Cathy Heck Studio and C.R. Gibson: Continuing a Great Relationship

Austin, TX – Cathy Heck Studio, the prolific, family-run design studio known for its strength in the juvenile market, is pleased to debut a new infant keepsake collection and expand an excellent twenty-eight-year relationship with C.R. Gibson into the new Gibby & Libby line of toys and games.

At the Atlanta Gift Show, their newest collection, Made with Love, a high-end group of books and albums, which features beautiful hand-stitched illustrations with a trompe l’oeil embossed effect, was well received. Both sophisticated and playful, the linen and dusty green palette is gender-neutral and creates a beautiful canvas for the one-of-a-kind hand-stitched illustrations. The current collection also includes a matching gift bag, calendar, and adorable elephant coin bank, and soon, a framed family tree. Other licensing opportunities are available for textiles, greeting cards and nursery toys.

Cathy’s designs have expanded to the new Gibby & Libby line of toys and games, as well. New products have included puzzles, a mix-and-match magnetic game featuring bright and adorable robot animals, and an educational board book and magnet set from the studio’s Here A Hug collection with a farmyard theme.

Sherrie McCulloch, long time marketing director at C.R. Gibson says, “The Heck family of artists is a joy to work with–they present strong conceptual ideas and then take them to final artwork skillfully, and cheerfully.”

Cathy Heck Studio, a design team of Cathy and two of her daughters, Ellen and Julianna, take pride in their concept-to-completion approach to art licensing. They enjoy continued relationships with their clients, who often become both business partners and friends.
