Jason Carberry, the founder and designer behind Fine Moments, branched out to start Umbrella as a collaborative venture in April 2010 with fellow designers Barbara Zuckerman and Elizabeth Caldwell. “The concept for Umbrella was simple—to work with designers who had a diversity of talents and strengths, to stretch and challenge one another and create a vast and expansive line of stationery products both visually and literally,” he says. Since Umbrella’s inception in early 2010, the studio has grown to a total of five designers with the addition of Melissa Camacho and Khristian Howell. With no two designers working in any one state, this project is truly a unique collaborative team for the 21st century.
"I get inspired by life. Taking a walk through the park or just shopping can spark an idea for me that I translate to stationery. But my biggest inspiration is my kids. They help keep me young and help me see things through youthful, playful eyes. The world of a child is colorful and magical!" — Elizabeth Caldwell
"My favorite sources of inspiration include travel, culture, music, people watching and fashion." — Khristian Howell
"My hand bound sketchbooks of past and present always inspire me, along with my amazing baby boy and his ever growing collection of books and toys. Grids, maps and things in order. Words, fragments, overheard conversations. Randomness, found objects and scraps of paper have all inspired me in the past as well." — Barbara Zuckerman
"I'm inspired by travel, books and music, modern art, nature, typography, my kids, kawaii (Japanese cuteness), vintage materials and ephemera." — Melissa Camacho
