Who We Are
I am an illustrator living in a quiet corner of the South West, where I create my collection of hand-drawn illustrated cards.
After a few years spent working in publishing as a graphic designer, I decided to swap the pixels for paintbrushes and set up my own business. From my home in the beautiful city of Bristol, I now create contemporary-looking cards that are inspired by my love of natural history and clean, minimal design.
We make cards for people who appreciate simplicity, originality and timeless design. We want to feed curious minds and awaken a sense of wonder for the world we live in. Sending a card is about connecting with the people we value in our lives and simply taking the time to tell them so. They can help you celebrate the big things in life, as well as the precious everyday moments. We think that this deserves something beautifully designed and thoughtfully crafted.
The process begins at our home studio in Bristol, England. All of the designs you see are drawn by hand in meticulous detail, using only brush and ink and are afterwards coloured digitally. We like to retain this link to time-honoured traditions, as it keeps us firmly rooted in our craft in a way that’s befitting for the 21st century.
As a stationery business, we are very conscious of our need to minimise the impact we have on the environment and to this end, we carefully consider every detail of our business and use recycled materials and FSC-certified papers for all our cards. Wherever possible we work with local suppliers to source our materials and print all of our cards on professional presses here in England.
