Mōglea’s New Collection + Best of the Web

Mōglea's New Collection + Best of the Web | Design*Sponge

A lot of my conversations with friends this week have been about the evolution of artists (musicians and product designers specifically) and their styles. It’s easy to hold onto the first exposure we had to a design or an album and want things to stay stationary for our own nostalgic sakes but that’s not the way creativity and expression work. And that’s a good thing. New techniques, colors, sounds, etc. introduced by our favorite makers allow us to glimpse their creative process and growth. While the first work may always be a favorite, no one can be a fan of an artist while pigeon holding what’s acceptable for them to produce.

It’s always so fun to revisit an artist or maker that has been featured on Design*Sponge years ago and see the transition their artwork and business have made since. Mōglea has been a personal and D*S favorite for years. Meg and Chad Gleason’s newest collection incorporates stunning hand painted stationery and home goods with richer, deeper colors than ever before. The products made in their Audubon, Iowa studio have become more expressionist in the last few collections and this one is full of freehand and abstract pieces inspired by Meg’s artwork. While collection may not look just like the first one, it is Meg and Chad through and through and indicative of where their inspiration and artistic vision has taken them over the years. –Lauren

  • Moglea makes SUCH beautiful stationery and, not to mention, Meg is a kind and generous soul. I had the pleasure of meeting her over the years at the National Stationery Show and her work has always been so colorful and inspiring! Truly a natural design talent! Even though I’ve left stationery myself, I’m still following and buying her stationery because every piece feels like a work of art!
