Hello

I'm Victoria, a Graphic Designer and all-round creative based in the heart of the Lake District. 

If I'm not sat at my desk and rummaging through second-hand shops you'll find me spending precious time with my two young children Neve and Archer, and playing and dancing around the house to our favourite songs.

Ever since I can remember I have always loved creating things, my mum says...

"I would always find you with either a head in a book reading or being creative throughout school. On many occasions you would turn the kitchen into an art studio, where we used to make all kinds of things together."

My eyes are drawn to the inanimate objects that would generally go unnoticed or possibly get discarded. I adore traditional signage, I'm a lover of a beautifully designed book covers, magazines and old advertisements. I see so much value in keeping the receiving of beautiful letters and packages in the post alive, because it just makes you feel good!

My passion for design came when I did my art and design foundation course where I specialised in the subject. I then went on to gain a First Class Honours Degree in BA (Hons) Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins in London.

I’ve had 10 years experience working professionally with major brands from Topshop, Saatchi and Saatchi Design, Elle Magazine and Nicepond Creative. Specialising in branding, packaging design, point of sale and a mix of lifestyle and product photography. After all these years working in the design industry, I am pursuing my passion for print design specialising in personalised stationery for all celebrations and events. My heart really lies in creating the bespoke, unusual and heart-warming. My aim is to keep the art of receiving something beautiful and sentimental alive.

I love to capture and preserve people's lovely memories and stories, whether it be in your wedding stationery collection or your occasion newspapers. I enjoy being apart of everyone's special occasions and milestones. I like to add value in creating something personal and memorable, that can be treasured forever.
