We had an opportunity to chat with Cynthea Sandoval, the mastermind behind one of our favourite companies Doodlebug Designs! Known for their fun colours, sweet designs, and ever-expanding product line, we just had to know more about them!
How did you arrive at the name Doodlebug?
We put a lot of thought into the name of our company and wanted something that reflected our personality, creativity and the cute style that we love so much. My dad used to always call me a “doodler” so doodlebug just seemed to be the perfect fit.
Tell us a little about Doodlebug.
Doodlebug: When people think of doodlebug they think of color. The bright, fun, colors make people happy. We hear it again and again at shows and from our customers. That is who we are and who we have always tried to be. It is what we love. Even our offices are painted in our bright color palette.
Doodlebug is known for its colours!
Tell us a little about the process of choosing colours. Our colors have always been some of my personal favorites! I love bright clean color. This part was easy…I just picked what I loved!!
Has doodlebug had some consistent colours since day one?
Absolutely! We are very proud to have stayed true to our twelve core colors: Cupcake, Bubblegum, Ladybug, Tangerine, Bumblebee, Limeade, Swimming Pool, Blue Jean, Lilac, Lily White, Bon Bon and Beetle Black. We do add some different colors and shades to change things up a bit, but you can be sure to find a few core colors included as well. This makes it very easy for new product to coordinate with existing lines.
Do you remember the first paper line doodlebug released?
Can you show us a sample? Yes, they were “Itty Bitty Bugs & Dragonfly Plaid” and “Bloomin’ Bugs & Tropical Plaid”. We were one of the first companies to give our products whimsical names and also one of the first that had coordinating basics to mix and match with our themes.
