About us

 
Soph & Pete.png

We are a couple who love to create and wanted to start a business with a Little Difference. Sophie Stevens is a geology graduate and artist from the Isle of Wight, UK. Pete Oswald is a professional skier and media producer from New Zealand. Sophie does all the artwork and Pete handles most of the boring stuff (like accounts and marketing).

We like to travel all around the world; skiing, biking and making all sorts of fun adventures in beautiful places, see the videos below. We started this business to do what we love and to fund our adventures, we also hope the art makes people smile too!

After having so much fun in nature we appreciate the worlds natural beauty and all the amazing experiences it provides us, so we are doing our very best to run this business in the most Earth caring way possible. This is why we have started our 1 Card. 1 Tree initiative where we pay for the planting, raising and protection of one tree towards reforestation for every single product sold! We also only use 100% recycled paper products and 100% biodegradable packaging.

Mission Statements:

  1. Make the consumer and receiver happy and fulfilled with a uniquely designed product which signifies that they have made a “Little Difference” to the world.
  2. Make a net positive impact on the natural environment by regenerating the worlds forests with each unit sold.
  3. Sell a unique product to make profit with which we can live comfortably, fund our adventures and save for our future.
     

We hope you enjoy the designs. Please get in touch if you would like to buy anything, have any questions or just want to say hi!

On a trip to Corsica in July Sophie found a secluded little rocky point where she could chill, draw and take inspiration for her Little Difference designs.
An adventure ski touring in Northern Norway with Tove Kockum, Sophie Stevens and Pete Oswald. Norge - Norwegian (Bokmål) for Norway.

Sophie Stevens of Little Difference designs took a journey through the Atlas Mountains in Morocco taking inspiration for her drawings as she hiked Toubkal (4167m) the highest mountain in North Africa. Back on the coast in Taghazout Sophie illustrated her experiences into art.

On the 26th of December 2013, Sophie Stevens & Pete Oswald began a 27 day mountain bike tour around Sri Lanka. The goal was to raise enough money to replace a roof on the Karaveddy Preschool in the Eastern Province, an area badly effected by Civil War and Tsunami. Pete & Sophie rode 1274km, climbed over 8100m and raised $5466 NZD. This is a visual summary of the expedition. There are many more under funded Preschools in the Eastern Province.
