wise words project



A few years back struggling to find that perfect piece for Bear’s Nursery, Andy stumbled across a blog with some beautiful letterpress work by DAVID BURTON with the simple message "Make More Mistakes". As a couple of prolific recovering perfectionists it was pretty clear...that was the piece we needed to take pride of place in Bear’s Nursery.

We know how difficult it is to find great artwork for your nursery so that got us thinking…what if we asked some of our favourite artists to interpret one very simple question...

what one piece of advice would you give to a child?

And so WISE WORDS began.

We love the creative diversity this project has inspired.

These Wise Words may have started out for children but we never seem to grow out of them.

Whether you are looking for that perfect little nugget for your little ones nursery, your office wall or pride of place in the kitchen as a reminder every day, we hope this project resonates with you as much as it has us. 

Head over to our PRINTS page to see our current available editions now and we have a whole host of exciting NEW ARTISTS busy beavering away on their creations as we speak so watch this space for more words of wisdom coming soon…
