Little U is an occasional magazine for the young at heart. With childlike wonder—but not a juvenile attitude—Little U explores making, designing, illustrating and living creatively with children. Highlighting children’s books, surface pattern design, clothing and product design for young folk, and arts and crafts inspired by and/or made for children, the intention of Little U is to inspire and inform professional creatives and families alike.
It’s not a magazine for children, rather it's about lots of different kinds of creativity inspired by children and the children's industry.
When Finley was a baby, I began to appreciate all the wonderful designs and illustrations that were part of his books, clothing and toys. Simultaneously, I found that other publications about parenthood or children’s fashion didn’t reflect my values or creative lifestyle. Realizing that there was a thriving industry of creativity dedicated to the needs and aesthetics of childhood, I started dreaming of creating a magazine about this world.
