Louise Evans of super duper things interview

I like Louise's quirky style and designs. As I recently found it's a pleasure to work with. She has designed my new logo and the knots collective flier...and it only took us less than thirty emails exchange! :)

Who are you?

By day I'm a graphic designer, mostly specialising in book design. When the feeling takes me I like to sit at my desk and make little bits of jewellery, accessories, the odd bit of sewing.
Describe yourself in three words.
This is difficult.
As a child you were?
Shy, scrawny, wearing custard yellow polka-dot shorts. I loved those shorts, I have no idea where they came from.

When you wake up in the morning...?
I put my alarm clock on the other side of the room so that I have to get out of bed to switch it off. Then I get straight in the bathroom to remove any temptation of getting back into bed.

When you go to sleep...?
I'm so pleased. I love sleeping! I read until I fall asleep, then drag myself back awake to turn off my lamp. It's not a very good system but it happens pretty much every night.
What inspires you?
Everything, hard to pin it down: people around me, things I see, the materials themselves.
Your home is?
In transition, as I write. Onto the next one next week!

Your working space is?
Usually an awful mess. I find this helpful though, it brings together materials or components in a way that sparks a new idea.
You admire?
Anyone that is original. The women before me whose efforts mean that I live in a less unequal world.
Best food you have ever tasted?
Daddy's roast potatoes.

Thank you Louise.

Louise's will contribute to the pop up shop with her bijoux jewellery.

Louise seems to be a lovely person with a great style. I love the workspace and the brooch.
