Below are our latest “New Design” mobiles. These are the mobiles that go through the full creative process – brainstorm, design, collaborate and balance.
Inspired by our years living in the Elk Valley, bighorn sheep can be found climbing the local rocky mountain cliffs. These fearless animals are commonly spotted on the side of Hwy 3, close to Elko, and are not bothered in the least by the speeding cars zipping by. Bighorn Herd is the perfect mobile for mountain themed nursery or kid’s bedrooms. We wouldn’t want to limit the age of a mobile as we fully believe that mobiles are for everyone.
