Trifle Studio is the first design studio in the UK whose work is made by creatives with learning disabilities
When it comes to the types of projects to expect from Trifle, Intoart’s extensive output offers a clue to the future. One project that “really sums up the design studio” is Intoart’s recent collaboration with famed knitwear brand, John Smedley, Tom says. Featuring hand-drawn designs created by the designers at Trifle Studio; Andre Williams, Ntiense Eno-Amooquaye and Yoshiko Phillips, the limited-edition collection of unisex sweaters, dresses, scarves and shawls debuts as part of the British Council showcase for Jakarta Fashion Week. Another project that captures the “bold visual language” uniting all of Trifle’s offerings is room for doubt by Andre Williams, a large-scale interior space fusing type and bespoke furniture design, or the playful Andre Serif, a type created by Andre – and a favorite of ours.
As part of the studio’s launch, a new website has been produced, showcasing the diversity and strength of Trifle’s previous projects while offering clients insight into potential avenues for future collaboration.
Tom concludes: “We understand that people interested in working with the studio may have questions, some that people may feel uncomfortable asking about learning disabilities and creativity. We want to build lasting relationships with our clients and ensure that there are no “wrong questions”. We are always open to honest and respectful dialogue on a subject that we have decades of experience advancing.
