why should design have to be compromised for personalisation?” muse new personalised gifts company pattern & press, “it just doesn’t make sense.”
i’ve generally always been fairly scathing of personalised websites, who seem to only offer cheap, plasticky goods with garish gold customisations, so when i initially came across pattern & press i was dubious to say the least.
but pattern & press believe beautiful design and personalisation can and should go hand in hand, and aim for simply understated personalisation; beautiful, clean design made special by each customer’s individual touch.
as i perused their sleek elegant website i quickly found myself lusting after their simple understated designs, particularly the bone china initialed mugs and the personalised glass display domes, which would make wonderful wedding gifts. i was also especially drawn to the smart personalised tan notebook, which would be perfect for taking travel notes on my next overseas trip… (hint, hint!)
