Snowden Flood is the unusual name of this London-based designer/maker of fine quality gifts and accessories. Snowden’s work is inspired by a variety of things including fairground and circus graphics, trees, holidays and iconic London buildings… but anything might catch her eye. She loves souvenirs and her work stems from a desire to design some you’d actually want to own for years on end.
Snowden’s many products include dinner plates inspired by Urban Landscapes and featuring factories, phonelines and chimneys; The River Series – a perenially popular collection based upon a walk around the Thames; and Tree Glasses – whisky glasses that celebrate the seasons through trees. She has also designed notebooks, tea towels, aprons, wrapping paper, cards and prints; and collaborated on a range of organic hand-cut soap.
Snowden has a passion for manufacturing in the UK and has launched a range of furnishing fabrics based on archival designs. She has designed and produced specially commissioned giftware for a number of clients including Dorchester Hotel Collection, Chatsworth House, Tate Modern, The London Transport Museum, Mima and the City of Turin.
Snowden Flood is one of Design-Nation’s Fellows.
