In the spotlight this week ..  those super cayooooot cool gals at Scissorkick Design telling us how it all began, and what goes on in a typical Scissorkick day.  There’s talk of tea, puppies & rooftops. . . . and ORIGAMI BACKDROPS. Yes. Please.

Scissorkick Design

1/ business:
     SCISSORKICK DESIGN
     you/your team:
Jen McFadzean and Laina Smith
     where:
      SWG3

2/ describe your workspace:
We love our workshop! It’s big and bright and airy and has plenty of floor space to spread out. We’ve got a massive steel shelving unit that has EVERYTHING on it, every colour of paper, tissue paper, tools, scissors in every size, samples of modules, shapes and paper pineapples. We’ve got a huge desk that we share; it’s the king size of desk. We’ve always got about five projects and several notebooks spread out on there. There’s also a great big window with a stunning view of trees, nothing like a blast of green to make you feel refreshed and inspired. On really nice (and very wind-free) days we work on the roof. Gotta get that vitamin D at any opportunity!

3/ where did it all begin?
It all began in The Belle on great western road over a pot of tea and a few too many caramel wafers. We spent all day whittling down ideas and playing with Laina’s dog Blake who was only a teeny puppy at the time.


4/ favourite work to date? 

My favourite project so far was a collaboration we did with photographer, Caro Weiss and Pyrus Florists. We all sat down and came up with a concept,  a date, booked a space and had a day of creativity. We built numerous sets and shot conceptual and editorial shots. If every day could be like that our job would be heaven, it was so much fun. We got to experiment and showcase some of our wearable origami. The end result is a beautiful collection of images and Caro took a time lapse video of the whole thing which you can find on our facebook.


5/ who/what inspires you?
We get inspired by geometric shapes, really great interiors, interesting colour combinations, nature, the summertime and sunshine, inspiration is everywhere.


6/ describe a typical day:

We’ll usually meet up quite early in town for supplies and coffee and then walk to the studio discussing the work we’ve got on. We’ll set to work on a few things, get some lunch (on the roof if Glasgow weather allows) experiment with new designs, listen to music, sometimes go for a walk to clear our heads and get another cup of coffee and usually we’ll be done by teatime where we’ll return to our other halves for dinner or we’ll just go to the pub! On install days it’s a whole different story. Every installation is different which is a lot of fun, we love seeing all our hard work come together to make someone’s special day even more unique and beautiful.


7/ where’s your favourite place to go? 

Our favourite place to go apart from the studio of course is “all that is coffee” at southblock. They make a mean coffee and we really love the space. It’s so clean and white and refreshing. We don’t really have a favourite night-time spot. Anywhere that sells margaritas or fun tropical cocktails, we’re easily pleased! You can also find us at Bier Halle where we’re a sucker for the 2-4-1 pizza. We LOVE pizza.


8/ favourite wedding venue:

My favourite venue to date has to be the Kinning Park Complex. It’s a really cool space, bright, with big rooms and gym-like floors. It’s an awesome backdrop for colourful decorations and it’s totally unique.


9/ best piece of advice you’ve ever been given:

It may be a cliche but… If life gives you lemons..
