We love Corby Tindersticks' products. You will be seeing our little shop slowly filling up with
their happy little items as they have so much good stuff! So, new to our store is the awesome
Tick Tock clock, a felt masterpiece to help your little ones tell the time. We know it'll be very
handy in our house as Evie is coming to that age and we remember how confusing time can be!
We thought it would be nice to get to know the creative mind behind Corby Tindersticks a little
better so we pinned down the very busy and imaginative Carly to find out a little bit more about her.
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Carly Jodie Gledhill I am the chief of design and making at Corby Tindersticks, part time illustrator and Dot to dot trade show organiser!
What makes you laugh?
I'm a big comedy fan, I love a bit of slapstick and dark humour, Larry David, Armando Ianucci, Miranda makes me laugh a lot. When I show at Playtime Paris I stay with the girls from Beau loves and Boys and girls and they make me laugh a lot, it's like designer therapy!
Where do you get your inspiration from?
All over the place, I'll take it from anywhere I can! I love visiting galleries and exhibitions, vintage Italian children's books, car boots sales, architecture. It's really easy to go on Pinterest and search for things nowadays but I don't think you can beat immersing yourself in a good design book or gallery.
Where's your favourite place in the whole wide world?
Hard question! I have to say London at the moment, it's a great place to live and I love exploring it on my bike! Theres always something exciting going on here.
What is your favourite piece from your current collection?
The Happy banner, it's very bold and I love neon pink!
Do you have a guilty pleasure?
(Made in Chelsea shhhhhh)
What's your favourite film?
Delicatessen, It's a French surrealist black comedy and it's brlliant!
What food is evocative of your childhood?
Beans on toast with Bacon, my dad called it cowboys dinner which made it the most exciting meal of the day!
Do you have a special talent ?
I'm really clumsy and really good at knocking things over and falling off my bike!
2015 will see a new collection which I am currently designing, it features animals, outer space and bones, so far!
Thank you so much Carly for talking with us, your film selection is one of our favourites too! Please be careful on your bike though as we think you're a creative genius and very nice person and we wouldn't want you hurting yourself!
Can't wait to see 2015's collection.
