In 2012 a secret dream of mine came true, I got to design my very own collection of lunchboxes, tins, thermoses, trays, bottles, cards, invites , pencil cases and wrapping papers for the Norwegian family owned company Blafre.
The collection is inspired by tattooed strongmen, tiger ladies, circus horses and meat eating unicycle bears from the 1900s to 1930s.
