I’m a city kid. I grew up in Linwood which, though not in the middle of town, is only a 10-15 minute bus ride to Cathedral Square (back when Cathedral Square did double duty as transport hub and spiritual centre of the city).
One of the first things we acquired in anticipation of buying our first home was a set of three flying ducks from Pepin Design. That instantly recognisable silhouette was so appealing possibly because I grew up in the era of Hilda Ogden on Coronation St, the unofficial patron saint of ceramic ducks.
I’ve recently had a birthday, and of course there’s the tinsel-splosion that is Christmas so when I saw a Make Your Own Banner set on a design blog I was keen as.
