For generations, jigsaw puzzles have been a popular form of entertainment and relaxation. There's nothing quite like sitting down with a puzzle and slowly piecing together an image, watching it take shape before your eyes. But in recent years, a new wave of modern, contemporary jigsaw puzzles has emerged, offering something completely new to puzzlers. And at the forefront of this wave is the UK-based brand Cloudberries.
Cloudberries puzzles are different from traditional puzzles as they feature vibrant, eye-catching designs that are inspired by modern art, graphic design, and pop culture. They are made from high-quality, sustainably sourced materials and precision-cut using FSC-certified cardboard, ensuring a smooth fit. The puzzles come in sturdy, reusable boxes, complete with a full-size poster and a cute poem inside.

As co-founder of Cloudberries, I've spent countless hours putting together jigsaw puzzles of all shapes and sizes. Over time, I've picked up a few tips and tricks that have helped me tackle even the most challenging puzzles. Here are a few of my favourite easy hacks that experts use:
For puzzlers in Singapore and Malaysia, the availability of Cloudberries puzzles is particularly exciting as the designs are completely unlike others out there. SYMMETRY, for example, is a completely symmetrical puzzle at first glance—until you realise that the cut of the pieces is subtly different on both sides of the puzzle. BLOOM, meanwhile, has been designed specifically so that it can be completed by two friends simultaneously, while they sit on opposite sides of the same table.
If you're interested in trying out a modern jigsaw puzzle for yourself, Cloudberries puzzles are now available exclusively in Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei. Whether you're a seasoned puzzler or just starting out, these puzzles offer a fresh and exciting challenge that's sure to delight!
