Boobies in the house!!! Our embroidered blue footed boobies are all ready to go. The colours and textures are stunning. And you can just iron them on to anything. I’ll be be boobifying my backpack.
We’ve designed our very first embroidered patch... it’s a Blue-Footed Booby. We’ve put them up with a pre-order offer. These will be ready for dispatch in the next couple of weeks. They are iron-on patches so easy least to attach to anything :)
It’s Sunday and I’ve woken up feeling as sprightly as a jumping Fox, and super motivated to get lots of work done. If only I could feel like this on Mondays.

We pluck inspiration from nature and science to create a range of interesting, witty and sentimental gifts, stationery and homewares.

Newton and the Apple was founded by a curious mind with a thirst for knowledge and a love of design. Gemma started this venture with the personalised sound wave art, which was inspired by her research into voice and music while studying for a PhD in Auditory Neuroscience.

The popularity of this unique concept allowed her to employ her artistic younger sister Kerry, and together they have combined their interests to develop a collection of clever products for curious people. Every design starts with research into a new curiosity, like ink blot tests or moon phases, with lots of reading for education and inspiration.

They work from a small studio located in a Grade II listed building in the centre of
Nottingham, formerly an institute for the blind.
