to celebrate the importance of building networks and helping other women"

Phosphor's Christopher Nielsen was commissioned to create some images for Pixar’s Instagram feed with characters from The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Up, Coco and Finding Nemo having fun in the sun with the theme “Any weather is better with you”.
Chris enjoyed the challenge of illustrating existing (and rather famous!) characters, as opposed to designing characters for picture books himself, as he is more used to doing.
Phosphor's Lynn Hatzius was pleased to see her designs installed (in the form of large vinyls) at the Bee Urban Evolution Lab in Sweden recently.
This was Lynn's first large scale installation and she now hopes to see her work scaled up on a more regular basis.Bee Urban offers interactive and living environmental services in an urban environment in the form of hives & gardens for biological diversity.
