‘Fit For A Queen’ Card Range Launch

  As promised here is my ‘Fit for a Queen’ card range. I have designed these as special edition cards for the Queen’s diamond jubilee in June 2012. I will upload the images to the gallery by the end of the week so the designs can be seen closer. If you are interested in purchasing any of the designs get in touch via the details on the ‘say hello’ page.

Corgi Card Design

  My sketches I scanned in to make up the card design. I wanted to make the corgi the focus of the card, and make the corgi a simplified style to get more of a iconic feel rather than realistic.

 I then added more sketches, traditional British colours, and material texture in the background. I also used the corgi character in the repeat pattern design below…

I wanted the design to have a retro iconic feel to it, and combine the digital colours with the sketched coloured pencil elements. These two designs are part of a series of 6 special edition Jubilee 2012 cards I am working on.

New Card Designs- in progress!

 Been working on some new card designs today- here is a screenshot of what I have so far. I am working on a 2012 series for the jubilee. Still needs some tweaks and bit more work but getting there…!

2012/13 Trends in Stationary

 Trend Bible area for latest trends for 2012/13 in stationary…

 They are predicting patriot themes, as you may expect, with the Queen’s jubilee and the olympics. They expect iconic British references such as postage stamps and buildings. Trends also predicted are reds, monotype and papercrafts. There was defiantly a strong presence of hand crafted elements throughout Top Drawer, which I think is always a good thing! It’s nice to see designs individually crafted with personal touches, especially in the greetings/ stationary industries.
