Yukka & Stamp is projects duo James Isgrove and Charlotte Overton-Hart who are inspired by the challenge of compact city living and William Morris' adage to, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”.
Current Yukka & Stamp projects include potting plants and cacti into unusual receptacles, as well as making paper goods from second hand materials. We have also worked on various graphic and web design projects, including this website. For comments, collaborations and commissions please drop us a line on the contact page.
Selected Y&S cactus cameras and paper goods are available to buy from the ace Unlimited Editions online shop, which sells a super range of typographic design, art and collectables.
Useful or Beautiful is an occasional blog by one half of Yukka & Stamp with posts on a miscellany of the useful or beautiful (and sometimes both). With a background in literature, visual literacy and the collaboration of text & image, blog posts cover a range of topics which include but are not limited to: books & comics, design, and packaging.
We hope you enjoy Useful or Beautiful.
Appropriate is our newest collaboration which combines the professional skills of James and Charlotte. The Appropriate website is currently brewing, which will soon be open for all your graphic/web design, content and discourse analysis needs.
