A moment with Doodlemoo

who are you, How did you get started, what do you make ?

We are Emily and Chris, an illustrator/graphic designer and an artist/illustrator.
We got started when Chris did some really cool sketches that I then worked up into illustrations. We both got really inspired by each other.
The stuff we make is colourful and playful designs, mainly for children but sometimes for adults too. We started with a number of prints but are looking to develop other products too.
We have been doodling most of our lives and that’s where our name comes from with the ‘moo' - fun touch. Hence our business name

What/who inspires you ?

We get inspired by lots of different things, such as typography, fine art, Japanese illustration and contemporary cartoons.
I Emi loves contemporary art, Matisse, Paul Klee, characters we grew up with like Miffi, Astroboy, Japanese manga, David Shrigley, Friends with you, Saul Bass...so many favourites!….while I, Chris loves graphic artists like Tom Gauld and Stephen Collins and fine artists like Philip Guston or William Scott.

Your favourite pieces and materials…

Our favourite piece has to be our very first, which is the dinosaur series. They are very special to us, as we developed it after our first son was born and painted his whole bedroom in the designs. The Alphabet is also a favourite as we had so much fun making it, developing the characters and putting them together with the cool typefaces.

As a child, what did  you want to be when you grow up ?

I (Emi) wanted to be an astronaut for a long time…. (Chris) I was obsessed with fossils for a while so wanted to be an archeologist but I changed my mind a lot back then!

Favourite place to visit in the UK?

One of my favourite places in London has to be the Southbank, there are always interesting things going on for all tastes. I love the great festivals that are organised there especially, for kids and parents
