Photographing the folio pieces of Anna from Sweet Polka yesterday was delightful.

Anna's work is minimal and often has an almost child-like quality to it - pared-back, hand-touched, hand-carved, slow, from the heart. Neither overworked nor dominating.
Without any effort at all we identified the visual language for her work and then spent the day letting the story be told in a contemporary yet not overly-styled manner.
Now that we have a bank of images I am looking forward to working with Anna over the coming months on launching a new website and then hatching an exciting textiles project together later in the year. 

As well as a talent for design Anna is an excellent writer and has written a blog post about our day together.
