Our SBS win has been truly awesome!
In the immediate few minutes and hours after Theo's RT we saw a massive spike in the website figures and a lovely big order appear in our inbox, which was definitely exciting!
The comments and support from the other SBS winners have been quite lovely, and we hope to springboard off this boost in the coming weeks and months and finish our first trading year on an absolute high!
After studying and gaining a first class degree in Illustration at Loughborough University School of Art and Design, I set up my studio as a freelance illustrator in Nottingham. Several years of freelance illustration later saw me ready for a fresh challenge. I attended a trade fair for inspiration but found myself quite disappointed with the selection of talent on display. Later, on my way home it dawned on me that I knew lots of much more creative and talented card makers, jewellery designers and artist/makers and so began the journey to set up The Curious Pancake, where I was able to bring these beautiful items to people who wanted something more than the ordinary.
