"...This same Abi Daniel, besides being the artist responsible for much of the brilliance that Bearded Lady prints up for its clients and itself, also works beyond the studio. Because, you know how businesses – the best businesses, usually – tend to enlist the help of artists and designers to make their products, their bricks-and-mortar outposts, into something that’s a worthwhile aesthetic addition to the world?
