About Us

Lucy Barfoot + Lucy Duggan

Back in 2009, Lucy + Lucy began collaborating as artists, brought together by their mutual love of To Do lists. They spent 7 years leading the work of Light Box The Happiness Project, a not-for-profit mental health company they founded together. They then decided to take their own advice and seek new ways of having fun and being creative together.

Barfoot + Duggan was born, and from their design studio in Bristol, UK, they now spend their time creating patterns a plenty.

LUCY DUGGAN: The Wick

Duggan likes to write, draw and collage. The doodles and illustrations she feeds Barfoot are the starting point for many B+D designs. She’s quick on her toes, carries her sketch book wherever she goes, reads a lot, and graduated from the UK’s Leading arts and cultural leadership programme in 2016.

LUCY BARFOOT: The Candle

Barfoot has a love of repetition. Her Fine Art degree was the trampoline to her creative life. She loves nothing more than getting absorbed in making, with a bit of disco playing. She’s the king of colour, as you can see from the designs. When she’s not pattern making she’s in the pottery studio.

Our Shared Values

Our shared optimism ensures we know that ‘We CAN do it.’ Self belief lets us take the leaps we need to.

value-1havefun1

We make sure we have as much fun as possible – making each other laugh is the cornerstone of our relationship.
