Munken – Cradle to Cradle

Since the start we have mostly used the briljant paper Munken from Arctic Paper in Munkedal Sweden. Esa came in touch with it through book design and it was love at first sight. In 2017 we visited the paper mill one hour north of Gothenburg here in Sweden to learn some more about the paper production and their environmental work. We can tell that after that it feels even better to print on Munken paper.

And now they are the first paper mill in the world to be Cradle to Cradle Certified™!

“Cradle to Cradle (C2C) is a globally recognised standard for safe and sustainable products made for the circular economy. By applying the Cradle to Cradle design principle, we are not only minimising our negative influence on the environment – we are going beyond, to leave a positive footprint! “

Amsterdam

St. Bavo Church in Haarlem with bikes all around it.

 

We went to Amsterdam, Netherlands, to take part in the two day design fair showUP.  It was great days with a lot of new input, both at the fair and in the surroundings. We are already planning to come back!

Bird

“Bird” is a print based on a shadow figure on the wall. For us it’s a good reminder about that simple play can bring happiness. Actually the photo that we have processed and then used in the screen printing preparation, was taken a very long time ago. And now it have found the right form!

It is available in two sizes, the print is the same but there are more or less paper on the left and top. More info in the jollygoodshop!

Jollygoodfellow at Ab Småland

 

 

Some years ago we discovered a new store in Malmö. We are not that much into shopping but this place was something more than a place for shopping. Inspiring settings, good coffee, exciting products with high environmental awareness, a place of activity and a place for rest. It’ s called Ab SMÅLAND, we have been back there many times, and now our prints are there all of December, it’s a big honor for us. And yes, they even let us screen print on the wall ; )

Concrete Landscapes

We find a lot of inspiration both in the city and in the countryside. In a skatepark these two melt together as a  “man-made landscape”.

Lately we have worked with skateparks – concrete landscapes – in our home town Malmö, a city with a generous approach to skateboarding and which has hosted several international competitions.

When it comes to our screen prints we want to highlight the environment, the concrete landscape. The skaters might look at a skatepark from a functional perspective, how to tackle the area. We are more explorers and look at the area as a rolling landscape with interesting forms.

Akvarellmuseet

Maybe this could be our new family tradition. For the second year, we spent a February week at Akvarellmuseet in Skärhamn. One of those places in the archipelago that is crowded in the summer and very peaceful in the winter. A lot of time for exploring nature and aquarelle, what a delight!

jolly good video

We have made a short film to tell some about how we do it – the jollygoodfellow process, some of our inspiration, preparations and the actual printing. Hope you like it!

Suomi!

Finland and Sweden have much in common but there are also big differences. Especially when it comes to war and peace. Finland is a young nation and we feel that the fighting spirit is still present.  Another big difference is the SAUNA that is a part of the daily life in Finland but in Sweden it’s just something that is offered at the public swimming pool.

When we visit Finland it’s always summer, we are off grid more or less all the time and no one is in a hurry. So we can say that our picture of Finland is a bit romanticized. Maybe that’s why our prints based on photos taken over there have a special room in our hearts.

Anyway.

Today we want to say Happy Birthday Suomi Finland !
