Meet the Owner of BubbyAndBean
Melissa Baswell Williams
owner, maker, designer
BUBBY AND BEAN is a line of illustrations, greeting cards, and other intriguing trinkets created by Chicago designer Melissa Baswell Williams. Our work is inspired by spontaneous adventures, positive outlooks, and the memory of Bubby, a rather extraordinary old dog.
Each card and piece of art is individually printed, cut, finished, and packaged by hand in our Chicago area studio. Our work is crafted using a sustainable approach, and special care is taken to use eco-conscious materials whenever possible.
Melissa's work has been shown at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as in publications including Apartment Therapy, Lucky Magazine, Design*Sponge, Women’s Wear Daily, Boho Magazine, Business Week, Discovery Channel's TreeHugger.com, Pottery Barn's official blog, Pinterest's official blog, and others.
