Announcement! A collaboration between Hugo's Workshop and MKB Designs.

Collaboration news

A couple of weeks ago I received an email out of the blue which made me very excited. 

It was from Laura, a designer at MKB Designs - a bathroom and kitchen designers based in the beautiful Thameside town of Marlow in Buckinghamshire. 

They had been talking about presenting a personalised chopping board to each of their kitchen customers and had found me via my Instagram account.

After a swift investigation of their beautiful Instagram page, I was very impressed and I responded "Of course I would love to meet you!"

I particularly loved this pink sink! 

Isn't this sink just stunning? I don't even really like pink but I love this!

Laura sent me their logo and I set to work creating a few examples to take to our meeting.

I made a large engraving and a smaller one on a solid oak chopping board. They came out beautifully. 

For this example I used the entire surface of a chopping board to engrave their logo. 

This was my favourite of the two options. The logo had some really good definition in the smaller size. 

Fast forward to the day of our meeting.

I met with Laura and Nic, (one of the company Directors) in their stunning showroom in Marlow. 

I instantly warmed to them, both are extremely welcoming and friendly, they are so enthusiastic about their work and you can tell that they have a real passion for design and creating beautiful yet functional spaces for their clients. 

After a few moments spent marvelling at the beauty of the granite worktops on show and drooling over the top of the range ovens, I showed them the samples I had created and a video of how I they were made. 

They loved them! 

We discussed prices, came to an agreement and that's it. A very cool collaboration was born! 

I love MKB Designs work, and their ethos and I am proud to align my brand with theirs. 

Here's to a long and enjoyable working relationship between our two brands!
