‘Take me to a place’ is a collaborative project between Designs in Mind, an art and design studio working with adults living with mental health challenges and Theo Williams, designer, and creative director.

 

 

Since 2019 Theo has worked closely with Designs in Mind to guide them commercially with his expertise. This project was born from the value placed on shared experience something which has been so hard to achieve during the pandemic.

 

Working initially with performer and Poet , Johnny Fluffy Punk , Designs in mind created a narrative based on life post lockdown which was then explored through a series of online workshops. Line drawings became visual storyboards and verses taken from each poem paid illustrative homage to the things people craved most. The Hustle and Bustle of daily life along with the freedoms of travel and special events are celebrated across 4 playful, unique designs adorned onto British bone china. With these mugs the ritual of sharing a ‘cuppa’ becomes  a celebration of our liberty.
