Gibsons releases White Logo jigsaw collection

Published on: 16th January 2019

The new collection of design-led jigsaw puzzles developed especially for grown-ups is available to order now.

There are six 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles available in the White Logo range, all of which have been specifically selected for their striking designs and unconventional scenes.

Following the trend of mindfulness and the nation’s desire to spend less time looking at a screen, Gibsons’ White Logo jigsaws are ideal for a new wave of puzzlers looking for innovative and contemporary designs rather than typical traditional puzzle scenes. To select the imagery, Gibsons interviewed prospective puzzlers, who voted for their favourite unconventional designs.

Avocado Park is one of the new puzzles, depicting hundreds of avo-people doing avo-cardio or chilling with their avo-dogs in the park, while Blooming Lovely is a challenging jigsaw that shows a tranquil London bar covered by gorgeous floral canopy. For those who prefer less mainstream scenery, Carnival was created by Hackney-based artist Rob Pybus, and has been specially commissioned to celebrate Gibsons’ 100th anniversary. The busy puzzle is crammed full of celebratory vibes and is the ultimate way for puzzlers to reward their mind with a digital detox.

Kim Garrod, product development manager at Gibsons, commented: “Our classic jigsaws are some of the best on the market and are loved by all traditional puzzlers. However, we’re well aware of the importance of mindfulness among a younger age group and wanted to launch a range of striking, design-led puzzles that don’t conform to jigsaw puzzle traditions. So, we’ve also focused on creating innovative puzzle boxes that stand out on shelf and jigsaw designs by up-and-coming artists.”

Designed and manufactured in the UK from the thickest board available on the jigsaw puzzle market, the White Logo puzzles are made from 100% recycled board and are presented in compact boxes to reduce unnecessary cardboard waste. Additionally, the puzzles are secured with paper tabs instead of shrink wrap to avoid excess plastic waste, adhering to Gibsons’ goal to reduce its carbon footprint.

The White Logo range is available to order now. Contact your local agent or email sales@gibsonsgames.co.uk to place your order.
