It’s not just mums who find the suddenness of parenthood a confusing, tiring and emotionally-turbulent time. Going from dude to dad is also a big adjustment – often in the waistband area. Forget what you’ve seen splashed across TMZ or the Daily Mail. Those images of a topless David Beckham jogging post-baby, without an ounce of love handle, isn’t what you see behind the closed doors of the average man’s bathroom. For many dads the reality is they don’t bounce back after childbirth. Why else has the term Dad Bod been invented?
That’s why this Father’s Day we’re asking you to really think of fathers.
Has a new bub recently entered your world or the world of someone who’s near and dear to you? How exciting!

How many times have you scrolled Instagram and thought, “wow I love that print, now how do I get my hands on it?”. Enter Kate Fenning of YorkeLee Prints, an Australian online print store full of uniquely creative and (more importantly) affordable Scandinavian-inspired artwork that’s made to style up any space. After searching high and low for on-trend prints for her boys’ rooms that didn’t cost the earth, Kate decided to use her graphic design background to strike out on her own and launch yorkelee.com.au. And we’re mighty happy she did!
Also that she agreed to create a special bespoke Mother’s Day print just for us and all our lovely Bonds fans – can we get a woop?! More on this at the bottom of this blog post. In the meantime, check out this quick Q&A with the busy Mum/creative maven here…
Kween of the typographic scene, Bianca Cash, is back at Bonds to bring us something srsly spesh. Having worked on our 100th birthday mural last year, the Melbourne designer has been busy doing what she does best – making gorgeous things with words. This time around, we invited her to create a bespoke and beautiful print for Mother’s Day, which you can download here for FREE! Speaking of Mother’s Day, we caught up with the talented typographer to get her two cents on what this day means to her and her family.
The most cherished Mother’s Day gifts are often the ones that cost so little but carry so much value in love and thought. This year, we’ve teamed up with two of our most favourite designers, Bianca Cash and Yorkelee Prints to create a series of free bespoke prints guaranteed to bring a grin to Mum’s chin. Simply download, print off, frame and wrap. Minimal effort, maximum impact.
