Tom Simper & Simon van der Wolf, Co-Founders: The Umbrella Group

Upon first meeting Tom Simper, he mentioned having two brands in the making -- a coffee brand and a printing business. The interview we set up with him and his business partner Simon van der Wolf proved that those formed just the tip of the iceberg. An iceberg they have aptly named The Umbrella Group. How they came together and created their business are what we focused on in the chat that followed.

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise.
