The Maker’s Atelier offers a range of stylish dressmaking patterns and unique making experiences.

Eighth Day created a brand for The Maker's Atelier that combines beautiful styling with an underlying element of craftsmanship.

The logo is based on the stencil lettering used on traditional dressmaking mannequins, and this was developed into a bespoke typeface. An additional graphic device, for use on social networking websites, takes the shape of a button.

The lookbook features a linen paper cover with the logo letterpressed in grey. Inside, a mixture of paper stock including a transparent paper reflects the nature of the dressmaking patterns and to further emphasise the craft element a fabric label is attached to the reverse.

"When I came up with the idea for The Maker’s Atelier, I knew the involvement of Eighth Day would be crucial to its launch and future success. It was a unique and untried concept that I was proposing, but Jo and Sarah were undaunted by the prospect. They and their team have worked tirelessly to produce what you see here; the attention to detail sits perfectly with The Maker’s Atelier's design sensibility and company ethos. I can’t thank Eighth Day enough for helping me bring The Maker’s Atelier to market."
