I watched The Grand Budapest Hotel a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it. I loved the way it was filmed and adored all of the props throughout the whole film. Half way through watching the film I had to find out who had designed it all. I found out it was a lady called Annie Atkins. I fell in love with the Mendyl's packaging she designed along with everything else and for ages I contemplated telling her.
Today I received an email response from her and felt completely flattered! I feel over the moon to have heard from a woman who has turned out to be one of my biggest inspirations. I am going to make sure that I keep in touch with her in the future as it is a fantastic contact to have.
