Sidonie met Kyle Clarke in Dorset in 2011 and the pair founded their design studio, Studio B (previously Something Good), shortly afterwards. They relocated the business to Bristol in 2012 and opened their first shop as an add-on to the studio in 2013. Papersmiths opened its doors in 2014. Alongside running the studio, Sidonie manages the shop and our team, sources our products and oversees our press, website and marketing.
Becks joined us as our Store Manager in early 2016. Having specialised in artists' books and independent publishing at University in London, she is always on the look out for the most exciting releases in printed matter. Becks also manages our social media, and assists with buying and marketing. She enjoys yoga, the colour navy, the ampersand symbol, and can't go a day without a good flat white.
Rachel interned with us in 2014 and has been with us ever since! She is the lead designer for Papersmiths, working on our website, marketing and press. She also oversees our visual identity on top of her main role as designer at our sister company Studio B.
Rebecca is another of our super Sales Assistants here at Papersmiths. With an eye for detail and style, she graduated in Photography and has since worked for designers and agencies in both Bristol and London. She is constantly looking to get involved in creative projects and pop ups and says her time spent studying in Budapest was the most exciting and inspirational.
