It’s always lovely to work with a local client, and designing the Christmas tea towel and cards for fabulous Whitby based company Botham’s was no exception. I spent a few days in August getting in to the Christmas spirit creating my own interpretation of Whitby, whilst paying homage to the company, that in my opinion, make the best chocolate cake in the world. ‘Top Botham’s’ is depicted at the bottom right of the design, which is situated on Skinner Street in the town.
Since it’s opening in 1865, Botham’s have been providing people near and far with delicious hampers and gifts. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Whitby area like I do, then there are plenty of places to grab a tasty treat for lunch.
The tea towel has my signature linear illustrations combined with duck egg and mustard highlights. The design has also been shrunk down for use on the company’s Christmas cards which are inserted in to hampers and given to customers during the festive period. I’ve popped the design below as well as a couple of close ups. Head to the Botham’s website now to see the lovely items they have available.
