Jamie Armstrong & Holton Brock
Badger & Burke is the weird, colourful lovechild of Vancouver-based illustrators Holton Brock and Jamie Armstrong. They create super eclectic greeting cards and paper goods inspired by retro design and illustration, puppies, good food and bad puns. We have a long-standing love affair with mid-century graphic design and illustration, so naturally it is a huge inspiration for us. The use of colour and cut outs from the 50s and 60s was a huge part of our conversation when creating the look and feel of our cards. We also draw inspiration from our travels (especially for colour), tropical fruit, puppies, Mel C’s gold tooth, our lame sense of humour, candy, Matisse, Robert Rauschenberg, and Nikki de Saint Phalle.
