Were back from Grand Designs Live after a week in London promoting Embrace and the new Word Maps. It’s been a very successful week with John picking up a highly commended award for Embrace ( grainy photo above of Kevin McCloud announcing the award ). Sales of Embrace were very good in the second half of the show, John is now on his way to the International Furniture Fair in New York and spent last night without sleep doing paperwork and boxing up Embrace’s for delivery.
The Word Map sold extremely well at the show, thanks too to Domestic Sluttery
who saw the maps at Grand Designs and tweeted about them, their tweet and blog post has resulted in a steady stream of orders too.
There are interesting new possibilities for Word Map including commissions and wholesale interest. We may also be embarking on a new Word Map this summer showing another area, I don’t want to give too much away at this early stage but if you read this blog you will be first to know.
