We are a creative studio specializing in surface art, set design and prop curation for food styling and food photography.

Founded in 2015 by food stylist Tom Cockerill, our range of photography backgrounds has been developed with book designers, art directors, stylists, photographers and chefs to ensure our designs look beautiful, shoot well and withstand the rigours of studio and location photography. Our studios are based in the creative industrial area of North Mills in Frog island, Leicester (visitors always welcome for a coffee and to talk surfaces!)  

We have a selection of food styling backgrounds to buy online or you can contact us with a design commission - we love making one-off designs and can follow your reference images or creative brief.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website - please feel free to get in touch if you need any help or advice
