New Look Website, New look Blog!

Happy 2012 and welcome year of the dragon!
New Kirsty Whyte Website
So this is my snazzy new look website and blog.
My new blog posts will now continue on the ‘Blog‘ bit of my website. This is so I can update you all quicker and more often.
Searching subjects is also easier, getting the ‘Google Juice’ flowing (apparently)! You can also sign up to my Newsletter, where I’ll give you a brief update every few months. Plus you can ‘Like’ and comment using your Facebook ID.
As well as the usual ‘Design’ stuff I get up to, I’ll also be posting quick photo uploads about China life; what I’ve experienced and observed. You’ll then be able to search these by ‘category’ i.e. colours,trends, accidental Chinese hipsters etc…all will be clear soon.
SO FOR ALL MY LOYAL BLOGGER FOLLOWERS, THIS WILL BE MY LAST POST VIA BLOGGER. Please sign up via my new website. All my past posts are safe and sound on there and will soon be followed by new ones.
So sit back and enjoy the visual feast of what I’ve spotted so far:

A very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year!

A very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year!

2011 was a busy and exciting year:
With Array Fruit Bowls being launched by Aarevalo and retailing in Paperchase.
Modus Furniture launching the Drew range, which made its debut as part of Designjunction at the Milan Furniture Fair. launching the Limpet Wall Hooks after popular demand in the ‘Vote’ section of the website.
Having two designs selected for Heals Discovers 2011. The Twist Occasional Table and Nesting Candlesticks, launched in September.
…And finally moving to Shanghai as a Product Manager for Designing and developing Upholstery and accessories!

2012 is the Year of the Dragon which is a symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power. Hopefully its characteristics will be fulfilled for new projects.

Keep an eye out for a new look website, that is more interactive, easier to use and constantly updated.
Also look out for new exciting pieces that I’m working on now.
