Behind the Design: Odyssey

Behind the Design: Odyssey

Discover an enchanting Grecian realm with Emma J Shipley’s new design “Odyssey”.

Evoking the magic of ancient Greece, the design features fish-tailed Pegasi, inspired by the Greek god Poseidon, standing either side of three central Doric columns, reminiscent of the Athena Temple at Delphi. An armoured cat with wings sits atop an all-seeing eye while a majestic, swooping owl observes the mythical scene from above.

This intricate hand-drawn design was inspired by the Hellenistic period, the gods and goddesses of Grecian mythology and Emma’s travels to Greece’s ancient sites. Additional influences include, Ray Harryhausen’s stop-motion animations and the colours of David Hockney’s “Arrival of Spring”.
