About Atlas and August

Atlas and August is candour and aesthetics, grounded in craftsmanship. Atlas and August creates unique wall stickers that are hand-painted by designer Jessica Vedel.

The purpose of the stickers is to decorate any room whether it is in a kindergarten, a hospital, a studio, a school, a public place or in the bedroom. When Jessica Vedel became a mother to her son, August, in 2014, she went searching for wall decorations. It was difficult to find something that was beautiful and elegant. Therefore, Jessica began making her own and painted a night sky above August’s crib. That was the beginning of Atlas and August’s journey.

Today, the designs of the wall stickers encompass the creativity of a child and the calmness of good aesthetics.

Brand Ethos

Atlas & August was born with a desire to create beautiful and reusable wall stickers. Thus, the brand's approach to sustainability has been apparent from day one. The fact that the stickers can be moved from one nursery room to the next without losing their quality, makes them a better alternative to other wall stickers on the market. Not to mention the fact that all stickers are PVC-free and produced locally in Denmark.

Brand sustainability

The wall stickers of Atlas and August were created as it was difficult to find beautiful wall decorations. Therefore, the company took the matter into their own hands. The brand creates beautiful wall stickers that are hand-painted and produced in Denmark. 

It was important for Atlas and August to create wall stickers whose lifetime did not end when it was time to move and redecorate. For that exact reason, every sticker is reusable and produced with removable glue. This way the stickers can be moved from one location to the next without removing any wall and most importantly, the stickers do not become waste.

 

Atlas and August’s products meet high standards of production. The stickers have a foil to project the quality of the sticker and secure a long product lifecycle. The foil used on the stickers is PVC-free, which means that no limited resources are used in the products. When you purchase an Atlas and August sticker you are sure to get stickers that will protect your walls while at the same time serving as a beautiful room decoration.

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
