I Designed a Jigsaw Puzzle for Gibsons!

Sweet Retreat Jigsaw Puzzle

I designed a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle for Gibsons, the UK’s 100 year old puzzles and games company. It’s called Sweet Retreat and it’s available now:

The puzzle features cakes, melty ice creams and lollies, sweets and treats enjoying a tropical beach. There are all sorts of details if you look closely.

Gibsons Puzzles

Gibsons is a UK company that’s been producing puzzles and games for over 100 years. I was impressed with the quality when I finally saw my artwork on the puzzle. They use the thickest puzzle board available so the pieces are thick and sturdy, and the colour’s really vibrant.

It’s always fun to see new, finished products for the first time, and after working on the artwork on screen for so long, it was so strange and funny to see it in pieces as a jigsaw!

Colourful Puzzle Pieces

Perfect for a Cosy Afternoon

Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to relax and spend a cosy afternoon or evening, either by yourself or together with friends or family. Especially if you’re dreaming of tropical beaches, you can watch the seaside come alive and spot all the hidden details along the way.

It’d also make a lovely present for anyone who loves puzzles, cakes, sweet treats or colourful, quirky things.

Fun Details to Spot

There are so many tiny details to spot. These treats are getting up to all sorts!

Here are some of the details to find:

  • A police crime scene.
  • Digging up buried treasure.
  • A gumball pearl.
  • Jelly-fish.
  • Crab cakes.
  • Great Iced Shark – who you might recognise from my t-shirt design!

One of my favourite details is one of the silliest things I’ve drawn – a gummy bear wearing a bikini:

Eco-Friendly Puzzle

It’s great to know that Gibsons care about being eco-friendly:

  • Puzzle pieces made of 100% recycled board.
  • Uses FSC certified paper.
  • Reduced plastic: the box is sealed with biodegradable labels instead of plastic shrink wrap.
  • Printed with vibrant, colourful vegetable-based inks.
  • Reduced box size – it’s the perfect size for the pieces – for reduced carbon footprint.
