Introducing Colourful Dove :
Who are the faces behind Colourful Dove? We’re a husband and wife team, Mark Baldwin and Helen Molyneux. We’re parents to two lovely girls and a dog called Macy. Our backgrounds are in design, marketing and branding and we’ve been lucky enough to work with some fabulous brands over the years to hone our skills so we could launch our own product! We’re passionate about great design and especially when it’s bright and colourful and can brighten up your day and make you smile. That’s what it’s got to be about: making every day colourful to make you smile.
Why and when did you create Colourful Dove? We launched colourful dove in January 2013 after a long period of thinking, planning and researching all driven by a love of design and inspired by our girls. We love contemporary design and especially anything a bit quirky and different that looks good but is practical too. Our girls love bright bold colours and when they came to the stage of eating solids we searched for tableware that we’d love to have on our table and that would inspire and engage our children to enjoy mealtimes. We couldn’t find what we were looking for so we naively thought let’s make some! And so colourful dove was born!
What’s your mission? Our mission is simply to make every day colourful. We want to use colour to engage and inspire children to live, learn and love being children. We also want to offer parents a tool that can help them educate and engage with their children by talking about the colours, the words and the animals to help their children enjoy learning.
What do you wish people knew about Colourful Dove? How the tableware really does help parents teach their children to learn their colours and animals. Our girls have now started to read and write the words so it keeps on teaching even when they’ve learned their colours. Not only does the tableware look great it’s a valuable educational tool too!
What’s Colourful Dove’s secret to success? Keep going; keep smiling! We’ll get back to you on whether it works when we have a bit of success to shout about!
