While growing my photography business, my obsession with stationery and design was slowly brewing in the background as some of my wedding clients commissioned me to design their wedding invitations. When I was pregnant with my daughter Blythe, I decided to finally take my paper and wood obsession seriously and Pulp Function was born.
I wobbled up and down the aisles of the National Stationary Show to meet my favourite stationery designers. I was starstruck. I quickly realized that Pulp Function may be a little more than just a pet project.
THE EVOLUTION OF PULP FUNCTION MARQUEES
We owe it to our wedding planner friend, Lisa Wu, who came up with the idea of making a marquee for one of her wedding clients. Our first prototype was made of bristol board, cardboard and glue. It survived long enough for the event but we thought to ourselves - it can be better!
Into the picture comes Albert, my husband, who has some woodworking skills. A very steep learning curve and many embarrassing prototypes later, our big LOVE marquee was created. It made it's debut at the Rebash Show and was a huge hit. From there, our collection grew and took over our garage.
Today, Pulp Function's collection of marquees has expanded into what we call Marquee Art - marquees in the shape of cute animals, clouds, stars and other shapes. Our focus is on creating marquees that are of high quality, fun and modern. We get our inspiration from Blythe who seems to like something different every day.
We believe that art and function can go hand in hand. Creatively and well designed products that arise out of necessity, combined with care and attention to detail, creates a product that will ultimately sell itself. Our goal is to continue to explore, share and make creative and functional products that will bring enjoyment to customers each time they see it.
