We launched Four Point Puzzles in July of 2019 with just one title, our circular Moon puzzle that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Over the following few years, we expanded our line to showcase work by contemporary artists from around the world. From bold, graphic designs to fine art, our puzzles offered a modern take on this common pastime. After three and a half years, we made the tough decision to close Four Point Puzzles in February of 2023.
Based in Hamilton, Ontario, our small team was led by founder Lindsay Stead, whose background in furniture and textile design and love of contemporary art built the foundation for our brand. Lindsay has been a jigsaw puzzle enthusiast since a young age so launching this brand was the perfect way to combine her passions and her experiences into something she could create and share with others.
One of the most fascinating aspects of putting together a puzzle is that the process allows you to become so familiar with the imagery. When a puzzle depicts a piece of art, you are able to study the work with an incredible level of detail and find new ways of appreciating it. By featuring contemporary art on our puzzles, we aimed to make art more accessible and recognizable.
