We couldn’t have more love and admiration for our featured designer Lab Partners! Sarah and Ryan are the husband and wife team behind the super successful design studio based in Piedmont, CA. Prior to establishing Lab Partners, Sarah was part of the Hello!Lucky team working as an illustrator and designer. It’s no wonder we’re obsessed with their designs! They are the geniuses who created our Visit Series and we cannot wait to continue working with them in the future. Check out their cards in the 2011 Holiday Collection here!
What inspired your design for the holiday collection?
The candy bowl filled with sweets we always have out during the holidays. We also are big fans of the Christmas stocking so we had to do one of those.
What are you currently working on?
Right now we’re working on a couple of projects with Chronicle Books that we’re super excited about. We’re also working with the Seattle Children’s hospital on a project with one of our favorite artists, Amy Ruppel. It’s probably the largest endeavor we’ve ever taken on and it’s been such a great challenge and amazing experience so far.
What influences your style the most?
Color, textiles, animals, science and animation.
What’s your favorite holiday tradition?
Definitely the day we bring the tree home. We always cook a fancy meal and watch The Sound of Music while decorating the tree. It’s a great way to kick off the season.
Best holiday memory?
Sarah: Driving around with my family to find the houses with the super crazy lights.
Ryan: Visiting Austria at Christmastime, everything was so picturesque.
