DESIGNED FOR SUCCESS BUSINESS AS EASY AS ABC
NO DICTIONARY is needed to appreciate the alphabetinspired typography trend.
Letters as decoration are used in every corner of the home and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t feel inspired by bold words of encouragement or a name in their special place?
If you want something different to personalise a special room, you’ll love the quirky creations of Michel Ravid and Jessie Kotzen from Mooza Designs.
The creative pair produce letters and nameplates for children’s bedrooms, male/ female signs, arrows and directions, numbers and some inspirational words.
They say it’s about making people feel special and inspired.
“All our designs are hand crafted individually by us with utmost attention and love. It’s fun, colourful and contemporary,’’ Ravid says.
“All designs are from an acrylic base (which makes them lightweight but durable) topped with hand-cut unique papers, depending on what we can source.”
Papers include Japanese, retro/vintage, funky and quirky styles.
The designs are then sealed with a resin coating to give them a high-gloss finish and create the effect of a ceramic tile.
The full-time mothers work from their home-based business on the northern beaches. “Mooza Designs evolved as an outlet for our creative ideas and passion for design,” Kotzen says.
“The journey began with a weekly stall at Paddington Markets.
“We developed and handmade a variety of products to showcase there.”
Ravid brings her graphic designer background to the business while Kotzen says growing up in an artistic family helped her understanding for design.
Their favourite in the range is the WC (man/ women) reversible plywood signs and the duo says their minimalist look has wide appeal and fit perfectly in the homes of today’s style savvy buyers.
