Growing up in the Chiltern Hills, just a stone’s throw from the children’s author Roald Dahl, Nicholas John Frith  now lives and works on the Dorset Coast. He has a strong mid century style and creates designs for many different companies, including these for Red Cap Cards.

Like myself, Nicholas includes humour in his work.

Nicholas also works with ceramics, he’s created a fabulous wildlife range selling through Magpie.

A good reminder here, originally designed for the Bournemouth Air Festival in 2013, to… Let Your Imagination Fly. Something we should all try and do more often.  Thanks Nicholas and I hope this makes you smile today too.

    I love these! I would love the ceramics especially. I’m going to copy & paste and share on twitter and Facebook as somehow can’t see buttons on this page.

      Thanks Mel. Yes those mugs are fav’s of mine to but the eyes are circa 1960, I can’t claim to have used them first lol
