I wasn’t kidding when I said I had enough (admittedly not-so-great) images from National Stationery Show to last well into next year. That being said, today is a great day to share the work of three female illustrators/designers with really distinctive (and personality-driven) ranges. Personally, I found it impossible NOT to get excited about them.
First up is La Familia Green. I can’t get enough of Molly’s quirky style and wry wit, plus she’s added art prints to the mix.
Here’s a really cool screen-printed range that was entirely new to me — Lucky Horse Press. Its creator Michele Lee told me she has exhibited at NSS before, it was my bad to have somehow missed it. I love the bright colors on black — these are black velvet paintings for our age! Uber-groovy letterpressed cards round out the range. Lucky Horse offers an adorable enamel pin range, but my pictures of them were unfortunately atrocious. Shop them and all her wares on her site, or find a stockist here.
Rounding out the trio is Amy Heitman, who I “knew” but prior to NSS had only corresponded with and admired from afar. Who says flat-printed is dull — Amy’s vintage-tinged designs are even more lovely in life if you can believe it. Printed on heavy posh paper stock with touches of foil, they are a treat to send and receive! Shop them all here, or find stores here. Thank you Molly, Michele and Amy for being so welcoming at the show and letting me share your work here. And, look out for more #NSS2016 picks in the coming weeks & months!
