About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

A lovely new client

Crikey my rethink on the agent front has really paid off. I decided to go it alone and market and sell myself, I've just got my shops looking full and yummy, plan B is then to start emailshooting blogs and getting some freebie publicity to increase my traffic.

There I was pootling along when I got a call from Jenny at House interiors and gifts in knutsford. She saw my work on Folksy after having a tough time getting cards down the usual avenues of tradeshows etc. She placed an order and we were both happy!

So all you designer makers out there, there are lots of great independents who need little guys like us so it's important to make your presence known.

I can recommend a trip to Jenny's shop,you can also shop online. It's adorable, she's got a great eye and it's very british without being twee!
