Tropical is the 500 piece circular puzzle in our White Logo Collection. This vibrant paradise has been designed by the talented Claire McElfatrick, whose work is inspired by her world. Wherever she travels, she’s drawn to anything with a pattern, interesting colours and texture. Her artwork is a mix of hand-drawn illustration, collage and Mac-based techniques.
Tropical is part of our range of design-led jigsaw puzzles, especially for adults. With the recent wave of young adults wanting to take a ‘digital detox’ and refrain from using devices that can take over everyday life, puzzling is a popular pastime and an excellent way to relieve stress and focus on the present moment. The White Logo Collection is perfect for the new wave of puzzlers who are looking for more contemporary designs rather than traditional puzzle scenes.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
