twice designs is the work of Sarah Barnett.
It's a celebration of vintage style, illustration and sensibilities.
With a product range that includes original vintage advertisements, maps and games, twice designs is about making you smile, remember and enjoy.
It's about putting things of the past in a new context. Seeing something afresh. Recognising the functional things that were incidentally beautiful. Allowing the joy of nostalgia to blossom and delight.
twice designs also offers a service to interior designers seeking vintage, one-off and bespoke products for their clients.
With a background in history and journalism I have a deep affection for historical ephemera and the paraphernalia that informs our understanding of social history. I am passionate about vintage design and illustration and convinced that these connections to the past can delight and entertain us.
Given my background I am fascinated by provenance and context. It is not just the objects that I find fascinating by their role, purpose and what they can tell use about those who have lived before us.
twice designs is about second chances - recycling, recontextualising and relishing the incidental beauty of all manner of vintage design.
